There are three different types of trees that you can have on a family site; a Web Tree that was made online, a tree that was imported to your family site using a GEDCOM file, or a tree that was made in Family Tree Builder, and published to your family site.
When you create a family tree in Family Tree Builder and publish it to your family site, you and your members CANNOT edit the tree online.
If you built your tree in Family Tree Builder, each time you would like to make changes to your tree online, edit your tree in Family Tree Builder and then re-publish your family tree to your family site. This will update the previously published tree (with the same name) on your site.
This means that there will never be a question of which changes take precedence, as the tree can only be edited in Family Tree Builder.
If you would like to have a family tree you can edit online, please do the following:
Open your family tree in Family Tree Builder.
Go to File > Export GEDCOM.
Now go to your family site.
Click on Family Tree > Import GEDCOM.
Browse your computer to find the GEDCOM you just created.
Click upload and that’s it!
Now you have a family tree that you can work on online.
**Keep in mind that the Import GEDCOM feature on family sites will not include photos. You’ll have to upload the photos manually through the Photos & Videos page.
If you give your members editing privileges to your family tree, then they can edit person cards in the family tree.
If they wish to update their own profile (not in the tree), they are the only ones that can do so, when logged into their account. This will update their profile, for the view that you will see when you click on their profile as well.
You can edit your family tree on MyHeritage, and these edtis are saved. Changes you do on MyHeritage ARE NOT saved to the Verwant site anymore. That site is read-only, and contains your tree as it was before it was migrated to MyHeriatege. I hope you have a very good timeusing MyHeritage.com. Let me know if you more questions.
It looks as if it finds the largest amount of text that would be in any box, then applies this "one size fits all" to every other person. Consequently, removing the photographs (there aren't any) and reducing the font size will only take you so far. If one or two people have a long name then it is split over 2 lines, and, together with DoB and DoD, all boxes are then 4 lines high.
Suggestion: Allow the user to specify the minimum (default) size of a box and then automatically make the exceptions bigger.
BTW, if you are looking at improving charts, the facility to manually rearrange the boxes would be improved by a "snap-to-grid" option and/or a "nudge by one pixel using arrow keys" for fine tuning.
Hi there, I have some Unknown surnames in my database. If I use UNKNOWN as a surname it disappears after saving the file. When i reopen for another session, it appears in capitals on the card, however when i doubleclick the card to go into facts etc. the surname field is blank. Why does this happen? I can't fix it from the Tools -> Options-> Names-> Empty last name as it only gives the option of blank, ?, -, ---, or Unknown. The same thing happens when I want to use Unknown for Empty first name.
How can i fix this the way I want it, because when I export as a GEDCOM file both the Unknown & UNKNOWN appear as ? and people I send the GEDCOM file to have complained about it
