Also now my delima is smart matching I have 3 questions - hoping you can help :)
I would like to work soley online because I have a mac and ftb is not compatible, but I read that I need to use FTB to merge smart matching.... so I got on my old PC and exported my online tree and imported it to FTB...
1.Is there a way to merge smart matches online?
2. or do I have to constantly go back and forth export/importing from the online tree to FTB in order to have my ftb be up to date with the changes I make online? Is there a way to synch this process?
3. I exported my most recent family tree gedcom to FTB and published it- but on FTB it is not saying there are any smart matches --however, when I was signed on it said I have a couple thousand..... do you know how to fix this?
I have recently went through the steps to download a GENCOM file of my online myheritage information to use in the family builder. The website generated a email link and sent it to my inbox for export. I click on the file to open it and my computer says my internet explorer blocked it. I click on the option to download the file and all that pops up is a Google copyright and no information to download.
Is there anything I can do to correct this to DL the file?
I am one of the victims from verwandt. de switching to myheritage. My tree is online in myheritage.com but not in the family tree builder. How can I load it from the website in the builder ??? And second question: I understand that my doings in the family tree builder will upoaded to myheritage, BUT what happens with the doings of me and my 76 family users in myheritage, will the changes be uploaded to the family tree builder ????
Thanks for the answer, I also needed to replace my primary photo. However that process is not very intuitive. It would be much better if you could replace/change your photo with something that is already uploaded. Take a look at how easy Facebook makes it.
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.
