Any honest person applying for LDS MH accout needs to be give n the MH/FS Agreement for review, or must be unwilling to bind themselves to it, as required in the current MH Terms of Linking. We will not be blindly bound by it, and will recommend widely by every means available that all members of the Church of Jesus Christ should likewise withdraw from MyHeritage until the demand for compliance with a secret document is removed from the MH Terms of Linking, or that all applicable terms of the document are made available for review by members affected by it .
Frankly, we have given the matter some thought, and cannot conceive of any morally defensible reason for MH to make such a demand, We feel shocked and threatened by this lack of transparency.
We look forward to an amicable resolution of this impasse, and continuing success of your enterprise.
The additional people that you are not able to see at the moment are contained within branches. The branches are represented by smaller blue and pink boxes that appear above a persons profile card and you will need to click on this to reveal the additional people.
I have two releatives who were married and when their respective spouses died they married each other. How can I show on the tree that they were married and then remarried without having them as two separate legs?
I've had a similar situation, where first cousins married. Just go to the female's box, left click, click on spouses, and attach her to the male. In this way, they also retain their first spouses and they do not show up as double entries in your tree. Please note that only the first spouse will show on tree unless you left click, go to spouses, and click on the second spouse's name. Hope this helps. Happy hunting!
I must be doing something wrong. When I click on add a spouse it creates a second entry for the husband. So I'm not sure how to attach the second spouse to the female without creating a second entry for the person.
Thank you for the upgrade to the online software. This interface has many of the things I have been hoping for. It is a great improvement.
I like the slide out panel with easy access to a persons details (I missed this when I lost the classic view).
I like the fact that I don't have to go into full profile mode to see and edit a persons informaiton.
I like the new photo adding interface. However, I do wish that photos could be uploaded to a folder of my choosing when I am adding photos. I would also like to have more control over which photos I share. i.e. I'd like to put photos in my own folders and then decide which folders I share.
The new interface will save a lot of time editing and reviewing, so thank you very much for your efforts.
Hi folks, i see in my website that on top of the page of the family tree there is a notification saying 181 of 228 people. I have counted the names of familymembers that i have added and that are indeed and only 181 people.
So i wonder where u get those 228. In my family tree builder on my laptop i see that until now i have added 224 people. Is that 228 the result of a previous sync between the website and the FTB perhaps??
I have a similar problem: In my family tree which I work on, I have 133 people, but when I access the tree via the family website, it only shows 87. I have carefully saved and synced each update, so why aren't they appearing on the Family website tree?
I have three Swedish cousins related through my GGGMother. The first two sent my the connections. The third just sent me 32 pages of well referenced material, with a lot of US potential relatives. The problem is that I am running into conflicts with the Swedish names. If you have ever done Swedish work you'll know what I mean. I am running into many confusing people who are cousins to each other.
I want to start a new tree using the 32 pages, starting in 1781.
How do I start with someone other than myself and keep the first tree that I am now using. In other words, I want to have two trees. I want to start in 1781 and work down to and beyond me.
I have been adding data to a branch of my tree. I have now been given a gedcom file from a family member ( who doesnt use MyHeritage) who has much more detail than I have. I would like to import their data onto my tree.
Is there any way to merge the datasets? I am only using the Online site.
A couple of things I would like to explain before we go to the actual instructions on how to merge trees:
1. The process of merging trees can only be done with Family Tree Builder (click here to download it for free).
2. The merging process is not automatic. That means, that you actually will have to merge duplicate people inside the final project manually. Therefore, we only recommend the merging process for two different trees which do not have many of the same people in each one of them. For example: if you receive a file from someone else that already includes you and all your siblings, children, etc... By adding it to your own tree, you wil have all those people appearing twice. It is better to merge when you actually have a branch of a tree that none of the people exist on your own tree, and then you have to simply link that new branch to someone who's already in your tree. Example: if you don't know who your grandfather's mother is, and then you receive a file with all the branch of his mother and you simply will connect that branch to him.
Having that in mind, please click on the link below in order to read a comprehensive explanation on how to merge trees:
