Add a new individual

Available with a Premium subscription

On mobile

  1. To add your first individual, tap the Add Individual button on the Heritage Home screen.
    • If you already manage one or more individuals, add another by tapping the plus (+) button at the top-right of the Heritage Home screen.
  2. Enter the new individual’s name and birthdate. Both are required.
  3. Optionally add a profile photo. You can also add a photo later.
  4. Tap Add.
    • If one of your friends already added someone with the same name and birthdate, you will be prompted to request access to the individual they added rather than create a duplicate individual. They will be notified that you requested access and the individual will appear in your list as soon as they grant access.
    • You can create another individual with the same name and birthdate, if they are not the same person.
