Problem solved now. I tried publishing without photos from FTB & it uploaded very quickly as I noticed that waiting for a while with the photos it was progressing but slowly because of so many MB's. I guess I was being too impatient & not giving it enough time. Thank you for your time to offer assistance.
A virtual cemetery is available in Family Tree Builder to enable you to view all the photos, documents and video/audio files associated with deaths, burials and/or funerals.
When a person in your tree as deceased, check the Deceased box and they will automatically be added to the Virtual Cemetery.
You can choose to associate a photo or document with the Virtual Cemetery of a selected person. The Virtual Cemetery shows all the photos that have been assigned to the Virtual Cemetery, which are typically photos relating to deaths, funerals or tombstones.
To display the virtual cemetery:
Double-click on the Tombstone icon on a person’s card.
since i want that my relatives interact with our family tree, i've decided to not use ftb. is there any similar function to virtual cemetery (associate people to their graveyard pics) on the online tree builder?
Undrar hur man hittar mig på nätet. Eller ska man ha betalat först? Sen undrar jag om när man redigerar i sammanfattning, släktträd hantera träd. Redigera finland-roslagen, ska jag kryssa i alla rutorna? gör trädet offentligt, ja. men de andra, tillåta att ta hem filen, vad menas med det? Om du inte hinner svara så önskar jag dig en GOD JUL.
How do I enter 2 surnames for one individual? My second husband adopted my children and have his name but I don't want two surname entries for the same person. However, I want their biological father's tree connected to them.
De finns ett plus som man kan trycka på när man ska redigera. på en del personer finns inte detta plus. Varför då? Man kan inte trycka på den personen alls, händer inget. Som iett fall där jag nu måste få bort en okänd som jag skrev fel på. Som du svarade en annan medlem igår att man måste få bort ganska många under denna okända. Om då flera saknar pluset, ja då funkar ingenting. Eller måste man ha betalat avgift för att kunnaredigera ordentligt? Hoppas ni9 fixar detta snarast, jag kommer ingen vart just nu.
I assume you are using the online family tree editor (rather than our family tree software Family Tree Builder).
The online family tree editor has a drawback which is, if a genealogy card (that is what the square is called) is connected to other genealogy cards, it cannot be removed without deleting all other connections until the person you wanted to delete has no one else connected to him or her.
Think of a chain. If you wanted to remove a link in the middle of the chain you would have to start removing links from one end of the chain in order to reach the link you originally intended to remove. You couldn't simply take out the link in the middle.
(We are going to release a new version of the online family tree editor in the near future with a better solution to this. We've already started working on it.)
I understand that in some cases removing many people in order to reach one mistake can be a lot of work. There is another solution which is to use our family tree software Family Tree Builder. The operation takes several steps and I recommend it only for people who have a good grasp of computers and importing/exporting files. If you feel you would like to learn how to move your tree into Family Tree Builder, let me know and I'll explain.
Hi, I made my account today so im a noob. Im trying to use romanian letters in names but i dont know how. I looked around the forum and see people talking about FTB but i have no idea what it is or how to use it. Also on the homepage they say there is a name translator feature but i can't find it! I tried switch language to romanian but names stay the same.
It's nice to have you as part of the MyHeritage.com family.
At MyHeritage.com there are a few ways to build your family tree.
You can build your tree using Family Tree Builder (FTB). Family Tree Builder is our free family tree software. If you'd like to give it a try, you can download it here: www.myheritage.com/family-tree-builder.
FTB has many great features that help you to build your tree, such as Smart Research which automatically searches in the top 100 genealogy-related web sites and databases on the net for names in the tree as you work on the tree. FTB has many great charts and reports for printing your family tree such as the Book Report and a special Maps feature that shows you where people in your tree lived and migrated during their lifetimes.
When you use FTB to build your tree, you can "Publish" it to your family site at MyHeritage.com so that your friends and family can view the tree. FTB trees are "read-only" on your family site - they cannot be edited online.
Alternatively, you can build your family tree directly online. I see that you have already started a family tree on your family site.
Family Trees that are started online can, of course, be edited online. The benefit of creating a tree that can be edited online is that your family members can help you with the tree. They can add photos and information to the tree that you might not have. And it doesn't matter how far away they might live from you because everything is online.
You can build your tree in Romanian both in Family Tree Builder and on your family site. As long as you are able to type Romanian characters with your keyboard there should be no problem to enter them into your tree.
If you started out working in English and want to change the language of your family site to Romanian, scroll down to the bottom right corner of any page on MyHeritage.com and use the flag icon to change your language. This will not affect the characters you enter in the tree, but it will change all the navigation on your site to Romanian.
If you entered data in your tree in English and want to change it to Romanian, you will have to make the changes manually. There is no online translation tool.
I believe what you read about is the Translation Wizard in FTB. In FTB it is possible to build your family tree in several languages at once. For example, you might wish to build your family tree in both Romanian and English so that relatives who don't speak Romanian will also enjoy the family tree. This is when using the Translation Wizard becomes relevant. It creates a report of all the names (family names and place names) in the tree, groups them and allows you to easily translate many entries at once.
If you have 25 entries for the name Vlad in your tree, the Translation Wizard allows you to translate Vlad once in order to change all 25 names in one go.
Due to the fact that your online tree is built without a distinction between languages in the data you enter, there is no need for this tool for online trees.
