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....
I want to read postings in this thread (FTB) BUT the thread shows only postings OLDER than 19 days. In the thread list I choose SHOW for a posting made by Daniel Harris a day ago but the thread opens the list shows me postings started 51 days ago (last answer 33 days ago) Number two from the top was started 67 days ago and last answer 18 days ago!!!
This kind of error messages points to a function/subroutine call inside the code of the FTB. For instance, an argument of a subroutine call could be 'nothing' and the subroutine needs a number, or anything like this.
This is something for firstname.lastname@example.org - with all documents (error description, screen snapshots, etc.), You know.
Unfortunately, when creating my Family Tree, i did not start with myself. Is there a way to re-order ID numbers? I want to appear as 1, my wife 2 and so on... Hate to have to create another Family Tree from scratch. THANKS
Hi there. I'm trying to install Family Tree Builder on my computer. I run the install and it installs just fine with no issues. But when I open the application to use it I get the following error: Cannot Create folder (and then lists the path)
Once I click "ok" the program closes itself. Same response every time. Any insight? I've tried uninstalling and re-installing to different program file locations, no difference.
I have created an extensive family tree several years ago and since have a new computer. I would desperately like to edit my tree (to remove ex husband and relatives) but I cant even get the program to open.
Can you please check whether you have any network security or communications software running on your computer, or on the network which your computer is a part of? This may include firewalls, proxy servers, anti-viruses and/or routers. The presence of such software or hardware may cause problems communicating with MyHeritage.com, unless they are properly configured.
Such software or hardware are more commonly found in office environments than at home.
I hope this has helped you resolve the issue however should this not be the case then please contact the support team via the contact form and provide as much information as you possibly can. One of our friendly representatives will contact you at the first available moment.
I had the same error message "cannot create folder" when starting Family Tree Builder the very first time after install. In my case, it showed \\192.168.0.12\Documents\MyHeritage. But then the software closes itself, no chance given to point it to a different folder.
My Documents are configured to point to my NAS, ie, a standard home setup where my docs are stored on a network disk, not on my local disk. I have no firewall or security issues, all other softwares are quite happy.
I had to create a shortcut folder on my C drive that points to my network folder, and then modified the file Tom Oome talks about (C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\MyHeritage\Cfg) and add the line:
Unfortunately at the moment we do not have a Mac supported version of the Family Tree Builder Software. However good news is that we are currently testing a Mac version and hope to have this up and running in the very near future.
Until then you are able to work directly via your online family site using a web browser.
I select View -> Places and then select a place. Pressing the "Where used" causes FTB to freeze, no cpu and no i/o. There is no other way out than to kill FTB. This problem started a couple of weeks ago and always happens. I don't know if there has been a program update lately. I am running Windows 8.1.
