Since I'm using the program in swedish maybe it is called something else so bare with me.
It is a relativly new feature so maybe you need to upgrade to latest version of FTB.
Under Tools in menu bar where you also can check for updates you find it: Check for Douplicates or something like that. It finds possible douplicates and you can edit left and/or right person, not merge them. You can save it to a file.
I have some issues with som parts in the WEB site. It would be great to know if/when these issues are planed to be solved.
Research does only work with Internet Explorer. When will it work on other Browsers (Firefox)?
When will the family toolbar work in the latest Firefox? I upgraded my Firefox just to see that Family toolbar stoped working. Had to dig up my Internet Explorer to get the toolbar for log in since I had forgotten my password.
För our MAC friends: When will they be able to use FTB?
I believe that there should be a public list of the "bug fixes" that are planned (or not!!!) to be released and what is the release date.
Such a list will minimize "new" repetitius suggestions.
Also a "smart" list of suggestions where users like you and I (and others of course) can vote for the suggestions - a tool like this can help the developers in setting the order of new developments / bug fixes.
thank you for your inquiry. We are very sorry for the late response. Could you please explain us where did you import your tree (FTB right?) and if FTB could you please tell us what language you used during the import?
If it is not a problem please also tell us from where did you export GEDCOM. It will help us to find the bug and fix it for you.
Thanks - sorry for the late response. Can you please send us the gedcom, and provide us an example of an individual that you have the problem with? Please send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org - we will investigate the problem. Thank you.
If your file is mixed up in Family Tree Builder, you can look in My Documents> MyHeritage, in the Genes folder, in Backup, for a previous backup of the file before the mix-up. You can publish this version to your site.
If you would like to delete trees from your site, go to Family Tree> Manage Trees.
To merge two trees in Family Tree Builder, one of them will have to be exported to GEDCOM file format.
You can read about how to merge two trees on Family Tree Builder here. Please note that if the trees are similar, this will cause many duplicates in the merged tree.
Když jsou k dané osobě přiřazeny další dokumenty, např. oskenovaný výpis z matriky (je to fotografie), tak je zobrazitelná pouze tlačítkem "Fotky". Není ale nikde avizováno v informacích o této osobě, že tato osoba má asociovány nějaké další dokumenty. Stačil by pouze zobrazit někde jejich počet.
Ve výběrovém (levém) okně je chybné české třídění jmen. Např. příjmení začínající písmenem s diakritikou (Č, Š, atd.) jsou až na konci. Pokud je písmeno s diakritikou uvnitř příjmení, je zase třídění porušeno.
thank you for the message. We are aware of this problem. At the moment we can nothing to do with that. All special characters letters in Czech will be sorted at the end of the list. We are very sorry for the inconvinience.

I tried that (working in Family Tree Builder but I don't suppose that will make a difference to this) and it works. But won't it mess up the Smart Match system?? My problem is that I am happy with my display of
Given names -- Married name --(Maiden name)
But I have some ladies in my tree who have husbands with the same surname, and then the maiden name doesn't show. Say Mary Smith marries John Smith; in the tree it just shows Mary Smith. I want it to display Mary Smith (Smith) so that people reading the tree know her maiden name; and so that her details are displayed the same as everyone else's.
What I have tried is simply editing her married name to Smith (Smith). It displays just the way I want but won't the SmartMatch system then look for a lot of Smith (Smith) matches??!!
I don't think there are very many Smith(Smith) matches. I have some names where the surname is both for married name and maiden name and it doesn't show it like that(nor would I want it to). It looks strange to me. Anyway, it hasn't been a problem as smart matches go and even considering maiden names are often unknown.
But how come my sistsers name is said Gislason (born Gísladóttir). Her husband is Gislason. It is because his fathers first name was Gísli. My fathers name also was Gísli that is why my sister is Gisladóttir. Also after she got married.
I don't think the naming convention should be changed just because one counrty uses something different from the majority of countries. I always thought that the majority ruled, NOT the minority or am I missing something here?
If you use Family Tree Builder there is a setting how names are shown. On Menu bar select tools and then Configuration. You will get a window where you can select the presentation of names. You can select between Maiden name, Name as married, Name as married[Maiden name] and Maiden name [Name as married]. This only set how names are viewed in your tree. Probably there is a similar setting if you're not using FTB.
I believe all Scandinavia where using patronymicon naming convention (faders given name son or daughter in resp. language) before 1900. And in Noble familys even Matronymicon if the mothers family name was better.
