I am having difficulty with the new version of My Heritage, I do not know how to add additional people to my family tree or to edit the current information. The information in ' help' relates to the previous version.
There are many ways to add someone to the database. The easiest way is to view the information for a related person, then look above for the button "Add Person". It'll drop down with selections such as "Add Spouse", "Add Son", "Add Daughter", and you can even "Add Unrelated Person".
The basic management of individuals in the tree has not changed since the previous version so everything in the manual regarding this basic functionality should still be the same. We are currently working on an update to the manual for the new released version 5, and it will be available soon.
We try to answer all our customers, and obviously give priority to paying customers. If we don't know the solution to the problem we try to ask more questions so that we understand the problem better. Sometimes there is no current solution and we attempt to solve the problem in the next version of the product.
If you have a specific question that you would like to ask or problem you are encountering, I'll be happy to try and answer it.
Dear One and All, as a new member to My Heritage and Family Tree Builder, could someone Please give me some guidance as to what users place within the "Agency" section of Add New Source. I understand the other sections fully.
Also whereabouts does one give the reference a # etc for sorting purposes.
I am quoting the GEDCOM standard regarding the meaning of the Agency field in a source:
The organization, institution, corporation, person, or other entity that has responsibility for the associated context. For example, an employer of a person of an associated occupation, or a church that administered rites or events, or an organization responsible for creating and/or archiving records.
I the case of a source, we're talking about the last example: "an organization responsible for creating and/or archiving records"
I am using the free version of MyHeritage. Because of my Czech heritage I have trouble typing Czech special letters into my ancestor's names, even when I use Czech keyboard on my computer - I only can type š and ž. But I need to type ě, č, ř, ů. Is there something within the program that I can do, some adjustment?
Thanks for your upcoming advice (I hope it comes soon).
I did indeed switch to Czech both as keyboard language and display language in MyHeritage. Still - no respond. If I fill out a relative's personal data, best example is "Oldřich Ježek",the display shows after typing "Oldrich Ježek" Or someone who is named "H°ula" is now "Hula". How is a permanent change possible?
