What's odd to me is that there are pages and pages for Profiles of family members. However, they're just photos and names and a few email addresses pasted on those pages. Names and photos are nothing but meaningless to anyone who gets interested in them. I made use of those Profile pages to honor my loving parents, my sibblings, my loving husband and myself, with little stories about their lives, although they are all gone from this life, their having joined the angelic chorus. Fast forward, MyHeritage is now getting family members to get interested in gravesites. Is it to be supposed that we can just jump from the infilled profiles straight to the gravesite? For sure, those family members are not in the least interested in filling out their profiles. There are a few who have done their profiles, but the majority si not doing anything or is not interested in the least. You can bring the horse to the well but it imay not drink, useless effort on your part. Thanks for listening, MyHeritage.
I'm building my family tree around lots of old images, and have really enjoyed seing how the profile pictures are showing up on the tree, when I add more pictures.
But the last two days it does not :-( I have added new pictures and tagged about 10 people who did not previously have a picture, and the pictures are listed on their cards, but it is not assigned as their profile picture. Is anyone else having the same problem?
I have tried re-tagging them several times, I have tried assigning a new profile picture, but the little wheel just spins and is not "returning" any pictures for me to choose from.
On my own profile I have previously uploaded and tagged 29 pictures, so to trouble shoot I tried the option of correcting tagging-mistakes, but it does not find any pictures...:-P
I sent an email to MyHeritage support about this matter too, hopefully they'll get back to me quickly... but I'd love to know if anyone else is having this problem (thus it is a problem with the site) or if it is just me (thus it is a problem with my account only) :-P
I have a member of my site who has changed email addresses and is not computer savvy enough to update their email address on the myheritage family tree online site and also no longer have access to their old email address. As site manager, how can I do this for them?
can anyone please tell me how to research irish relatives everytime i try i can only find either results from usa or uk but nothing for ireland some of my relatives are born around the 1950s but i cant find any at all i have the same problem with scottish relatives
thanks for your reply but i have done that on numorous times the irish flag appears i type in who where what im looking for and i either get no results at all or only results from england i have even typed in the exact place names for example sligo ireland but the results come up as england every time so what am i doing wrong
When you arrive on the page with the Irish flag, you can also use the right side menu to browse through the collections available at the moment for Ireland.
When you arrive to the results page, with all the results, you can also click on the "Summary" tab on the top right corner of the results list, so you can see the collections in which you have results for that person.
hi thank you for that advice i have tryed it again and i see what you mean now my problem is the irish people im trying to trace backwards are all born around 1950-1960 i see from the left hand coloum the headings are
passengers arriving in new york from ireland 1846- 1851
irish mariages 1619-1848
1851 dublin city census
irish deaths 1864-1870
does this mean that there are now more recent records available if this is the case how can i start my search please
Those are the collections and respective dates of records that we offer at the moment.
However, since we are adding more and more records on a bi-weekly basis from different parts of the world and from different periods of History, I'd suggest you to constantly visit that page in order to see if other collections have been added that might suit your current search.
For every census record match I also look at the image; I have noticed several transcription errors - not just ones by the census enumerators - you have to live with those! - but I have found errors in the computer transcriptions. These can be corrected, but how?
For instance, a name is written "Euphemia", but the transcriber typed in "Uphemia".
In another case I found the records for my great-grandmother, which were transcribed OK, but the four lines immediately above are for my grandparents household - and I am not able to "find" them at all, no matter how I organize the search.
It would be very nice to see _all_ of the transcribed data for a given image; it would also be nice to be able to direct the search to a specific page and line of the census form. Then I can let the computer generate the citation.
Plus it would be great to be able to submit corrections to the transcriptions in some "official" fashion. There is always some transcription error; so we need a way to submit corrections!
For example: 1940 United States Federal Census - Ella E Kelly
Rootperson and spouses are not showing up in the correct order. I normally have myself as the rootperson since I am the one that has done the majority of the work, but each and everytime, my 3rd cousins wife shows as the rootperson I do not want this, I want myself. Also my great grandparents, my great grandmother is not showing as my great grandfathers first wife, she is always showing as his second spouse. How can this be changed online?
