I have made mistake by skipping a generation. Some 8 generations back I have ancestor Alzbeta born 1807, but I instead entered her mother, also Alzbeta and then I entered few generations back from there, and sideways. Is it possible to fix without first removing each person on these branches and re-etering them one by one?
I have two trees in my web site. I set one of as the default tree. After logging out and in again, the other tree is the default tree. I set the first one again, log out and in, and it is switched again etc etc etc etc etc etc
This is annoying and stupid. If there is a tool to set a default tree, it should keep that tree as default.
The reason for this problem is, that you are still associated to the other tree, not the default tree.
Please associate your person card in the tree that you want to use as default tree. Then it should work fine.
Move your mouse cursor over the ‘Home’ tab and click on ‘Site Members’. Next to the your name you will see the field where it says "This is you". Now click on the ‘More’ link on the right side and select ‘Fix relationship’. Start typing your name in the same way it shows in the tree, in the empty field and choose the name in the tree that you want as default tree.
Are both your trees build using FTB (Family Tree Builder) or they using importations of GEDCOM files?
If using FTB, are you using the Sync (Synchronization) function between setting the default trees, or is FTB running in the background, if so kill FTB, set the default, then restart your computer. This should help the "fix" the default tree.
Thank you for the suggestion, but it did not help. The only thing from MyHeritage running in the background was FTB check for updates, which I killed and set the default tree. After restarting the computer and logging in to my web site, the tree was no longer my default tree.
Another thought, set the default tree online, then using FTB sync you computer based tree with the online version, therefore the background sync progam ("FTB check for updates") will not revert to the other tree
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.
