I thought several months ago, whenever I published the updated information that I researched and added to FTB, that it would also add the info to the online family tree. I find today that information that I have been adding for last 2 weeks (obituary, notes, parents, children,etc.) have not been updated to the online family tree on the website. The only thing that is added is the photos or documents that I added to the persons.
It also appears that the publishing since the last 2 months has not been updating online.
Today, the only way to show online the people that I am currently working on was to add them to the online family tree by hand which takes about 20 minutes per person since you have to add the person then go to the list and edit each piece of information again by hand.
No wonder there is over 200 people difference in local FTB person count versus online count out of 6,000 in another program.
As I am attempting to restore from hard drive crash that lost 2000 people just before you took over FTL (my CD backup and online backup did not work), I was up to #998 of over 7000 people. Since this took all of my vacation time and my days off since Jan 2007 to get to only 300 people difference, it seems I need to begin all over again checking each person on local programs and online as well.
I was assuming that the publishing would make it happen, that's what I get for assuming. I will just add 2 more years to my researching to get my local programs with the same info AND the online before I can start the digging again.
Family trees created in Family Tree Builder should always be updated in the program and then republished to your family site.
Family trees created online should always be updated directly from your site.
I took a look at your site and found you have two trees. One of them is the family tree that came from GenCircles. *shaking your hand* Welcome! It's nice to meet you!
This GenCircles family tree with 6900 or so individuals is editable online. It will not be updated if you publish from FTB.
If you prefer to work with this tree in FTB, you can easily Export a Gedcom of the GenCircles tree, then Import it to FTB and start working from there. Whenever you want the updates to show up on the site, just publish.
Regarding your other question about information not updating properly for the last couple of months, I wasn't sure I understood. Could you try to clarify for me? I can see that your FTB tree has around 6500 people in it.
In order to check this information for yourself, just go to your site and click on Family Tree > Summary. You'll see a list of the trees on your site as well as information about where they came from (FTB, gedcom, etc), how many individuals are in them and when they were last updated.
In order to update a tree online you need to go to the family site and click on the 'Family Tree' button (second on the left), the 'Main' link below should be selected. If it is not selected please click on it.
You are then showed your family tree and can enter data.
If you have published a tree from Family Tree Builder application you need to edit the tree in the Family Tree Builder and then re-publish the tree.
One of the members of my myheritage.com family site "Out of the Past" is unable to log in. She enters her password and the next page that comes up is completely white. She is the only member of my site that receieves this error. She has sent password requests and yes, her password is right. I told her to make sure she was typing it as wrtten because I am not sure if it is case sensitive and she is still unable to access the site. This has been going on for well over a month now. Being older, she is very computer nervous and timid about asking for herself.
Is there anything I can tell her to do to remedy the situation and allow her access?
Hello, in my experience one of the easiest things to do is go to the Address Book (member list) and find the link that says "Re-invite". I believe this will send an email with instructions to log in. If that doesn't help then you could suggest using Windows Remote Assistance to help guide her through the steps.
I wrote an extensive front page message about the families I am researching -- it's all gone! Where is it please? Unfortunately I didn't save it anywhere else, so is it gone for good, or is somewhere on my site?
The Heritage Team should have notified us that they were planning on removing our content so we could have save it before they did it. Thanks a lot HT, NOT !
1) I added parents to children who already exist on my list in my tree. Now, I need to link them. I don't need to ADD children to the parents because they are asking for NEW children. I have them listed, but I need to LINK them to the parents that I just added. Anny sugestions?
2) I would like to know if there is a way to invite members and have some be able to edit my tree and others NOT be able to edit the tree. Is there a way to do that? My tree is marked private now. THanks, Terry
Are you working in the Heritage Family Tree? I have a gedcom tree in Heritage and when I want to add a parent, I click on the child's Person box and then on where it says add a parent. Or I look above the child's little floating box and there should be blank boxes which say, "add parent."
I, too, am having this same problem. I 'published' my file to the website from my Heritage Family Tree Builder software; not GEDCOM. I later decided to add a living child so I published again to catch this update. Now that living child is showing on my website but not linked to his parents. I have right clicked above the child picture and either of his parents and all I get are options such as 'zoom', etc. No add child or add parent. I have no little floating box saying to add parent.
I've even tried publishing it again thinking it would catch it the second time around but no luck.
Any answers will help. I am using a 'free' version of the website. Am I supposed to upgrade in some way to make this work?
Thanks for your reply. The problem is that I need to link people that are already on the tree that the GEDCOM file didn't link when I imjported it. I don't need to add the parents. They are already on my list of individuals. If I hit child's ADD button, it adds a new father and a new mother. I already have the mother and the father in the list, so I don't need duplicates. But, they are not LINKED. I bet I have to go and delete my tree and try to import the GEDCOM over again. I can't see any other way. Thanks for your help anyway.. :))
Hey, thanks for your response. However, you are not specific enough. Where? I went to the Person View, I right clicked, and there is no Link whatsoever. It says Zoom and PRINT and ADOBE FLASH player, but nothing about any links. I went to the family view. No links. Give me specific info about where I'm supposed to be right clicking. The info is from a GEDCOM file. Does that matter? Thanks, Terry
Hi Terry,1.In the Immersive family tree on your site, we still don’t have the capability you are looking for. In MyHeritage jargon, that feature is called Attach. I am guessing that you want to show children with their step or adoptive parents, yes? We are doing some improvements to the Immersive family tree and will be adding that functionality. In the meantime, the best thing to do is to add a fact on each person’s genealogy card which tells of the relationship.2.Allowing certain members access to edit the tree is also something that we will be adding in the future. Currently, you can either allow members to post content all over the site or not. There is no way to choose specific members other than to deny all members the ability to post all content and then promote the people you want to allow posting ability to Webmaster status.
Hello, linking an existing relative on the online tree is still impossible. This feature is a "must be" category. Relatives are married to each other. Since it's been already 3 years since the first request was published it should already be added by now. The building of an online tree is impossible without it. I'm already stuck. I have few cases that I can't fix. Doing it in a family tree is not an option since all the photos had to be taged again and again, every time I made the changes. Please hurry up!!!
