Make sure to stop using Family Tree Builder now. If you make a lot of changes online and then accidentally publish your tree from Family Tree Builder, it will overwrite anything you did online. And online changes can't be restored.
You might need to log out of the app and log back in now in order to see editing.
If you're a Family Tree Builder user, you still won't have the option to edit the tree online or in the app. Not to worry, it's coming very soon! The new version of Family Tree Builder is scheduled to become available in the first half of 2013 and it will have a preliminary version of sync, which will allow Site Managers to make edits online and in the app and then sync them to their FTB trees.
In the meantime, you'll continue to have a "read-only" version of the app.
If you edit your tree online and are unable to edit in the app after installing the new version, log out of the app and then log back in. This will fix the problem.
Until this afternoon, my website (http://www.myheritage.com/site-family-tree-129424911/cellier?familyTreeID=1) always displayed married women in the format 'married name (maiden name)'. Now suddenly, the maiden names are no longer shown. I checked under settings, and the settings of my site haven't changed. The display should still be the same as before. Can someone, please, tell me what happened?
I have found that sometimes(maybe after software update) you have to enter names in the small "NAME" tab, not enough to do it directly in the main page. Alternative you can also in the main page just add an "Space" after the name an "opps" it appears ion the name settings.
I use Family Tree Builder and have sometimes found that a very short name will not appear after I have entered it; entering a space can make it appear. Can't remember if it is only maiden names that have the problem.
I have opened a bug report this morning and I will ask our QA department to give this priority. We will have to investigate what caused this bug and that might take up some time. But thank you for reporting and I hope to be able to come back to you soon with a date for the launch of the fix.
This is from the Ancestory website my cousin sent me from the 1940 Census
Lewis Warner 47
Lilly Warner 42
Margaret Warner 20
Lewis Warner 15
Mary Jane Warner 14
Names are correct.
Here it is from My Heritage same census:
HouseholdRelation to head Name Age
Head Luris Warner 47
Wife Lilly Warner 42
Daughter Margaret Warner 20
Son Luwis Jr Warner 15
Daughter Mary James Warner 14
Daughter Lilly Warner 12
Aunt Katherine Conroy 72
Notice the misspellings of Lewis ( Luris and Luwis) and Mary Jane=James
I wonder if this is why I am having some difficulty in finding the correct information
the Search I used was resulted in 1 - 20 of 3,669 results
Search fo rName: Marion L. Butler
Residence: 1930, Wyoming
I told it to use exacts ot random names
On familysearch i got this: Marion Butler
event date: 1930
event place: Election District 10, Laramie, Wyoming
marital status: Widowed
estimated birth year: 1865
But I can not see that record over there cuz they have the 1930 census linked to Ancestory and that costs money
Thanks for checking...I had the same problem. I got a ton of results from my search, most of them not what I wanted despite doing an exact match search, and none of them being the person I was seeking. I know for a fact he is there because I have seen an image of the 1930 Laramie County Wyoming census where he is enumerated. So the fact that he is definitely there but has not been indexed by MyHeritage makes it difficult to trust any other negative search results I get. Are they really there? I'll need a subscription to Ancestry to find out, I guess.
MyHeritage should warn users if a database has not been fully indexed.
I agree; I used to be on Ancestry and got the census info for my ancestor Marion L. Butler and his family from the 1930 US census, Laramie County, Wyoming. When I search the 1930 census on MyHeritage, I get no results for my ancestor. Why would that be? There is no indication that the index is incomplete, so I am at a loss. Now I m suspicious of the results for other searches I do.
I am a new MyHeritage user so maybe I am doing the search wrong. I used both basic search and advanced search.
Great! I am anxious to hear what you find. Laramie County Wyoming federal census , page 289, sheet 2A, enumerated April 9, 1930, look for Walter Murphy; same household shows Marion Butler as a widowed boarder.
I understand that there are most likely a lot of people who appreciate the pink and blue display for the trees, but I cannot stand it......never could, never will. To have to look at it actually irritates me! I loved the "classic" display for a number of reasons, one of which being that it was more soothing to the nerves.
The people making the decisions about the changes to the site need to remember that not everyone has THEIR tastes. There are those of us who have very different preferences than theirs, and since we are Premium members paying their salaries, they need to make more than one "display" available. Maybe they found the classic display and navigation of the pages not to their liking, but considering that many of us paying customers DID like it, they need to reinstate it.... quickly.
I would hate to end my subscription to this site, especially after all the work I have put into it, but if the site continues to try to force unasked for changes down my throat, especially since they make me want to almost literally gag from their ugliness and insufficiency, I will have to end up taking my business elsewhere........and I KNOW I'm not alone in this. I've seen others who are also unhappy with the ugly new changes.
