i am getting more and more frustrated. I was given a package costing over £50 last Christmas. I then discovered I still didn't have access to all the features, so I paid another £50 to go premium. Being rather busy I haven't had much time to use the software until I realised that time was running out. Now I find that for Scotland the software is no good. The birth marriage and death records are very limited. What on earth have I paid all this money for?
A Family Site Subscription (Premium or PremiumPlus) entitles you to increased storage on your family site for people in the family tree, photos, videos and documents.
When you upgrade one of your family sites to a MyHeritage site plan you get:
* Increased family tree limit * Extended storage for family photos, videos, and documents * Priority customer support * Family Tree Builder Premium – Smart Match Merge, All-in-one charts and interactive maps * Special features like Timeline and Timebook * Enhanced Smart Matching – confirm and reject matches, contact Site Manager, automatic merge * Access to the MyHeritage collections in SuperSearch - our powerful search engine - to boost your genealogical research.
A Data Subscription entitles you with the access to billions of historical records in all the collections in SuperSearch. You also get unlimited access to Record Matches, including confirming and rejecting matches, if you have a family tree on MyHeritage.com.
In addition, you can save and extract information from historical records you find in SuperSearch or get with Record Matches directly to your family tree.

Note also, that we are constantly working on increasing our database. On a bi-weekly basis, new documents are added to existing collections, new collections are added as well as the coverage of countries is broadened. Therefore, a specific information that you could not find today, you might be in a near future.
I just got a message about a bunch of discoveries which match some of my family. I added them to my database but now what? How do I find the originator of these records and contact him/her? No matter what I do I can't find out how. My data cam from a J. Kellermeier in Germany I presume. How does one contact such folks. That is supposed to be the purpose of this site but you make it awfully tough to use.
I am manging 2 trees. I have my tree and my husbands tree. When I started I used my married last name and now that I am doing one on his side the 2 trees have the same name. Is there anyway I can change my tree to my maiden name? I just know somewhere along the line I am going to make a mistake and get them confused.
2012-ben készítettem itt egy oldalt, amire feltöltöttem adatokat. Akkor még ingyenes volt. Most szeretnék hozzájutni az adatokhoz, de csak akkor láthatom, ha fizetek. Hát erre nekem nincs 40.000 forintom. Adjátok vissza azadataimat és a fényképeimet, ingyen és bérmentve, mert akkor még ingyenes volt!
Can I add a name to my FTB project (and Sync with the site) without any connection lines? There is a person whom I strongly believe is connected to my family, but whose relationship, if any, is unknown. My hope is that a Smart Search might uncover the connection I seek.
It is a good business, if you are an owner of it. You put your family history in, leave the account, and they have all your data forever. How many matches have you seen when the account was not touched in years? The largest concern I have seen is the accuracy and integrity of the data. I have seen Instant Discoveries that were incorrect, data in people trees that are incorrect. Even when you provide the facts and URLs with correct details. When you communicate to the owners, they will not correct their sites. Almost no governace of the data. Wild, wild west. Not really a rip off, just a big unmanaged database.
Thanks for your feedback on this and I totally understand your concern.
The Instant Discovery feature was designed to allow members to easily add branches to their tree with a few clicks online. Many users do enjoy a feature of the sort.
That being said, If you find information that is incorrect from a family tree, we recommend contacting the site manager to debate editing their information. You can contact a site manager in your smart match panel. For more information, please see the popular FAQ:
In the case scenario where you would like to remove wrong information from an Instant Discovery that was accepted, we recommend that you restore a backup of your tree from before you accepted the discovery. This will ultimately allow you to review those discoveries as smart matches for each person that is found in this discovery in your smart match consensus page.
If you find that a match is wrong (sometimes siblings are matched with each other for example), just mark it as rejected.
Marking the match as rejected will help you manage your matches, and will also help us understand that this should not be regarded as a Match in the future. For more details please read the following FAQ articles:
Thank you for the feedback. I have used Discoveries once or twice. Yes, I know how to Reject, however, once you communicate with the person and tell them the error...rejecting could be considered more negative feedback for that person. Now, what if you are related to that person, not knowing prior to the poor match.... you do not want to upset the relatives.... thus an independant review/arbitration would be needed to take place. This would help maintain the accuracy and integrity of the data. Not sure if MyHeritage has this or not, however, it would be helpful.
