I have just updated to V7 and discovered that my load time has gone fron 59/61 seconds to 232 seconds.
thats a four fold increase in loading-- I wonder if all the "advantages" with V7 might be lost if I revert to earlier version-- just becaue I will jot live long enough to complete my research at the speed of loading and re-write that I have experinced with V7.
Or am I out on a limb on my own here?
Do others experince slow read/ write .
Please tell me its not real--
I should tell you I have 61,000 people in my file That could be a warning to others - comeing along who have not gaot that many records== pehaps avoid large trees ( I Recall Jack the Swede in Spain making reference to a similar issue)
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.
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.
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?
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).
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 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?
I have amassed 15065 people in my Family Tree and i have noticed that MyHeritage Family Tree builder has been freezing everytime i begin to enter new information, i know everytime i have asked i've been told there is no limit.... but when it freezes now when it never did before i think i may be reaching the limit... Also i have noticed some of my Notes disapearing which really scares me as i put very important info in my notes and while i have copied most, its hard to know when i did, and if i had added more info since then....
Yes anytime i find a Obituary i save it in my notes as a way to easilly access that info again if i think it deserves a second look, i will also add notes from family interviews or things that i found even website links, one day i decided to look at something i knew was there and it was not..... all other notes seemed fine so i thought well maybe somehow it didn't save then another note disapeared that i knew i had done, i've gotten to where i am saving obits now as pdfs but then its difficult to find them when so many of my ancestors have similar names....
I have often wondered how people keep trees in line, all of my families are huge i was thinking of starting 4 trees for each grandparent but i'm not sure i can do that without losing info....
