I'm sorry you are having trouble. I took a look at your site together with the head programmer of the Immersive Family Tree and we can see that there is indeed a problem.
First, I've registered this problem as a bug and we are working to fix it now.
Second, I would be happy to enter the information you are having trouble with for you. At least that way, the data will be in the tree until we can get the problem taken care of. If you would prefer, you are welcome to send me an email to email@example.com.
I apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
With the coming of Vista (or whatever takes over the PC market), I have decided to migrate to Linux. At present, I'm dual booting XP and Ubuntu. I'm looking for genealogy software which will work on the Linux side. Anybody know if MyHertigage has a LInux version? In the alternative, is there a genealogy program which runs under Linux which works with zedcom files?
Congratulations on your move. It is a valiant choice.
Unfortunately we don't have genealogy software which is Linux compatible. Neither do i know about a Linux-compatible genealogy software which can handle zedcom files.
You can definitely create a family tree online and build it directly from your family site. You will be able to make additions and updates from the Family Tree page of your site. It is possible to allow your family members priveleges to add to the tree as well.
In order to get started, use the Upload Gedcom option from the Family Tree page.
I hope you will find this solution useful. If you have any questions, just let me know.
I have Ubuntu Hardy 8.04, downloaded FTB, but when I try to install it using wine, the initial blue install screen comes up and then sits there forever. Hangs my machine and I have to reboot to get out. Have tried several times. Got any tips?

This will create a tree that you and your site members can edit and add to online."
I have uploaded my gedcom file (which I created from my family tree and "Imported" it via the Import Gedcom link on the Family Tree page) but I cannot edit it online? I cannot find any options to edit the gedcom tree online?? How do I edit my gedcom tree? Where do I go to edit it?
Please help, I have posted several queries on how to edit my gedcom tree but so far have received no answers. Please forgive me, and don't take this as a complaint, it isn't, It's just that I've seen your above message and am now trying, in vain, to edit the file.
I am having the same problem and I did not want to publish the tree on my computer software it did it and did not let me choose a GED file or something else. How dod I change this?? And how do I delete things from the family trees I have deleted people and they still sort of show up with no name.
In order to start editing your family tree, move your mouse over one of the green or orange person cards in the tree.
You should see two little icons appear. One looks like a little pencil and one is a blue 'i'.
Clicking the little pencil icon will bring up the edit details window. In this window you can change first/last name, email address, gender, date of birth/death.
The little blue 'i' icon is the information icon. This will bring up information about a person in the left hand side of the screen. It will change the List View (on the left where you see the list of names of people in your tree) to Person View (which shows details about a specific person).
In Person View there are also some options to allow you to add details such as photos and facts, partners or to delete a person.
I've attached a screenshot to give you a better idea where to look.
I hope this information will get you started. If you have more questions, let me know.
I've noticed that siblings are ordered from left to right by order in which I enter them. I'd rather they be in birth order going left to right. In some cases I don't know the birth year but I do know birth order. I tried clicking and dragging but that doesn't work.
If this is NOT possible I recommend it to the developers.
We hear you! And your suggestions are very important to the betterment of MyHeritage.com.
It is great to learn that there are people out there who ask serious questions about MyHeritage and our products. It signifies to me that there are people who really use the system and that is gladdening.
Regarding your suggestion, we are aware of this annoying arrangement and it will be rectified in the near future.
*We're going to make some exciting changes to the site very soon, so keep your eyes out.
Thank you for your response. I was working in the classic view, I will go back and try the modern view.
Also, do you recommend just doing Father's side on one site and then doing Mother's on another? I think that's where my trouble is..as my Mom's siblings are not in order because they are listed to the left of her name(she was not oldest)..so from her parents it starts with her and then the eldset on down ..if that makes any sense..thanks again
I invited a # of people to the site (davidowitz.myheritage.com) . They never recieved invitations. When they try to register manually, they say that the e-mail address is already taken. The site then asks if they want to be e-mailed their password. If they say yes, t they never recieve an e-mail with the updated password....
We work very hard to make sure that invitation emails get to their proper destinations, but as we are dependent on email providers to get those mails through, we cannot avoid the fact that it sometimes happens that an email doesn't reach the recipient.
There are a few things that your site members can do in order to help us increase the chances their invitations will reach them:
1. Check spam/junk mail folders. In many cases, the email is simply filtered there.
2. Check spam/junk mail options. Add MyHeritage.com as an accepted sender.
3. Use an email address at gmail rather than at hotmail or AOL who are notorious for blocking good emails.
If one of your invitees tried Forgot Your Password and didn't receive the password, please have him or her check #1 and 2 above. After doing this, if the password still doesn't reach its destination, ask them to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the word DAVIDOWITZ in the subject line.
When I try to publish the site (davidowitz.myheritage.com) with updated data from FTB, it gets to 10% and says that the site is in the middle of being published - this has been going on for quite some time. As a result I can't update the site. I have tried deletting the publishing request and recreating (as suggested under a different post) - this did not help either.
I updated the settings on for the Calendar to include Death anniversaries - now I have no calendar entries that were imported from the geneology information. Can you please help? I have tried resetting to the default Calendar settings on the site (davidowitz.myheritage.com) and this did not help....
I just downloaded this program and it shut down on me in the middle of editing. the message I received was in red stating it was a Runtime error. Everytime I try to open the program it does the same thing of shutting down.
I have tried searching the message boards for anyone else having this problem and came up empty. Can someone suggest some help?
