In FTB tree view the wife will then have two (or however many) 'husbands' listed in her 'card'. Only one husband will show with the wife (and any children of THAT couple) at the one time. Click (in the wife's 'card') on the name of another partner to get his details and the details of children to THAT couple.
All partners will usually show in Matches view (depends on number of 'family' showing).
Lots of people copy entire trees over to their own tree, ending up with trees of very large sizes (25000 records and more) that are difficult to maintain or even traverse.
It would be great if MyHeritage were to offer a feature that would allow to link to another tree through a common record. To this end, it would suffice the add a hyperlink capability to the description of records. If that hyperlink points to a valid record of a person on another tree, then the color of that record should change and clicking on that record would activate the hyperlink taking you to that other tree.
I CANT get hold of MY HERITAGE as it keeps saying I hav a invalid email address (which is incorrect or how did I log in!!)... so cant send a query to them direct...
HELP - somehow I have become a manager of someone elses tree which is NOT mine (I was only a member) their site has expired, I don't want to and don't no how I ended up being their sole manager. how do I get my name and details off this site without deleting all their tree????
hmmm ok, I thought that might have happened... but I thought its a bit unusual ... as its no use to me cause I cant access it anyway but she has spent a lot of time on it... hmmm back to the drawing board as no idea how to contact her with no email address - thanks for that...
Just go to the first person under the wrong parents, right click on that person, choose parents, then choose replace parents, and attach the person to the correct parents. All children, grandchildren, spouses, etc. will go with that person. Have a good day. Charles
I wouldn't mind scrolling, or small letters, but I'd like to see all the people and the vastness of the family tree. If I'm in the bottom of the tree, not only one part of the ancestors are my "preferred" ancestors, but all of them!
I agree with you. I once suggested that MH could set out family trees (for printing, especially; probably not in the web site) in the form of a scroll. That is, or could be, your 'horizontal expansion'. There are printers available (you might have to work with a commercial printer, or MH could do it) which print on a continuous roll of paper.
And you could do it on A3 width paper, say, to see lots of information at the same time. Perhaps even wider paper. That would give the space needed to continue the 'family lines', there would be a lot of them in a big tree.
And if it got very long you could certainly set it up as a scroll, unrolling it from one end as you rolled it up at the other. It's old technology used in Jewish religious writings, and still used in riverboat charts which you unroll as you go along the river.
Definitely do-able, with a 'careful designer and a good programmer'; and input from the Genealogists in My Heritage.
Sajnos annak, hogy a teljes családfát lássa fizikai akadálya van. Lehetsége egy 8-10 fös fánál, de ha a fa több személyt tartalmaz, a kicsinyítés egy pontján, már nem láthat betüket, csak a "box"-ot. Probáljon postert készíteni és kinyomtatni, akkor az oldalak összeragasztgatása után a teljes fa látható.
meg lehetne azt oldalni, görgetéssel, belenagyítással. Jelenleg úgy 100 fő van a családfámon, az még simán megoldható lenne egy széles fával, meg némi tervezéssel. Ha valaki azt mondja, a dizájn kivitelezhetetlen, keresni kell egy másik dizájnert, aki kreatívabban használja az erőforrásokat meg a modern technikát.
Nyomtatni ragaszgatni nem akarok, azért csinálom digitálisan, hogy ez elkerülhető legyen.
A family member of mine who is also an administrator on my website recently downloaded a GEDCOM file of my website to his computer. He then installed the newest version of Family Tree Builder and imported the GEDCOM file into FTB. While he did this, FTB automatically synchronized itself with the website and uploaded the just downloaded version back to MyHeritage.
This caused problems with a number of the pictures on the website. The most prevalent problem was the following. For spouses of family members I offer their family crest as a picture attached to them. In some cases, the same family name appears three or more times. As I don't want to have multiple versions of the same photograph in my picture gallery, I had to manipulate these pictures a bit. The way I did it was to upload the picture multiple times so that it would appear both as a picture of each of these people and also as a personal photograph. I then manually deleted the picture again for each of them except one, and then tagged the other people to that picture. In this way, the picture appeared in the picture gallery only once, and yet, I get it as a personal picture attached to each record.
After uploading the GEDCOM into FTB, the website had changed. The personal picture had disappeared from all records except one (the original one), but instead, a copy of that picture was created and added to each person. Thus, I now had the same picture again multiple times in my picture gallery, and I didn't have the picture associated any longer as personal photograph with the records. It took me most of a day's work to fix the website again.
How do I prevent FTB from synchronizing with the MyHeritage website automatically?
Your pictures may be too big in size. If you upload modern digital photographs of 3 MBytes in size or more, MyHeritage may have difficulties handling those. I recommend that you resize/resample your pictures to below 1 MBytes. To this end, it usually suffices to reduce them in size to 1024 pixels for the larger of the two dimensions. Then My Heritage should be able to handle them without any difficulties.
