One other thing with my example above, having entered 28 Jan 1587/88 and FTB converting it to 28 Jan 1585/86, for some unknown reason, then when you export the GEDCOM file it comes out as 28 Jan 1586/87.
The date I entered is a perfectly valid date according to the GEDCOM 5.5 standard and should be accepted as-is.
Is FTB attempting to convert the date to New Style assuming that I'd entered an Old Style or vice-versa?
With regard to your work around, when entering a free text date, a date phrase in GEDCOM terms, the GEDCOM file export is not enclosing the date in the parenthesis required by the standard.
I've spotted another work around using the free text date option. I can enter it as an 'interpreted' date as INT 28 Jan 1587/88 without the parenthesis date phrase following it. This exports in GEDCOM correctly although it does appear that a date phrase is required to follow an interpreted date by the GEDCOM standard.
If the trees have similar people and are on different sites but also under different accounts (site created by different person with different email address), then you should get matches between the trees.
wie kann ich bei der kostenlosen 4.0 Version die Datumsanzeige ändern?
Bei mir wird das Datum z.B. einer Geburt so dargestellt:
Ich möchte gerne das Format 09.01.1678
Unter dem Menü "Extras" - "Optionen" - Datumsangabe" konnte ich bisher nichts entsprechendes finden, um dies zu ändern.
I have a PC running Windows 7 and a PC running Linux with a Windows 7 virtual machine. They both share a dual monitor setup via a KVM switch. I started off installing the MyHeritage software in the virtual Windows machine, and only installed on the native Windows machine to check whether "Smart Research" ran faster on it. It didn't seem to. On the native Windows 7 machine, where Windows has access to both monitors the MyHeritage software tries to spread its window across both monitors, and ignores any mouse clicks on the second monitor. When I start up Smart research on the left hand side of the screen displays, which means I lose the two columns on the right, and the scroll bar. I can get all four columns onto the one screen by draggging the columns narrower, but they don't stay that way. The same thing happens in the Photos page. I haven't come across any other piece of software that behaves like this with dual monitors. I think I'm stuck with using it on the virtual machine.
On the subject of "Smart Research", is there any advantage in running it to completion? So far I've got about half way through my tree of 240 or so people and it's taken 3 days, and I'd estimate that a good deal more than 75% of all the matches it's found are false ones. What does it do once it's finished?
Thanks for the reply re dual monitors not working well with your software. I have had absolutely no success with Smart Research. I've run the program on three different PCs. On the Windows XP machine which has 2 GB of RAM I got Out of memory messages almost immediately. On my Windows 7 virtual machine that is running on a Linux host using VirtualBox (there is 1 GB RAM available to the machine) researching the entire tree has never comnpleted - at one stage it got as far as looking at every individual in the tree, completing some of them, but most were stuck at 99%. This took several days, at the end of which the program crashed and all research was lost. The program has crashed several times at varying degrees of comnpletion. I've recently been monitoring the process using Process Hacker, and I've found that the memory size of MyHeritage.com continually increases during the research process, and does so even now I have started a new tree that includes only two individuals! On other occasions Process Hacker reports that CPU activity for the research process has ceased, but reports continuing I/O activity. On those occasions restarting the research often leads to a crash, with all research lost, but at other times successfully kicks off further research.
