Hi, I'm new to using Family Tree Builder and I had a question about how to add illegitimate children. In both cases the names of the fathers are known but when I add them as the children's father it automatically adds the mother as the father's spouse. How do I add two parents to a child but show that they were never married?
We recently released a version of Family Tree Builder 7 for Apple's Mac OS X.
MyHeritage Family Tree Builder for Mac is adapted from the Windows version and can run directly on Mac OS X without requiring Windows Operating System.
This version of Family Tree Builder was developed in order to meet the increasing demand for a Mac Version of Family Tree Builder. It is based on the most current version 7 of the Family Tree Builder.
While we are working on a native, modern Mac application for the Family Tree Builder, this adapted version gives our users the option to start working on a Mac today.
Mac OS X versions that are supported:
Family Tree Builder for Mac currently runs on OS X starting from version 'Snow Leopard' up to 'Yosemite' (10.6 up to 10.10).
Features not available in this version:
Most Family Tree Builder features run perfectly on a Mac. However, there are a few features that are not compatible and are not available.
These features include:
We don’t support the following languages: Hebrew, Yiddish, Arabic, Farsi and Korean. Notice that this is relevant only for the display language. We do support these languages for data entry.

edit the relationship STATUS of the parents from DEFAU:LT= Married-- change to Partners or OTHER -- there are options from which you can select!
Thanks, I did change him to other but the man is still showing up as a relation through marriage to others in the family tree (e.g. my cousin's father is showing as my uncle despite not having married my aunt).
MyHeritage starts, displays an error "Cannot create folder: \psfHomeDocumentsMyHeritage" and then closes.
I want to evaluate the Windows version (inside parallels) so that my Mother can install it on her Windows XP machine. I can create the folder "\psfHomeDocumentsMyHeritage" and navigate to it through Windows Explorer but MyHeritage still fails. I can't see any registry keys that look like they contain a path I can change.
The MyHeritage install .exe was in the C: drive and it installed into the C: drive, but is trying to store to the shared parallels folder.
I will try this next: http://kb.parallels.com/en/6885 but any other ideas welcome. Thanks.
Since uploaded images are not working I dont know if this is the case: FTB handle dates in just a few formats.
One format that allways works is I.E. "3 apr 1900". If I would use the modern swedish format for that: 1900-04-03 it can interpit that but would switch the day and month (will work for days after the 12th) and I cant display it in that format either. If you use any other format than the "official" I think you will get the ? and the calculations/controls will fail.
If you try to export data from FTB to excel it is not possible to handle early dates (-1900) in Excel so for that reason the format YYYY-MM-DD would be best to make it sortable as text.
Thank you for your attention. It is not my case. All you told I understand but I add dates this way like in the image. SO no way that I do something wrong. I choose dates by dropdown and write the year manually off course.
In the last hour when I tried to sync or connect from FTB to my family site (at http://www.myheritage.com/site-240385321/site ) I get a message indicating that there is no family site and asking if I want to set one up.
Are other people seeing this, too? Is this a temporary glitch? Is there something I need to do to fix this?
I started creating a family tree a few years ago using Family Tree Builder and published it online. The last time I made any alterations to it was in 2011 but since then I have replaced my computer and have had to download and re-install Family Tree Builder. How can I download or copy the online version of my family tree back to the Family Tree Builder software on my PC so that I can continue developing the site?
I have added already a lot of persons in my family tree and just sometimes I have problem with importing date of death. That happens expecially when I have someone for example born in 1956 who died in 2002. The software shows me a message that the date of death must be afther the birth date. It is a nonsence. I tried to fix that in many ways...
If I suceed to import that date it is shown in the box but not in the short header. Look image in attachment. You can see the full birth date imported but under the name there is a ? instead the year of birth.
I found also in this case the date is imported by type: date as free text (datum kao slobodni tekst) and the system is not importing it by type: just date (samo datum). I mean...I do that but afther I edit the date again it is shown as free text.
It seams this is a software BUG.
And there is another BUG. Sometimes something go wrong with birth date and it seams to my has something to do with the month. It allways happen when I have April month. Maybe it is a coincidence, don't know. Take a look at the second image. You can see there is the full birth date visible but under the name there is no data about that.
I am moving all my data from present Windows 7 laptop to Windows 8. Application works fine on Windows 7. I just went to MyHeritage site and did a download/install of the application. The process started fine but got stuck. It has been stuck for over 5 mins. At present, the install process is showing:
Hello, again - Seems like the install finished successfully. It had me concerned that the process was just seeming to sit at a place for a very long while. I was not able to see any drive activity (I can't see any drive light on the new laptop) which made me think that the process was stuck. Soon after sending the call for help, I saw that the process finished. My next issue is exporting the database but that will be another thread if I need help. I am trying to see the documentation on MH on how to do that.
Hi! I've just imported a GEDCOM file, and have found that 'unknown' spouses are appearing at random places in charts; they don't show up in the tree entry for the people they're attached to, or their list of spouses, so I can't see how to delete them. Any suggestions for how to get rid of them?
