Who else think that many options which can indeed increase the chances of findind new relatives shoudnt be payed for, i mean, tihs all site should be all free, there was no need of upgraded acounts...why not give the same options for everyone for free?...is that all about the money?..theres thousands of people wishing having more space, more options to their pages but who unfortunately just cant upgrade their page to premium...i think this site is earning millions already with traffic, why put some in 1 box and others in another..its just unfair...for whatever reason that people cant upgrade, i think we all should deserve the same options...i have found relatives from smartmatches which is a great aplication but just cant contact them because i have to upgrade my acount, which i find pretty stupid...this site should be free for everyone, no limitations, no nothing, who else agrees?...comon myheritage site team, put the smartmatches for free for free users, premium users, to ALL users.
You are so right! If you are intending to join myheritage it says in Google that this site is absolutely free.......load of crap. It entices you to sign up and now that they have enough members we are now being restricted from adding anything except to edit births deaths ect. To add profile photos you have to upgrade, to add relatives you have to upgrade.
Well I am deleting everything and am going to look for another site.
Family Pages - the premier platform for family and community Websites is based on subscriptions. Basic plans are free. Premium plans require a subscription, billed annually. You can choose the plan that best fits your needs and upgrade at any time.
MyHeritage Research - our genealogy search engine, is free.
Given the current economic situation, and the fact that we have remained a free site for so long, we cannot continue to serve millions of users and have everyone using the site for free; something has got to pay back for all the developers, servers, databases, etc.
We must also maintain MyHeritage as a sustainable business so that you and our other users will be able to continue enjoying it for many more years.
The photos uploaded with FTB to show people in the tree is not showing in any albums at the family site.
In FTB I marked a person in a big photo. Is it the big photo there is uploadet to the family site?
Or is it a small cropped photo?
If I also upload the big photo to the family site, does it then fill up twice?
I have recipes, forums, links, guestbook, etc. checked in Settings -> Content, but the only things showing up in my Activities tab are Games and Articles and I can't find links to the others anywhere else either. Are the other activities not available to free users?
I was also confused with the change. The family site that I already used some of the activities still shown, but then my new family site (different family) didn't have any of the activities, such as articles and receipes. I also hope that the articles section comes back so I can use it on my new family tree as well, or atleast these links being able to be accessed from someplace else on the site.
I started my family tree online http://www.myheritage.com/site-16102071/czaplinski about 2 years ago, I have more then 1230 family members and 60 site members.Many of my site members were able to help me in building the tree by adding and additing information . Few days ago , trying different options, I accidently exported GEDCOM file and switched my family tree to one that only I can addit in FTB. I read, that I am able to import the GEDCOM file back online, but doing it I will loose all my pictures, and I dont want that to happen. Ther are about 1000 pictures and same amount people to tag, too many to do it manualy. I would like to go back to managing my family tree strictly online , like I have been doing it before. At this point I am affraid keep trying things on my own, so I won't loose everything I have worked so hard on. I would appreciate your help in this matter,
To go from the software to the websit without losing photos you can:
Publish your tree to your family site. If you want to continue working on the tree from your site, as opposed to from Family Tree Builder, then I can change the type of tree for you from a FTB tree to a WEB tree that is editable online for you and your members.
You are correct that exporting a Gedcom from Family Tree Builder and then reimporting the tree to your family site, will not include your photos.
