Through discoveries I have found other family tree sites that link into mine through a 2nd grandma for example. I would like to be able to export their tree from the most recent generation back to the link in my tree. Is that at all possible? I havent found out how to download the GEDCOM from their tree yet without emailing and asking them to download and email it to me.
I have also noticed that when extracting information it does not import the photos. Is there a way to make that happen. As it currently stands I go to their page, download the pic, then upload it into my contact.
I think that you will have to add the other tree in stages as 'Discoveries' finds the matches, also out of courtesy I would ask to join the other site so that you can see all the information, and exchange ideas.
'Smart matches' will then find the other site and from each match you can import the appropriate pictures.
I have tried to contact support twice because my Request Membership and Contact Site Manager links do not work on my website. Both times I have used the Help/Support representative link and the e-mails have come back as undeliverable. How are you suppose to contact support when the links don't work?
Is your site private? With the latest changes, casual visitors can't even see your private site until they log on to myHeritage. So the only "guests" private sites will have are people who already have a myHeritage account. And they will only find the site if they already know the URL.
If you have a link in your social media page invitiing non-myHeritage guests to drop by your web page and read the front page comments, and maybe leave a comment or request access, it would work anymore. Those people won't even see your front page anymore.
Obviously myHeritage didn't want the free advertising.
I'm beginner on my heritage. And I would like to know how can I share the tree to others with and without give the access to edit the tree. Second, what is the difference among free, premium, and plus account. And how much price charged to each account.
Through "discoveries" I have gotten hundreds of distant ancestors added to my tree. The problem is that most of these aren't my own ancestors, only their siblings and their children. I don't want an endlessly sprawling tree with new matches for my indirect ancestors. How can I avoid indirect ancestors added, or delete them quickly? (The normal way of deleting individuals would take forever in this case)
There is not a way to 'avoid' which type of relative you can receive an Instant Discovery about.
However, you can simply ignore that Instant Discovery, if you are not interested in it. When you receive a Discovery, you can always review to which person on your tree those discoveries are and each relative is presented according to the person's point of view. For instance, if you receive an Instant Discovery to "John", it will show you the new people that can be added and the relation of those people to John - 'his uncle', 'his father', etc.
If it seems irrelevant to you, just reject the Instant Discovery by clicking on "Reject" on the bottom of the page by the "Add to tree" button.
You must inform yourself first of the linguistic and cultural practices of the person's culture of origin. For example, rocket builder Werner should be entered with a last name of "Von Braun"; but composer Ludwig with a last name of "Beethoven".
Hey! I should have written that I DO know the meaning of "De" and "Von". Really! My concern is whether AUTOMATED SEARCHES can handle it. The search on FTB does not. If I type "Lorraine" when the last name is "de Lorraine" the FTB cannot find the person.
If you are using our mobile app for Android (for smartphones and tablets such as Samsung ones), then there is not a way at the moment to centre a photo so that the face of the person appears on the correct centred part of the profile picture.
I will forward your question as an improvement suggestion for our Mobile Team, to take in consideration for future new versions of the app.
