I just read your responses below and now see that I misunderstood the "places of residence" map. I had thought that it was actually based on what I entered in the "Contact" section of FTB. Now I see it is based on what the site members put as their location.
Sorry for the misunderstanding and thanks for your help.
thanks for getting back to me. I think I may have resolved the issue of places of birth & death - the problem seems to be that several of my family were born in Eire and this is not showing up on the stats - Eire is notpart of the UK!
I still don't see where to add residence information however - none of the drop-down facts boxes seem suitable - yet when I click on info for my husband on the home page, for example, his place of residence is shown, incorrectly, as the UK (he lives in Spain) and I can't see anywhere to edit this information!
I have no problem with my place of residence - it's other family members that I wish to add so that their place of residence shows in the stats.
I now see that there is the option to add addresses on the site members page for some, but not all, of the members, and in the case of my husband I can find no way to edit his address so that it is shown correctly!
Also - I still don't see how to enter places of residence for family members that are not site members (I do not have email addresses for everyone).
Regarding the family members born in Eire, they include my parents John Smith and Mary (Maisie) Heaney, his three siblings, her nine siblings and my grandparents various others
Let me explain to you the way that the residence information works:
When you (the site manager) are logged into your own site, you can go to Home > Site Members and there you will see the option to enter an address (or edit it under 'more') for site members that have not yet ever visited your site. Next to your own name, under 'more', you will also be able to edit your own address.
You cannot edit the address of any of your site members that have already visited your site. They will have to edit their own address. They can do that by logging into their account, going to your site (that they are a member of) and going to Home > Site Members. Next to their own name, they will see the option under 'more'.
Regarding the second issue, we are looking into it.
First question. I originally created a family tree for one part of my wife's family, got that going but in the learning curve of things I ended up creating 3 sites that show up in my "My Sites" 2 of which I made not visbale to people and renamed them with delete in front to not get confused. I would like to remove these from my site list. Can you help?
Second question I decided to open a subscription and made a family tree for part of my side of the family and I had thought that it would allow me to have 2 seperate entry points for the different families. What I would like to do is to have 2 or more family trees and have diffenrent entry points so each family does not have to go through each others family to get to the side of the family they are a part of.(confusing?) It seems that the second family tree I created will have to enter through my wifes side of the family- (the family tree I entered 1st) and select a different family tree to see the one I created for them. It also seems that if I invite my side of the family and they want to upload pictures it will have to end up at the 1st site I created.
Sorry its hard to explain what is going on. Did I completely add the second family tree wrong or will I end up having to make some sort of generic family entry point for both families and have to tell them to enter their side by the drop down choice of family trees?
Here is the name of th My Sites to delete:
delete Family Tree Web site

I would like to keep these 2: Shuman Family Tree Web Site and Sperduti Web Site
Also on my Shuman Family Tree Web Site my niece's contact name is spelled wrong. It reads Flasher not Dasher. The only place I can find it is on the contact for her but I can't seem to fix it no matter what I do. I have deleted her and readded her back and it still seems to come back and I can't find the place where it is that I can change it. Please help.
Christy Carter (born Dasher) is a niece of your wife. Click
Please delete all sites I have, I will need to recreate all the sites I have. Everytime I try to do something it gets worse.
When you delete the sites I request is that something only you can do or is that something I can do from my end so I don't have to further request the help to do that? If I can do that myself please tell me how. Thanks
A premium subscription is per Family Site.
If you have two trees in the same site,
each member will have to be associated with a specific tree,
and will get notifications for this tree.
You can also set up the site so that each member will see himself in the tree page, as a default.
Very impressed with the comprehensive nature of MyHeritage website and the Family Tree Builder.
Not quite understanding about Guests accessing custom pages...
Am I right in thinking a Guest is someone who has joined MyHeritage.com but is not a member of my family web site?
I have set up a couple of custom pages as a test, to see how they work. I want a blog that family members can read but guests can't.
