FYI, totally unrelated but... i started doing some geneology but when i went to search the database (in which i was asked to install a Java applet) it threw back an error about the certificate of SearchApplet.
Under the Events tab I cannot see birthdays of deceased family members. Under Settings I have checked Birthdays and set it to All People. I still don't see them. For instance: my grandmother, Maria Alberta van der Kolk, born May 8, 1901 is not on the list of May. However, when I do a search on her name, I do find her, so that is strange. How can I do this? Thanks.
BTW: when will the new version op FTB be available?
I like the Myheritage software very much, however, there is something in the modern view of the online family tree that seems slightly disresepectful. When listing a widower who has remarried after his first wife has passed, the website connects him with a line going through the deceased wife to his current wife. It looks a bit odd. A more considerate method might be to put the second spouse on the other side of the widower, because there was not a divorce.
Is there way I can change my sites settings so it will display that way?
My wife, Kara Antoni, is messed up. It's right on my home computer, but wrong on the website. Her parents are Ben Antoni and Pam Graham. Her real Dad died and mom remarried.
1) How to restore the link between Kara and her real parents on the web site?
2) Is there a way to add her new Dad (Pam Graham married David Cornell) in the family as her adopted father? When I try, it makes Pam Graham her mom twice because I have to add parents in sets, but I don't need to do that and I don't want to add her real mom as an adoptive mom.
You are using FTB. There is no problem provide (at local computer) any changes, in any situation, include specials and repairs. If is after republishing tree on web still wrong, i thing, best and simplest way is, delete whole tree on webpage, and then republish clearly from FTB. (Do not remember, for absolutly sureness, first backup or export.)
I'm sorry, I've been away. I finally was able to try the fix above but it doesn't work.
I don't know how to delete a tree, but I did delete my wife (Kara) and her immediate parents. Then I uploaded that version to the web site, and they were not there. Good. Then, I restored my backup and uploaded to the web site, and once again, my wife's parents are there, but they have no relationship to her. To repeat, her parents and their trees are present, but the relationship with her is broken.
could you fix a leakage of private data of people on my web site? I struggled to shift an e-mail address from one member to another. I found you actually can't simply delete an e-mail address if you set it once. I thought (following data organization logic) it would be ok if I would indicate the person as dead for a moment and than make him/her alive again. Result? An e-mail action has succeed but the people's data (my uncle and his daughter) are public now. That is not what I wanted to do. :-) BTW: a czech version is far from being perfect.
Thanks for your help!
I'm assuming you invited this person to become a member of your family site and the site membership is what you had problems with?
If you can tell me the email address and the name of the person to whom it should belong I can fix it for you.
I'm sorry for the confusions. I'll try to be more clear.
The e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org once (and now seems forever) associated with my uncle Petr Kalfus (1938). The person to whom the email email@example.com belongs is my cousin and Petr's daughter Dominika Kalfusová (1968). Petr has no email.
The other trouble is that Petr's and Dominika's personal data (date of birth, first name etc.) are public. Any guest can read them at the moment.
And finally I would like to retrieve a complete address of Jana Matějková and replace it with just "Praha".
I see that Dominika and Petr's email addresses are sorted out now. Did Tomas help you? Thanks Tomas!
Dominika and Petr's name, birth date and other personal details are visible only to the people you invite to be members of your family site. As long as they are listed as living in the family tree their personal information is hidden when guests come to view the tree.
I have fixed Jana's address for you. It is now written as: Praha, Czech Republic.
Thanks for your help!
I'm afraid one problem remains unfixed. Dominika's and Petr's private data are still public.
Tomas has described for me the way I could fix an email association problem on my own. I'll try it next time.
I'm very happy with your quick and warm response and hope fixing my problems is not just a nuisance.
Skutečně je tu nějaká chyba. V pokusném prostředí se mi to též projevilo. Nechat na chvíli umřít osobu znamená, že je pak i po oživení zcela veřejná. Snad to bude opraveno.
S emaily je to horší, tam dokonce když zadáte chybný email, který ale náhodou skutečně na MH existuje, spáruje se to nějak s tou cizí osobou. Zkuste možná to, že problematického člověka smažete ze členů stránek (ne ze stromu, jen ze seznamu členů), a pak půjde asi ve stromu vynulovat u něj ten email. Když ten mail znovu zadáte do jiné osoby ve stromu, mohla by se tato vazba správně zaregistrovat. Pak už bude stačit v příslušném přihlašovacím profilu té mailové adresy změnit správně nacionále, případně i pohlaví atd.
Česká verze jistě není dokonalá, na druhou stranu ji z anglické přetvářejí dobrovolníci, zcela zdarma ve volném čase. Pokud narazíte na webu na nějakou nesrovnalost, chybu nebo nesmysl, dejte mi prosím vědět. Lze cokoliv opravit nebo přepsat, jen následné uplatnění změn trvá podle mých zkušeností 1-2 víkendy. FTB nedokážu ovlivnit, tam napište na Support.
