The issue of missinginformation in your reports could be a language issue- if you add information to your tree in 2 languages, you must make sure to add all the info in both languages, otherwise it will not appear in reports. You can check what languages are in your tree if you open your project in Family Tree Builder and go to Tools> Languages. Make sure to set the same display and primary data language, even if you have a secondary data language. If you right-click on that window and go to Manage data languages, you will see how much data is in each language. You can choose to copy all info to one language or add all of it in both languages.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
What happened to the reports showing birth/deaths? All I see now is relationship, ancestor/descendant, statistics and place reports. I sure hope this hasnt disappeared with all these new "improvements".
Seems like its 1 step forward, 5 steps backwards with this website.
Thanks, however I was not talking about statistics but the relationship between two individual people, most often myself and one other.
Because I use Family Tree Builder I can see the relationship (In SmartMatch mode) between the person who is the main person in the Smart Match and myself by right clicking in the section, at the top of the SmartMatches, for my own family tree, then, left click in the drop down box, 'Relation to Athol Geoffrey Stewart'.
But the one that yesterday was still available in the WEB site was helpful because it showed the people in boxes, joined by lines with such information as 'son of'; it made it simpler to visualize difficult relationships like those in my tree.
Why has it gone?? Is it because of 'improvements' to MyHeritage?
Is it because I am approaching the dreaded five thousand people in my tree?
This function will be specially missed by MyHeritage members who do not use FBT.
ancestry.com will allow you to upload your tree for free. You can't do any research, but you can use their relationship tool to figure relationships among people in your tree. It's not an ideal situation, but it's the only thing I've found available for very large trees.
I'll keep that in mind; my wife has a subscription to ancestry so I should be able to do that and use their research as well at no extra cost.
I've been thinking of doing that anyway if ever I get my family tree nearer to being complete; I have the impression ancestry is particularly good for searching out documents. MyHeritage is improving but still little help to those outside the USA; one ought to be able to set a filter at the beginning of a search to include, say, Australia only!

Jeg vil give dig generel information, så du bedre kan forstå vores redigeringsmuligheder.
Der er to metoder, du kan redigere dit stamtræ:
1) Direkte fra online website - Alt dit arbejde foregår online i familien site. Oplysningerne er ikke automatisk overført til din software (du kan overføre det manuelt). Den største fordel er, at andre medlemmer af webstedet kan redigere stamtræ så godt.
2) Brug af FamilyTreeBuilder software (der er installeret lokalt på din computer) - Al redigering og arbejdet udføres i softwaren (kun af dig). Du kan udgive oplysninger til online website og dele det med dine medlemmer af webstedet. Familien træ i stedet er skrivebeskyttet.
I øjeblikket dit stamtræ er af den anden type, og al redigering foregår i softwaren. Siden er opdateret ved at offentliggøre oplysninger fra softwaren.
Lad mig vide, hvis du vil have mig til at konvertere dit stamtræ til en online redigerbart version.
I will give you general information so that you will better understand our editing options.
There are two methods you can edit your family tree:
1) Directly from the online website - All your work is done online in the family site. The information is not automatically transferred to your software (you can transfer it manually). The biggest advantage is that other site members can edit the family tree as well.
2) Using the FamilyTreeBuilder software (that is installed locally on your computer)- All editing and work is done in the software (only by you). You can publish the information to the online website and share it with your site members. The family tree in the site is read-only.
Currently your family tree is of the second type and all editing is done in the software. The site is updated by publishing the information from the software.
Let me know if you want me to convert your family tree to an online editable version.
Jeg bestilte et abbonement for 180 dager for utforskning i usa og Canada,men jeg sluttførte ikke bestillingen,jeg skreiv hvilken bank og by jeg er fra ,men det som kom fram var noe helt annet,jeg ønsker foreløbig ikke å ha dette,hva betyr 5300 kreditt???
Krediter, eller poäng som det även kallas, ger dig möjlighet att betala för att se enskilda poster i SuperSearch. Du kan använda poäng för att betala per förbrukning om ett årabonnemang är bortom din budget.
I tried to save some datas of one of my ancestors, when the program crashed. Now when I try to open the program, an error messege appears with "runtime error". I used an older free version of FTB (I think 5) for Windows. Is there any possibility to get back my datas? I'm very sad, because I had more than 1000 names, but I never had a "security save of the project". Please help me, if there is any possibility.
Sorry to hear about your mishap. Don't you do any backups at all? Didn't you set up your computer to create automatic backups for you? If you did, you might be able to roll your computer back to an earlier time when FTB was still running correctly. Before you do, you should save any important files that you created since the time that you are rolling back to onto a USB stick, because otherwise you are going to lose those.
I dug a little further. At some point in time you must have published your tree to MyHeritage, because it is online. You find it at the address: http://www.myheritage.com/site-family-tree-153007692/hajdu
I cannot see when you published your tree to the web the last time. Thus, this may be an older version of your tree, but at least, this version is available and intact.
There are two ways how you can proceed from here. You can either save your tree back into a GEDCOM file from the MyHeritage site and then import it back into FTB from there, or you can ask the MyHeritage staff to make your published tree interactive, and then you can continue building on that tree directly on the web.
This may be less than perfect, but it is most certainly better than to restart from scratch.
I am new to MyHeritage whereby I can now use smart matches. However, before I do this I have looked for information as to what actually happens when you confirm a match but have not been very successful. I am not that great in genealogy and being quite old the brain cells are now giving me problems LOL. Although I’ve got quite a few matches I am loath to use it until I know exactly what happens to my family tree and to the people tree who have matches with mine?Can someone advise me of all the effects this may have and anything else that may be helpful to a novice. Many thanks
