Lately I've experienced that not all of the branches of the familytrees are shown on the screen. I.e. if I'm working at my fathers family my mothers family will not be there unless i choose her, then it will be down loaded. Why is it so? I'm using MyHeritage. Will it help if I upgrades it or is it the Mac I'm using which is not strong enough?
When your tree gets to be a certain size, by design you will only see a part of your tree at at given time,to make processing easier and faster for your computer. The other people in your tree are showed in "pruned" branches (the very small pink and blue icons that you can see above certain individuals).You can click on these icons to show the "hidden" parts of the trees.
It is a shame that many sites have so restrictive policies on the size of a person genealogy.
My genealogy file as a GEDCOM FILE is 540MB and as a Zipped gedcom...99.2MB.
I started my research almost 2 decades ago, and lately I have been concentrating for the last 5 years on accumulating famous people connections buy building a MOST complete family file on the WHO IS who in this WORLD.
But it seems I am running out the places where I can put my DATA. I have exceeded, the limitations of every genealogy web site , i know of. I just got a wealth of genealogy books listing the genealogy of the MOST famous and influenctial people in AMERICA. All it is a matter of is connecting the dots and publishing their pictures along with their biographies.
With a large connected and interlinked database a person can easily calculate relationships.
BUT and a huge BUT is where to put this up coming MONSTER..
I have over 2000 well known famous personalities in the USA and over 50,000 throughout the rest of the world.
Add in all the pictures, and biographies and my total geneaolgy would exceed 2TB...:
The software I use is from LEGACY and sooner or later I will be exceeding it's limitation as well.
The D-base software I am looking for really should have a limitless capability. That way I would never have to worry that my fun will end in the near future. Then I am allowed to use all it's features including Photo and biographic capabilities.
As a Premium Plus member I feel that any query I have should be responded to in some way within forty eight hours. A previous query I had took seven days before it was responded to. My current query has been four days.
I have somehow got two entries of the same person.
She has a current partner and children who show up in detail under her mother's current partner.... But when I try to enter her father as her biological father and attach him to her mother as ANOTHER PARTNER she comes up as a DUPLICATE ENTRY. How do I enter her father and NOT duplicate her details?
