According to what I see on your account, my colleague explained to you that you have two accounts with us registered with two different e-mail address.
Please, always make sure to log into the site with the e-mail address of the correct account in which your subscription is active. It is the e-mail that finishes with @gmail.com. (For privacy reasons, I will not disclosure the whole address here on the Forum, but I believe you know which one I am talking about)
Please, always log in with that e-mail.
You can also check the sync requests and settings of your Family Tree Builder, to be sure that your connected to the correct account and site. Click on the link below to learn how to do it:
I recently renewed contact with a family member, and updated her profile with information that included her e-mail address. But when I Invited her, I was prompted for her address. Further checking of Members revealed that their Member Profile addresses may not match their Contact addresses. That's a lack of coordination that surprised me.
This leads me to ask how the site checks a member's athority to make changes. When a person is Invited to become a Member, how does the site monitor their access and behavior?
Once a person accepts the membership invitation, they have to create their account on MyHeritage with their e-mail address and password. They thereafter have a basic account with us, and they are allowed also to edit their basic information, such as name, date of birth and country of residence.
Therefore, it might happen that what you see on the Site Members page is different than what you see on the profile that you created for the person on the tree. What you see on the Site Members page is what the members themselves edited in their account details.
So, for instance, if you have a person in your tree named John Edward Smith, and you invite him to become a member, if he signs up to the site as Johnny Eddy S., that is the way he will be displayed on the Site Members page. That is because we understand that each person invited has to have the right (and responsibility also) to manage their own accounts the way they want.
How do I sort the order of the displayed photos under the photo tab. It would be so much easier to work with them in alphabetical order so that I can make sure there are no duplicates and would also make tagging very much easier. Anyone know how I can do this please?
Min mors far kallas min morfar, min morfars far kallar jag min morfars far, men i mitt släktträd kallas han min farfars/morfars far, jag kallar honom min morfars/fars/far , men i mitt släktträd kallas han min farfars/morfars farfar/morfar, och så vidare.....
Detta hänger inte ihop över huvud taget, min farfar finns ju på min fars sida och inte på min mors, så.....
Tror det beror på att vi just har Morfar/farfar i svenskan istället för Grandfather som det heter i det engelska språket där man inte särskiljer på vems "gammelfar" det var. Visserligen vet ju programmet vem det är men antagligen så blir det besvärligt med översättningen då programmet troligen är anpassat för engelska i grunden. De skulle i så fall behöva göra en specialanpassning för de som väljer att köra det på svenska. På sätt och vis borde det ju vara en enkel sak att fixa med olika texter för respektive person och på de språk som inte särskiljer på det ha samma text på båda.
At the current version of Family Tree Builder, we added the description as "far-/mormor" or "far-/morfar".
Because the software is developed originally in English, as you rightfully suspected, the 'strings' for the formation of those relationships are different than in Swedish. And since there are very few languages that work with a different formation than it is done in English, it is always more complicated for us to completely redesign the software to meet the needs of a specific language that follows a different pattern.
By trying our best, we have currently came up with the solution presented above.
Make sure that your Family Tree Builder is updated, by downloading the most recent sub-version on the link the below:
After clicking begin export, I get a brief message that I will receive a message in my inbox when this is complete with a link. I have nothing...yesterday nor today. There is not evidence that it is working.
On the family site, when you are on the step 3 of the chart creation page, "Customize chart", you can delete your name and start typing where now appears your own name, the name of a person you would like to be the main person on the chart. By starting typing the name, a list of people will appear for you to choose the person on the tree.
One my family member from one family side made family tree. And one family member from second family side made family tree. And in my close family these trees are identical. Is it possible to connect these two trees?
This is not exactly the answer to your question, it is more about whether you would want to connect the trees at all!
In my case I have a large family tree for myself; and a separate one for my wife and her family.
And I WANT the trees to stay separate, otherwise, if I joined them, the tree would be much too big.
Separated, the trees are easier to follow, too.
So I have simply put myself, my parents, my wife and her parents, and our children and spouses and their children, our siblings and their spouses and children, INTO EACH TREE; so that someone looking at either tree can also see just our closest family
And I have chosen to record everyone else "below" us in MY tree; nephews and nieces and their wives and husbands and children, and our great-grandchildren when they come....all in MY tree.
Not that it matters which tree but I had to make a decision.
Jag använder FTB så detta kanske inte helt fungerar för dig men...
När det gäller Plats så är funktionen lite dålig då den kräver "rätt" format på platsnamnet och ordning på namnen. Jag vill gärna kunna exportera data till Excel och då kunna sortera på plats men det funkar inte med det format MH kräver. Jag skriver in platsen som "SWE, E-län, Kisa" osv men då fungerar inte kartfunktionen. Den fungerar dock i omvänd ordning men då fungerar inte Excel.
Du kanske kan skriva in platsens namn så att MH förstår den och skriva in mer information i källanvisningen för händelsen. Om du tar upp en person så har du fliken Fakta och sedan en knapp Händelsecitat där man kan skriva in uppgift om vilken källa man har till uppgiften och där även en ruta för lite anteckningar. Källan är den kyrkbok du hittade uppgiften i och dess sida. Så källan kan vara samma för flera uppgifter men sidan är per uppgift och då även anteckningen för denna. Då jag inte själv använder anteckningen så vet jag inte om den kommer ut vid en rapport och i så fall hur den ser ut.
I am looking for Parents and family of Marcella Jane Knight. She was born 2 November 1840 Schoolcraft, Michigan, United States. She was married to Chandler Soule Whittier and had three children Edin Whittier, Gancello Chandler Whittier,Henry C Whittier. I did find this census on family search that may link her to her parents, https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M4DK-KRZ
Curently we are experiencing a problem with the uploading of GEDCOMS directly to the onine family site. You are promised an email however this does not happen. This does not happen due to the GEDCOM not being uploaded.
We are working to resolve this and hopefully have this back up and working in the very near future.
Until the problem is fixed, there is a workaround for it. What you can do is download the Family Tree Builder (FTB) Software to your computer and then upload your GEDCOM file into the software. Once the GEDCOM is uploaded to the software you will then be able to sync(publish) the family tree to the online family site.
Should you not have the FTB Software then you will be able to simply click here and this will take you to the download page. Once you have downloaded the FTB software you will need to locate the file and click on this to activate the installation. (usually found in the 'downloads' folder of your Pc)
After you have the FTB software installed you will need to now follow the instructions in the below link to import your GEDCOM to the FTB software.
