Yes. I can see that you are using the site to edit. In the site it is possible to associate a photo with an event by entering a person's profile > edit profile > all my facts > you will see that for each fact that you have you can add a photo.
As you created your tree in the Family Tree Builder you will need to make all changes in the tree in the program as well, and not in the online site. If you would like me to convert your tree into a Web tree, that can be edited directly online, please let me know.
If you would like to continue working in the Family Tree Builder, please download the program:
And go to File > Restore project > Restore from online family site to restore your tree into the program.
A few relatives and I want to work together on an editable tree online. My plan was periodically to download the gedcom and all the images into Family Tree Builder (FTB) on my computer as a backup. Then, if the online tree gets screwed up somehow, we thought I could reload the tree from the local FTB copy. However, publishing the tree from FTB creates a tree with the photos all tagged but the tree and the photos are not editable. On the other hand, when I follow the guide to import the tree from a gedcom (exported from FTB), the people in the tree are no longer associated with the photos. All the work we have done to tag people in photos is lost in the reloaded editable tree. We are hopeful there is a way around this, but we can't seem to find it. If there is no way around this, I am going to have to ask for my subscription fee back. It's just too risky to do all that work associating and identifying people in photos only to have it all lost if the online tree gets messed up somehow.
Please tell us there is a way to create an editable online tree with editable tagged photos from an FTB tree with tagged photos. it's such an obviously needed capability; I just can't believe it doesn't exist. Thanks in advance for any guidance and suggestions.
I have had exactly the same experience, and also feel frustated that there appears to be no way to do this. I was interested to know what myHeritage's response was. It would seem obvious that the myHeritage site should not allow users to tag photos in one environment and not be able to export/import that information to the other environment.
Please let me know what the reponse was, and if there is a way to do this. Feel free to email directly to joewalker at hotmail dot com. We can't be the only two people in the world who are frustrated by this.
We currently do not have the option to merge two trees online, but our developers are working very hard on a new version of Family Tree Builder, which will offer a full synchronization between the program and the site. It should be released this year, so stay tuned- it's worth waiting for!
I thought this was a standard function so I deleted an husband, exported him with his family,
children and ancestors from my familyprogram. But when I've imported his part all I got was
two different trees.
I downloaded a gedcom into my family tree builder which had hundreds of new names but also hundreds of identical names already in on my existing tree and also some persons who were identical but spelt their surname different 450 years ago. I was hoping that they two trees would merge, highlighting duplicates and / or potential ''this person is already in the tree'' type thing which I could then edit, cutting the numnber of duplicates down but this is not the case. The thought of labouriously deleting hundreds of duplicates is off-putting. Can I delete or export the previously imported Gedcom file ?
I am, by now, used to getting generic answers to questions posed which do not address the actual question I asked.
So, I will try again.
Can I export or delete the Gedcom I downloaded into my tree ?
Your answer refers to the FTB duplicate identifier. This is almost useless. All it does is ''what it says on the tin''. It identifies duplicates !! Then....nothing, you cannot use it to delete/merge anything. You still have to revert to manually removing one of the duplicates. I have hundreds, yes HUNDREDS, of duplicates.
If my only recourse to remove all these duplicates is to re-install the old tree from a back up used prior to the gedcom being downloaded into the tree how do I do that? via FTB? How do I identify which 'old' tree to download and replace my current tree with the duplicates therein.
I'm sorry if you feel my answer was not relevant to you.
If merging created many duplicates, I think the best option for you would be to go back to an older version of the project before merging it with another one. You should have it saved on your computer if you backed up your file before merging the trees, so you can restore it and work on that file without the duplicates. It should be on your computer in My Documents> MyHeritage, in your project's folder in Backup.
Please let me know if you need further assistance with this.
I don't have an update yet about the sync between the program and the site. Its estimated release date is in the end of this year.
If you need to merge two trees now, you can do this in Family Tree Builder. In order to merge trees they will have to be exported to GEDCOM file format. You can read about how to merge two trees on Family Tree Builderhere.
Merging similar trees will not automatically merge people who appear in both trees. This means that you will need to detect duplicates manually. This can be done by sorting alphabetically, and then deleting them. Another option is using the “check for duplicates tool” by going to Tools > Check for duplicates.
If you backed up your file before merging the trees, you can restore it and work on that file without the duplicates.
I may not be understanding this. I am trying to merge my GEDCOM with my wife's GEDCOM to create a joint tree. When done, I seem to get her and me with either her tree or my tree. How do I get both trees? I think I am following directions but I guess not.
I've uploaded a video I've encoded to mp4 and looks nice and clear.
However after publishing it playback on my family site is not as good. The transitions get a lot of blocking in it. A screenshot comparison of the source video and the online video can be viewed here http://i.imgur.com/IfLU1.jpg
Does MyHeritage 'reencode' the video that is uploaded ?
Firstly, I'm paying for extra space so there should at least be an option to not have video file size reduced.
Transcoding video for members utilising a free account I totally accept, but not those paying for their space.
Also, there is a 50MB size limit for videos, both mine were 25MB each or less, if I recall correctly. Why resize these ? Perhaps just do those that exceed the 50MB allowance.
I hope the option is considered to leave content untouched. Transcoding already heavily compressed video is never the ideal solution which is why I always start with the post edit DV output when creating videos for upload.
