I am looking for people related to my Pop: Arthur Ernest Henwood. Born: 1906 at: Newtown, Sydney Australia. His Father's name was: Arthur Ernest Henwood. Born: 1885. Glebe, Sydney Australia. His Mother's name was: Mary Anne Elizabeth Jarvis. Born: 1883. Sydney, Australia. My Pop married: Vera Hazel Clarke. Born: 1912. Sydney, Australia. If any one think's they may be related, or has any info, it would be greatly appreciated. If so, please reply, thank's.
I was fortunate to have a Cousin who started our family tree and received his gedcom. Do to the extensive database he had with over 10,000 names and research I decided to use his gedcom instead of retyping everything to start MyHeritage.com family tree. It works fine but he has passed now and I am the one who is carring on the family genealogy. Since he was the focus of the gedcom, he is now the focus in MyHeritage.com. How do I change it from him to myself?
For some strange reason, my husband's name is showing as something completely wrong, and although he is identified as my husband, the icon is that of a female. When I click on the incorrect name, it takes me to the page that relates to him and does have his correct information, but it's very annoying to have a bizarre name and female icon where my husband's info should be on the site's main page. As with so many things at MyHeritage, I can't find a way to fix it. Can anyone help?
On SuperSearch, we filter out results from family sites you are a Site Manager of so you will always find new information that you’ve never seen before.
If you are finding a different site that is also on your name, it might mean that you have duplicate accounts registered with us.
We can help you 'merge' those accounts. Please, however, send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a link of the family site you are finding on the SuperSearch results or the e-mail address you might have had and used in the past to register with us, so we can track that other account.
You can choose an address (URL) to your site, which you can then share with other people so they can visit the site.
To do that, follow the steps below:
1. Log into your site.
2. Click on your name on the top right corner of the site.
3. Select "Site settings".
4. On the page that opens, click on "General" on the top menu.
5. Another page will open with general settings of your site. The last option is the possibility to choose a customized address to your site (xxx.myheritage.com). After choosing one, click on "Save" to save your changes.
You can then use that address and share it with people.
Note that guests to the site cannot see the full tree, but only the data of deceased people, for privacy reasons. The information of living people will appear as 'private'.
If you would like people to be able to see all the content of your tree, you will have to invite them as registered members. Click on the link below to learn how to do it:
I found this on this site...you might want to see how it works.... I am a newbe to this site so just trying to help you.
Upgrade your site.
You can create as many Web sites as you like. Each site has a subscription plan. Basic plans are absolutely free. But if you want to supercharge your site with more storage, more members, larger family trees and more features, go premium with our Premium or PremiumPlus plans. Only one family member needs to subscribe the site, all other site members enjoy the site for free.
From what I can tell a non-member will only get a seven day free trial to see your family tree. I couldn't get anywhere on this site without signing up and trying the seven day trial. Then I had to use my credit card just to complete and get the seven day trial. Many family members would not be happy about this.... You can always print out your pages and mail them. Or scan them for your members and send them as attachments.
Not sure where to post this, sorry if I am making a mistake. There are a million public records that show my name as Amy C. Flynn. No idea why. I get mail that way also sometimes. I have no connection with any name starting with "C." But the records that come up when I do a search are correct in terms of connecting me to the right people, addresses, etc. so I confirm them. How do I indicate that I am not Amy C.? Is there any way to correct this in the actual records? Very annoying...
I have been wlorking with public records for years. The mistake with your name can only be made once, and erritate you forever. People recording the informatin wrong from the door at census or from a phone, telemarketer, doctor...everyone makes mistakes now and then and that is all it takes. Some people write the way it sounds, some pay attention and ask how is that spelled. It all depends on the person recording the information. Sometimes you can read somthing one way and just automaticlly spell it wrong when rewriting it. This happens all the time. You can makes sure anything going forward is right by double checking how people such as doctors, insurance companys and census are doing it correct. But old records just stay the same and won't be changed. This is why when we research a name we keep in mind that the last name could be spelled differently or wrong in the past. We always link it to be the right person if the other persons involved are the same and match. When researching a person it's our job to keep the wrong spelling and make a note of the difference.
Example: one of my records show a child to a family member. The Census wrote all the people living in the house by first name, using the last name for everyone....But one member living in the house was a servant not a child of the house. Only one record show her full last name and she was a servant. No wonder I could never find birth records of this person.... See what I mean....
Lori, thanks for your answer. I see how this mistake could have happened and then just keep going forever. I hate to include these links though, for the rest of time people will look at my records and wonder what the "C" means. I can imagine my kids trying to figure out after I'm gone if I had some weird secret history... LOL. Guess I have no choice but to live with it though.
Another possibility is an error on your birth certificate. I didn't find out until I was in my 40's that my birth certificate showed my birthday as February 4th, when it was actually February 3rd. I had to pay a small fee to the county to have it corrected and received a corrected birth certificate.
We have records with our name missing the C in schell.... or people want to put a N in our name... I so know how you feel. When someone calls our house and says our name wrong, we know they are a telemarketer...LOL We just repeat our name correct and sometimes they get irritated.
Plus years ago and sometimes today many people don't hear right or can't spell and just go with the flow and do their best. Even if they are messing up our names.....grrr
I just opened an account, and cannot find the classic view tab. I was working with my cousin on her family tree, and she has 2 tabs in the bottom right corner which allow her to switch back and forth between classic and modern. I would prefer to use the classic view and am getting frustrated that I cannot find those two tabs. Please help!
It's great to hear that you've already taken a DNA test and understand the discoveries that such a test may lead to. You have the option to add these test results only within the Family Tree Builder software, that is unfortutnaly not compatible with Mac yet. At the moment it is not possible to enter the DNA test results online, since they contain very personal information they should be kept private. Therefore we do not have the option to share the DNA results within MyHeritage online.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
