I allso have this problem. Very annoying! And I too have the swedish version. I have tryed to click the link You gave, but it goes to a FAQ in swedish where I cant find the thread You recomended. Please! Can You help me? My familypage is http://www.myheritage.se/site-family-tree-64831611/uvemark
I've been setting nationalities for my ancestors... There doesn't appear to be the option for Scotland?.. I can see there are options for England, United Kingdom and Ireland in the drop down list but there's no 'Scotland'.. herumph!
Is this something that can be corrected in the next release of a program update please as my patriotic Scottish ancestors will be turning in their graves!
If you look at soccer there is no UK team. Only England, Scotland, Walse and I believe Nothern Ireland.
Sometimes it can be difficult to describ a nationality if the country does not exist any more or its borders has changed. Europe has gone thru big changes thru the centuries. It can be difficult to place i.e a city in Pommern which was where Poland is now and belonged to Germany some time and during other times was occupied by Sweden. Where shall you place the city? In Poland, Germany or Sweden... it depends on when you place the city.
Exactly, more or less, so. I handle it in several ways and not always consistently. For instance, many of my ancestors were born, lived and died and I myself was born in Indonesia when it was the Dutch or Netherlands East Indies and Jakarta was Batavia. So I usually record (Batavia) Jakarta, Java, (Netherlands Indies) Indonesia. If I don't, I mention somewhere that Jakarta used to be Batavia. On my husband's side the family came from border regions between Russia, Poland, Rumania, etc. From the time they left the old country and petitioned for US citizenship the region could have changed hands several times. I have official documents on which the country of birth is called 'Poland Russia'. This is what keeps us humble regarding immutability and consistency, for even the programmers at myHeritage cannot accommodate this kind of change and inconsistency.
Is it possible to block SMART-MATCHES from family sites which have thousands of relatives; and/or block requests for SMART-MATCHES whch don't have very high probablities/percentage of matching relatives such as under 70%.
Just I keep getting requests for matching where name might be same but 3 to 4 different generations apart.
I am getting a lot of duplicate wrong smart matches.
I have clicked on "reject this match". I have clicked on "ignore this tree". Yet it shows up again a couple of days later. Same tree, same incorrect match. Short of deleting MY person, how do I fix this problem once and for all??
Please note, that you can get duplicate smart matches, if the matched person appears on several different tree projects on the other, matched site.
In this case - on the top of your smart matching results list - I see that you have got several duplicate matches with a site, on which there are few duplicate trees with different names - this situation causes the system to recognize them as different projects and find a new match for each newly published new family tree project.
Additionally - each tree has duplicate people - which causes the duplicate matches from each tree for individuals on your family tree.
Therefore - I can advise to you to:
- either contact the other site manager, explain the situation, and maybe he could delete all the duplicate information.
- to ingnore all the new smart matches for that individual in your family tree, as the wrong matches come form other tree, by following the instructions below:
I think I'm just going to delete MY person that causes all the wrong matches to appear. Not even close in terms of names/dates etc. Too much hassle for me to keep clicking on IGNORE and REJECT thisperson/tree.
Please note, that in this case, id contacting the other site manager doesn't help - you don't have to delete this person from your family tree - but simply can use the "ignore smart matches" feature, in order to ignore all the duplicate matches.
You can do so by using the instruction in the FAQ post, I've suggested you in my last post:
I added a bunch of spaces in between letters and numbers in dates of the person in my tree. That solved the problem! - none of those trees are listed anymore in my matches!!!! I know what the correct name is, your computer cant figure it out to match it to an incorrect person!
New problem: I have confirmed matches and I am now getting the same ones matched over and over again (eg Gerlernter)
I imported over from another software and unfortunately it used the short names for the locations. As your program doesn't support short and long for names (there is a suggestion for you) I am having to update all the locations. However when I try and adjust a place that is attached to multiple files the programs crashes. It has happend about 5 or 6 times in the last 15 minutes and is getting frustrating.
I have become a bit of a stickler in regards to citing sources for the data I have collected, due to having re-created my genealogy file a few times in a certain other software which shall remain nameless. To further the issue I needed a software that would allow me to deal with same-sex marriage easily, which lead me to this software. However I am noticing a decided lack of correct sourcing ability in this software. As a reference I use "Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian" as a guide. My sources are comming out truncated and incomplete. My source citations are set as endnotes and the Short Format box is unticked so that I get the full citation, however I do not seem to be getting it all. I am curious if I am doing something wrong, or is there some catch I do not seem to be getting with your citations tabs. I am sourceing at the fact level rather than using the general citations tab (which I am trying to figure out why it is there in the first place).
Would you be able to take a screenshot of this for me? This will help me forward the problem to our development team for debugging. To take a screenshot, press the Print Screen key on your keyboard; it is the key labeled as “PrintScreen” or "PrtSc". This will copy an image of the MyHeritage screen to your clipboard. Once you have done this, click the Windows Start button in the bottom left corner and run MSPaint. It should be under All programs > Accessories > Paint. Once it's open, click Paste from the Edit menu, or simply press CTRL-V. Now you can save the screenshot as an image file and attach that image to an email and send it to me.
Please let me know if you encounter difficulty in taking the screenshot.
