I need to reread the book published by My heritage. I checked it out from the Montgomery County Library in Conroe Texas but cannot find it again. Please give me the title so that I may re-copy the cd accompanying the book. Many thanks to you. I have traced my family back 7 generatiions so far.
I experience a serious error about first names disappearing. I am new to this system so I cannot say if it just happened; for me it was so from the start. The error is massive and consistent. About a third of the persons (especially the younger generations) loose their first name after the tree has been published. The persons are then called "unknown Skevik" in my tree. The birth data and gender stay correct. Surely this cannot happen to all million users. Support@myheritage.com does not answer my mails on this.
I use a HP machine with intel core i7, win 7 home premium 64 bit and Firefox. I have checked wit IE that the error is ther, too.
Can anybody help me on this, or I must abandon my project with MyHeritage.
The names seem partly to disappear in the FTB as well, and I have reentered the names so many times that this is no fun anymore.
Can you both please check what languages you have set for your tree in Family Tree Builder?
Please go to the Tools menu > Languages.
Note that there are three options here, the Display language, Primary Language and Secondary Language. You will need to have the appropriate languages selected.
If you originally entered your data in one language, and no longer have that language selected as one of your data entry languages, then you will not see that information that you entered in that original language.
If you would like your information to be in a different language than what you originally entered it in, then select the original language as your primary data language, and the new one as the secondary one. Then go to Tools menu -> Translation Wizard to translate the names to the Secondary Language. Why must you do this? The original entry of data for the Primary Language must be “translated” or converted into the Secondary Language. The Translation Wizard is a fast and effective way to do so.
The languages are set to Norwegian, same and English
For the reason of two languages, there are two columns in the person sheet. It seem so unnecessary that I must type every name twice, or use Copy-Paste, since the takeover arrows are greyed out (mostly). Normally, there is no name translation between plain european languages.
The main thing is that I actually do fill in both columns before publishing.
Originally, my wife started the page in Norwegian and German, but I copied the data and changed the languages and the family name to Skevik. Now I cannot get rid of the original name Vold as a selection alternative to look at, and I suspect the Skevik file is dual since twice the name count is reported. Since the takeover, I have kept the languages N-s-E in all the work. (In experimenting on different computers (because of the disappearance), it happened that the persons were one-column only.) I have noticed that missing names often are on one of the columns only, but it varies from person to person which column is suddenly missing. I am so confused.
What also happened was that the online system logs me in as Beate, whatever I do. Even if I log in as Kjell, sometime later the system re-logs me in as Beate.
Before putting a lot of work into changing names again (please understand that I tried this a lot and want to be fairly sure that it will work before I do it again).
So before I start working on this, please help me to sort out the other issues:
*Login as Kjell permanently (and acceptance that I may change the data).
*Remove the Vold part permanently
*Check for and mend eventual dual Skevik data
Then I would have a straight system to try renaming my relatives in.
What is possible to integrate into the new Version of FTB???
What is the relase date?
1) Synchronice FTB to Website and Website to FTB for datas, fotos, documents, storys, links, …
2)Fusion of two (same) person/trees with different datas.
3) When I edit or add on the online tree there is a message after on the startpage who says what I’ve updated (person), but when I change or add person whith FTB on the startpage there is only the message: there is a new version of the tree online.
4) When I have to enter the same fact for more than one person, can I make “copie & paste” of the fact.
5) Adding links to person and sources.
6) Will it be possible in the future to make the datas “Privat (do not publish to site)” for cause of death, contact or for all others entries, so that I can choose what I will make private or not.
7) Is smart research and MyHeritage.com Research the same? When can I use the MyHeritage.com Research with the firefox browser.
8) Unmarried Parents
I like the idea of “FishMan”:
Plus (for unmarried couples); NEW!!!
Unmarried (heart) solid line (replaces partners)
Ex-Partners (broken heart) dashed line
Other(friends symbol) dashed line (this covers affairs, etc)
This may be a newb question, but I didn't see the feature. Is it possible to print a timeline report based on calendar day rather than year? I'd like to compile several events that happened on a given day. There could be a filter to select types of events, too. For instance if you wanted to make a "Birthday" calendar for births or "rememberance" calendar to organize deaths.
When I click the marriage Edit function I can tab to children. I would like to select the child, hit enter, and it take me to that record rather than just sit there.
Family Tree Maker allows one to 'grab' a person on the display and drag them to new parents.
You have no way to combine duplicate entries. Simply a list is very poor. Maybe a Fix It is needed.
I recommend your program to all of my family and friends. Keep up the good work, even though it is still VERY rough around the edges.
Finally, I clicked on Upgrade and instead of going through screens to say I wanted to do it, what level, or if at all, it IMMEDIATELY, WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, CHARGED MY CREDIT CARD AND DID THE UPGRADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is unacceptable and a very shoddy practice.
