The arrows showing the relationship between two people is shifted one step when the relationship involves different mothers. It doesn't happen when the mother is the same. For example: the relationship between X and Y.
A is the father of X
B is the father of A
C is a son of B
D is a son of C
Y is the wife of D
ie, A and C have the same father B but different mothers. There is an extra arrow 3 with no annotation from C to B. Arrows to X from A and B are correct. Arrows to B are shifted one step so there is an arrow from nowhere to Y.
Note that the relationship statement at the bottom is correct. I hope that is clear.
When A and C have the same mother and father then A and C are shown as siblings of each other, ie B is not involved and the diagram is correct.
i wanted to download all the albums which are saved on my family web site. so i tried to download albums one by one.
the most important album is the "Family Tree Photos" which conatain the photos which are presented in the tree itself. this album contains 267 pictures. it is impossible to download such a big album, so created smaller copies for the pictures in this album of 60 pictures per each copy. i marked up about 60 pictures in the original album(267) and presses the button "copy selected items" which apears after i mark one picture or more. and i copied the 60 pictures to a new private album. than i could download the smaller album to my PC. one of the albums i created could not be downloaded, because of some error occured in the browser. so i tried other solution - from the smaller album i deleted 18 pictures out of the 60 pictures in it. un fortunatly the 18 pictures were delted both from the small album(60) and from the original album(267). and now i have (42) and (149) pictures in the albums - this is a majur Bug, and now i have 18 pictures less in the family tree. i don't know where from the pictures were deleted and it is a shame, because me(the manager) and other family members upload pictures to the site and suddenly few pictures are deleted.
i made this action on Saterday 17-01-2009 on 16:30 Jerusallem time. and i really hope you have some recycle bin in your site so the pictures can be restored, or maybee you have some other backup tool. please contact me through the site or by mail: email@example.com you do, and if there is a way to restore those 18 pictures.
anyway this bug should be fixed - deleting pictures from a copy album should not delete pictures from the original album.
In hopes that someone at myhertiage may actually read this and do something about it...
I marked my cousin as adopted and it's fine in the FTB but when published online, she does not show up on my tree. She is still listed on the list of people in my tree to the left so when I click on her info, she appears in the tree view as completely on her own, no other names around visable. Surely this is a mistake? Just because a person is adopted doesn't mean she isn't a part of the family. I would like her to show up next to her brothers on my tree (who are not adopted).
I would like to give a personal opinion around the issue with adopted kids in a family tree.
I’m glad that you’re working on a new interface where it will be possible to add people that are not biologically related to the family, but I think that adopted kids should have a more privileged relation than anyone else who is not biologically related to the family. In our modern secular societies adopted kids consider often their adoptive family as their ancestors, as much or even more than their natural family. It might be old-fashioned, or just specific to some religion or culture, to consider primarily blood relations in a family tree.
Yes... the GEDCOM export issue (when exporting not all, but only a few selected person) is a known bug. And there is no fix so far, but the full tree can be exported. I see the FTB and the site is under heavy developmen, suffering from several annoying sickness.
I also figured out a workaround to the editable family tree problem. It seems to me, that if there were only one tree on-line imported from GEDCOM, it is not editable, but if there were more than one, the second one IS editable. (And you should delete the previous one).I managed to solve this issue this way. (And the photo cross-references were lost during the process as described in the help section - have to upload again).
Thanks, I also figured out the GEDCOM method after many frustrating failures and it appears to be working. The export is a real problem as I can't send the export to various individuals so they can work on it. From the date of many of the posts, it seems like this is a widespread issue with a low fix priority
Hi, I am a relatively new user of My Heritage but not a new user into software and computers. This software is very nice software and very useful.
BUT: the Norwegian translation contains several expressions which is not good Norwegian language.
Like for example, under Visits: Who viewed this? is translated into "Hvem viste dette?" which means "Who showed this?". It should be translated into "Hvem besøkte sidene?". On the viewer history page the column Views should be "Visninger" and Last view should be "Siste visning".
There are several other examples on inaccurate translation.
