Hello,
One of my cousin as started a long time ago the family tree that includes my father.
I'd like to start my own to add information and enhance his tree regarding my mother, the mother of my father, etc ...
Is it possible (he is interested too) ?

Sure! Ask him to do an "export" of his tree. You would then "import" his data, and then build up your tree from there!  8)

Thanks a lot for your answer.
But I don't want to duplicate his tree, and correct me if I'm wrong but that's what will do the export / import operation ?
Id like that the changes he mades in his tree, can be accessible in "mine" and vice-versa.

Does someone know if it's possible ?

Again, thanks a lot for your answers.

Sincerely sorry for the delay.

It's actually not possible to link two family trees.

OK,
Thanks a lot for your answer (it would be nice and useful if you ever could do that).

And just add a link ?

I have to say I am not sure why we can't link trees. What is the point of making connections with other trees if we can't link them? retyping everything in another tree could take ages!

Linking family trees is in our to-do list.

You must copy the information to your own family tree.
