I have been adding picture to my tree on the web mosstly through tagging but now wondering if I should be doing this on my computer in the software. My concern is that when I upload to the site again, the pictures will be effected.
Also, is there a way to bring what you hve put on the web down onto your computer into the software?
If you have your family tree on your family site on MyHeritage.com, please follow these steps to recover or transfer the file to Family Tree Builder:
First, open a browser and log into your Family Site on MyHeritage.com. Then, go into Family Tree > Manage Trees in your Family Site.
Click on the ‘export GEDCOM’ link on top of your list of family trees. This will save your family tree to your computer as a file with a .ged extension. Please note that you can only export a GEDCOM file from a family site if you are logged in as the site manager of that site.Once you have the file downloaded, and you have Family Tree Builder installed on your computer, you can double click on the GEDCOM file that you exported and it should open up automatically in Family Tree Builder.
DO NOTE: This should restore your entire project, except for the photos however! If you tag the pictures in Family Tree Builder however and then publish it, they will show.
But, if you have your tree in the computer updated with other informations and photos that have not already updated in the web site, and you dowload the entire gedcom into the treebuilder program, ¿what happens with the informations and photos updated in the program but not were already in the website?
I am also having trouble since upgrading. My book reports now only produce the Front Page, Contents & Direct Relations regardless of what I select. I have used this function many, many times prior to the upgrade without issue.
Enter everything in the program that you download, then publish from within the program.
What I've noticed form using the free account is the limit of people in the online tree is 250, now I have near 2000 in the downloaded program but only 250 got published to the site. and there are a few research features and merge data features that need a paid subscription. How these features work, I cannot say, I am using the free account myself, but I seem to get everything I need done, then again I'm still entering only one of my branches, maybe when I get everything entered the paid features may be neccessary.
If you've published from the program, you shouldn't have to create a treee on the website, I did boith and was wondering why my tree wasn't showing up. there was a drop down box that I was able to select the online made one and delete it, now the only tree, is the one I made from the program! I think,,,, the box is over on the right above your tree, since I only have the one now, I don't see the box.
If you are entering people while online, it checkes its online database and tries to match the person you just created, you might see a little green circle appear next to their name, if you clickt hat green circle it will bring you to a list of anyone else that has them in their tree! Also, while comparing, you will notice details over on the right of that screen and up top are the details you have and on the bottum will be the other persons, and on yours you can click the edit button and update that person. (copy their stats, with a paid account you can click on merge and have the program do it for you)
I just met a distant cousin by seeing that he had my first cousin in his tree :)
I don't know the advantages of using the research, so I can't comment on that.
could someone tell me if i can change the way a book report is displayed ,, it starts off with direct relations (generation of grandchrildren ) and then generation of chrildren ,,,, and gen of peers ,,,, i would like it to start with the main person .. is that possible ??
The Book Report modue which is part of the Family Tree Builderdos not give you the capability of modifying the report however, if you notice when you invoke the report the opening screen offers you an opportunity to upgrade to the full version of the report generator, which offers a very comprehensivegenerator with the ability to modify your reports to suit your needs and preferences. I am not sure if the demo version of the program integrates into Family Tree Builder but you can run it standalone against tour tree and see the power it has.
Information and the download links can be accessed at http://www.tcgr.bufton.org/index.html.
I am sure, but again you can download the demo version which works for 30 days without charge, I have been using the product for almost two months and am fully satisified with it, It allows for changing the order of any of the sections of the repor, creating custom pages where you may wish to do narration, select the individual to be used as the focus of the report, report on decendants only or ancestors only or naturally both. You can embed photo for front covers, personalize the reports for individuals and a host of other things. Give the demo a try and I am sure you will find it offers what you need.
i am useing ver 4.0 now the free one can i try the premium and see if i like it ??,, i use something befor and i open it up with microsoft word and got a nice and simple report but i dont remember now lol ,,,
I am not sure I understand what you are referring to when you say ver 4. I think you mean ver 4 of Family Tree Builder because The Complete Report Builder software I was describing is designated by year, i.e TCRB 2007, TCRB 2008, ir TCRB 2009.
So if you are referring to Family Tree Builder ver 4.0, the free one, the answer is no, MyHeritage offers the free version as their try before you buy offer..
TCBR gives you a 30 day full featured package which ceases to function after 30 days if you do not pay for the license key.
ohh ok i understand now sorry ,, i would be insterested in trying the one you are talking about ,, could you get me in the right direction please i will d/l it and see ,,, the one that i did a while back was in family tree builder and i did a ancester report it was simple and i even use microsoft word to edit ,,, anyway i would like to try the one you are talking about
