I received this notice (subject) after updating my firefox browser about a month ago. I let it slide thinking it would be resolved in do time, however it seems it still is not compatible. my question, is there a solution in the works ?
I have been trying and trying to change a photo in my family tree. I have a rather blurry old photo and I want to replace it with a new one that I have uploaded. I have tagged the person. I have been trying for two days to get rid of the old blurry photo and replace it with a nice new one.
I do alot of merging so my favorite method of updating my tree is to reload the new gedcom. This works beautifully on tribal pages where the new new gedcom overwrites the old and the pictures reattach automatically - the same happens on genes reunited. Doe it also work this way here? Will it retain the 1000 smart matches I have already processed? Or will an upload start them all over again?
Also why does Smart matches give me matches on all of an individual's same sex siblings but not on the actual individual in the tree. I have to reject all those matches while I can see the other tree has the correct individual in it. This was my big problem with the old GenCircles and why I stopped using it.
Corollary - I have multiple individuals with exactly the same name but definately different dates - some times hundreds. When finding smart matches, why doesn't the engine list the closest match first and, if that is confirmed for a given tree, ignore the others of that name in that tree as a possible match
If you edit changes in your family tree in the Family Tree Builder and re-publish your tree to your site to synchronize your online tree, you will not get Smart Matches you have already approved / ignored.
Please see the following helpful FAQ on the Smart Matches quality:
I have about 7500 people in the family tree, and different branches are posting reunions and birthdays. But the expectation is that only close relatives will attend. But, it appears that the event announcements go out to all site members, which are from different branches of the tree. What is the best way to limit the events?
I cannot find a way to do it. When I searched forums I found one topic but it did not make sense. What is my profile tab? Why can't I just get the basic editing commands on the photos tab? What about moving photos to different albums and deleting albums?
I had the same problem originally. For reasons unclear to me, you cannot delete pictures in photo mode. However, you can do it easily using a simple trick. "Identify" (tag) a person (e.g. yourself) on the picture that you wish to delete. This then associates the picture with your record. Then go into tree mode, where you can look at all of the pictures that are associated with your record ... and there you can delete the picture easily. When you do, the picture also disappears from the photo album ... a round-about way for sure (!), but one that works.
I built up a family tree for my own family. I recently started to build up my wifes family tree. I would like it to be kept completely separate from my own family tree. In fact I am the only common member. I would like that the new members only see the new tree and the old members only see the old family tree, so that they indeed are kept completely separate. Even the language is different.
I tried to publish but noted that new family tree appears on the same web site for everybody to see, or am I mistaken? Is it just the webmaster who can see it?
I also tried to found a new web site to publish to but as MyHeritage uses my email address as an user name, so that does not seem to be possible. Changing the email address on and forth is possible but a messy method.
I can see that you have managed to create two family sites from your account: Familjen Bäckström and Peltoniemen suku Web Site. If you want to create another site, just go to My Sites and Create a new family site.
After creating the tree in Family Tree Builder, you must make sure that it is published to the correct site.
Please take a look at the following FAQ, I think that it will assist you:
Firstly, You can indeed add divorce events with dates into the online tree. First add a husband and wife, and their marriage event and date. Then add a fact to one of them, and choose divorce. Add the divorce date. You can then add a new marriage to either of the partners (by adding a new marriage event), and then creating a new spouse.
Once you have multiple spouses, when you add children, you will see the option to change the other parent. For example let's say that you add two husbands for Mary, one that she married and then divorced, and then one that she married afterwards. When you click on Mary and choose to add a child, in that screen, you will see the option to choose either spouse #1 or spouse #2 as the father of this child.
Regarding partners, you are correct that there is currently a bug where same sex partners are referred to as husband/wife in the profile page. We are aware of this bug, and are working on fixing it.
In addition, the collaboration with the Family Tree Builder is less recommended, because you need to be careful not to overwrite each other's published version of the tree by mistake.
For example, if one manager will publish his edited tree to the site, and the other has already published changes in the same tree before - the second person's changes will be overwritten.
Therefore, the best way to collaborate is by editing your family tree online; Please see the following FAQs on the different types of family trees that you can have, and how to transform your Family Tree Builder tree to a tree that you can edit online:
I was at a relative's over the weekend and wanted to add some information to the tree, but was not allowed to do it. I am the site administrator. I created the tree in the Family Tree Builder, Premium version, and published it to my site.
Is there any way to edit the information when logging in from a different computer? It would have been much easier to put in the information at her house instead of copying every on paper and then putting it in later at home.
Within your Sullivan/Cassidy Web Site on MyHeritage.com, there are two family trees:
1) Cassidy-Sullivan families - GEDCOM tree.
2) James Parker Tree - Web tree.
Both of those trees are editable online, on your family site.
In order to enter your family site, from any other computer, please go to http://www.myheritage.com/ > insert your correct log in details > make sure, that you are logged in under your site administrator account, by checking that your name is shown on the right upper corner of the page (next to My Inbox icon).
However, if you have created and published your family tree from the Family Tree Builder program on your computer, the tree is not editable online, in your website.
(You have to edit and re-publish it each time)
In that case, the most convenient way to be able work on your family tree project from other computers is to convert your family tree project to an online tree project.
If you would like to do so, please let me now, and direct me to the specific tree and site, where this tree is placed.
Please note, that you can add source citations , notes, place of burial and other different facts to all the individauls in your Sullivan/Cassidy GEDCOM tree, by entering your family site > family tree > find the individual in your family tree > view profile > edit profile (under the profile photo) > you can add any source citations or facts, by clcikcing on the "source citations"/"all facts" link > add another fact > choose the preffered fact category, or just add your own fact type.
