Hi Sarah, I visited 2 of your trees - the Stirrup and plus family and Agsy Web site and I have to say I am able to see actual photo when I click to the thumbnails in the photo tabon my laptop.
From my point of view there could be 2 reasons for behaviour you decribed - but maybe I didn't understand your description correctly:
1. You deleted some of your photos related to the profiles in your old laptop via Family Tree Builder (if you use it) and thn you synchronized your tree - this could affect the access to particular actual photos which could be removed from your online tree too.
2. There is some issue with the web browser or its components in your new laptop - which cause that you are able to see the thumbnails but displaying of actual photo are not working in your web browser. I think this could be the real reason.
Maybe you could try to use different web browser, if you have another one installed with your notebook.
A stupid question from someone just starting out doing some family research:
I am wondering if there is a formal definition of being "directly related"? For example, am I directly related to someone if I trace back six generations on the paternal side, but in the 7th generation flip to the maternal side? Clearly I am blood related and the great x7 grandson of this couple, but can I still say that I have directly related if they are the parents of my great x 6 grandmother as opposed to grandfather?? I don't know if paternal versus maternal connections make the difference.
I would like to make a tree for my side, is it possible to do that on the same account? I want to be able to print each out, so I can take them to the family reunions, and I don't need generations of my side shown.
Sorry to see you go. You've been a great help to alot of us on MH with your answers to solve problems. So, in a way, it wasn't wasted time. I hope you find a system that works better for your massive tree. I just hope it's not what will happen to the rest of us when we get as many people on our own trees as you have. Good luck!
How do I remove my daughters father as my husband on my family tree?
I've never been, nor will I ever be married to him but yet it say we are married?
I even has his familyname which I also never had.
This kind of pisses me off.
I just want to add how you can change the last name of your daughter’s father. Go to his profile in your tree and click “edit” and there change his last name. You also want to change his last name in his profile by clicking on “view profile” in the column to the left, “edit profile” and fill in the right name.
Does anybody know if there is a easy way to create new relatives without connections, and move them about in a mindmap kind of way, to figure out the connections. preferably in MyHeritage but at least in a GEDCOM exportprogram
If you are working through FTB, I know you have to delete by right clicking on the photo and hitting delete. Also, you have to go to the family photo listing and delete it there. Hopefully, that will remove the picture from you site, but maybe not. There may be still another step, which I have not discovered yet. I say this because I copied a couple of pictures to my site that were corrupted. I did the two steps above, but still get an error message everytime I sinc and exit the site. It warns me I have two corrupted pictures which were not valid to sinc, and everytime I have to close that box before the site will finish with the sinc! VERY IRRITATING! Good luck.
