Thanks for the info, I just got a mail from the MH-team telling me about the problem and that, in due time, they will try to fix it. Seems they have a lot of bugs to fix first. Good I live in Spain where Manaña is a well known word. In fact it´s an Arabic expression and doesn´t mean "tomorrow" but "sometime in the future"!!!
My question is this, how can I add the couple that raised my grandma? They did not adopt her, my great-grandpa Brandle asked a couple to please raise his daughter and they did. I would love to add them since we all consider them as family, but I do not see any way to add another set of parents, adopted or otherwise.
My grandma was born in the late 1800's and from what I have found in researching this, there were many children that when one parent had died and the other was near death/dying, the remaining parent would find a new home for their child.
Also would be nice to know how to add step-siblings.
I will try to export to GEDCOM them import into the tree I want to keep. All of the trees are of the same families but their is different information in some of them which I don't want to lose. I guess If I duplicate records I can always go back and delete them. Thanks for your advice.
Just to echo that last post - I also have duplicates entered into my Tree's from different Smartmatching using FTB and the online system. So for example - I have a great, great grandfather who's brothers are duplicated and each duplicate has different versions of their own tree.
I realise you can use the "Find Duplicates" and export this to Excel - but the time it would take me to manually attach/detach and delete would take far too long.
If only the MyHeritage Team could develop a smart tool to seek out duplicates, ask you to confirm if you believe the matches it finds are duplicates, and then merge the tree's automatically. That would be a real feature and honestly I'm really surprised it hasn't already been developed.
Any sign of this being on the longer term roadmap for the MyHeritage and/or FTB?
To send you familiy tree to your relation you will need to carry out the following instructions.
In Family Tree Builder, go to File > Manage Projects. Select your project and click "Export Package". This conveniently prepares a single zip file containing your family tree plus all its related photos (very useful for backing up). Save it in a location on your computer that you will remember.
If the zip file is small (less than 2MB) you can just email it to them directly.
Otherwise, if it is a large file, please go to www.wetransfer.com. Just and click on the ' ' symbol in the upper left-hand side of the window. Find the zip file you just created and upload it.
If you have a family tree with over 1000 names and over 500 families this family tree will be one tree within one family site. The families will be represented within the family tree via their specific branch according to their relationships.
With regards to your distant cousin assisting you with editing. I would advise you to sync the family tree to your online family web site and then enter into your family site and invite her to be a member of your site first of all.
Upon her approval of membership you will then be able to enter your site members list and click on the more option to the right of her name and then promote her to "Site Manager". This will give her similar rights to you with regards to editing the family tree. You may also need to edit your family tree settings in order to allow you and site managers only to edit the family tree.
