Hi, I am just wondering; if you go into a family tree and it shows a member as being "private" is there any way the public can obtain additional info on that "private" person? Can the public 'pretend' to be part of that family to gain access? I am just concerned about my privacy (I'm not trying to access anybody's personal information). Thank you.
We are very careful about what information is seen by people who are not invited members of your family site. On one hand it is a good idea to let people you don't know find your family site and have limited access because it increases your chances of finding information you never knew about. On the other hand, you want to be responsible with the names of people in your family tree.
By default at MyHeritage.com your family site is protected with privacy settings that allow limited information about people in the tree to be shown while protecting the privacy of living individuals in the tree. That's why you see "<private> Last Name" whenever you view someone in the tree if you're not logged in to your family site.
I uploaded my family tree in .gedcom file. After uploading I realized that I didn't include all family members, but by then I had already updated some, so thought of uploading larger set the second time.
It seems that myheritage.com things it's two different individuals on two different trees. I am not using premium version of myheritage.com but wanted to know if smartmatching should have identified the two individuals on the two different .gedcom files when they actually are the same. I have the duplicates currently to the tune of 80 individuals.
Please note that each time that you edit your tree, this will cause the smartmatches to be recalculated for your site. This may take time, as there is a long list of sites that are waiting for matches. For non-paying users, there is a delay of around three weeks. This means that you should get some matches in a few weeks, if you do not edit it again until then!
Paying users are given priority for smartmatching their trees.
When you upgrade to Premium, you will also receive priority support, as well as: up to 2,500 people in your family tree online, extended storage for family photos, videos, and documents online, access to added features in Family Tree Builder; Smart Research, Smart Match Merge, All-in-one chart, and Publishing of videos, audios, and documents.
Please log into your site, and go into Settings > Site Account to see the various plans and their prices.
While I understand that non-paying users will have to wait for at least 3 weeks after the last update, it is not clear how much will the premium users wait before they get the priority and get their Smart match updated. I have not seen any example use of Smartmatches and therefore I am not sure whether to go for premium upgrade or not.
I imported a GEDCOM and opened in Builder. I then decided to delete via the Manage Tree options in Builder and it did delete. But it is still showing up on the website. I have tried publishing after I deleted but it still shows up. I did this about a hour ago.
How do I remove family the tree named 497605 from my family website and I do not want it to appear with my other family trees? It no longer shows up in Builder but does not update the website.
I found the answer on another post. I am posting below.
"Actuly that option has been addressed you can find it only one way. It took me quit a while to find it.
From the home page select the (family Tree) tab. when it comes up you will see 2 menu lines 1 with all the tabs and right under it the 2nd menu line. look at the right side of it and select (Manage Trees) select that and when that page comes up you will see a box listing your (Trees) and a (Delete) option on the far right."
