I leave these names in double quotes and do not use the Alias facility. Because? The aliases do not show in the Family Tree Builder name card, (and I think not in the web name); you do not see the Aliases unless you go to a special menu item. I need to see, and have others see, the alias when they see the person's name. In my family it is most often used to indicate that they are known by the second given name. Like me, Athol Geoffrey "Geoff" Stewart.
I see you hide in the background- I think you might serve the customer base better if you were seen as a viable, contactable and concerned CEO- which undoubdtedly you are.
Your professional profile is daunting and your abilty to lead is obvious- but your lack of input and admiinistraion is detrimental to the overall outlook that myheritge portrays.
Surley you can see the annoyed and the upset users- and it seems to me that the cure iis to delete the negative posts-
If your business model was accurate - you should be able to defend the negatives and show that myhertiage IS a good clean company with honset and decent morals- instead the organization looks a bit shady and bit crooked and bit " on the take" .
For much the same reasons, when I enter the name of a woman married more than once, I do not use the Former Name function in the Names menu of the Main section of the FBT name card. It does not show as part of the name in the Family Tree view of the card. I always;
change the former marriage status to Widowed or Divorced (or in one case, Annulled);
enter the latest name as the married name whether or not it is the family name of the husband I am currently interested in; and enter the former name (s) so that it shows thus
Eliza Ann Cousins (formerly Droscher) (born Brookman).
It gives a simple reference to the other spouse (s). Which is incredibly important. Maybe while you are making the change so that Aliases on the name card are visible in the main name.............??
I have just upgraded to FTB version 7 (free) from version 6. The tree view is no longer available in the selection view in the left pane. Only the people view is available. The tree view was very useful to quickly navigate through a family tree. How do I restore this function or how else can I get this easy view in list form. I am tempted to go back to version 6, but didn't keep the executable. Any help would be appreciated.
I first got a response from the help desk to install an update to v7, but this did not fix the issue. I was then told by the help desk to view my tree through the web interface to be able to see the tree view, but I did not want to do that. I wanted a solution that did not need me to publish my tree. So I have uninstalled v7 and reverted back to v6. All good now. Got the tree view back.
On the Smart match screen that shows the number of Smart matches for XXX people, beside each person it shows the number confirmed, I'd like it to also show the number rejected.
When I click one of the names on the Smart match, it brings me to the match report for that person. When I select return in your top menu it returns me to some other place in the list of smart matches. It should return to the same person that you selected.
On the Smart match screen for a person if you right click on the proposed match it brings up a selection box of 5 options. I'd like to add a rejected selection. If the birth dates and birth place are not close I want to reject it faster than going through another box where a mouse move is required.
I had installed FTB a few days back on my Win8 PC and actually worked with it. This morning I realised I could not find it on the Apps list (although it was visible on the control panel) I decided to uninstall and then reinstall. effect is now it will crash when I try to run (and it's still not visible under the apps)
I have problems on my family tree and I have updated my family tree, however, the save and sync option are not highlighted. How do I save or sync changes if its not available as an option? I have done it twice. First time, the program got an error and closed. It did not save. The second time, I closed the project and reopened it and it didn't save the changes. I can't keep trying to fix it and not have an option to save or sync it.
I have the SYNC disabled in the Sync Settings, but I do not see any place in options, elsewhere, that will allow me to simply have FTB v7.0 Log Out. I do not want it logged into my online site, because the auto Syncing is too permissive. I know there are manual settings to disable this, etc., but the SYNC is set up to prefer Auto Syncing and will attempt to do it as long as I am logged in from FTB. All one has to do is accidentally push the Sync button. Thanks
To break the link between FTB and your family site, go to the Sync > Sync settings menu,
And click the "remove sync" button.
This will mean that your project will not by synced online, and even if you accidentally click the Sync button, all that will happen is that FTB will ask you to which site you want to sync (since the connection was broken).
There are over 19,000 people in the tree, However, I have a free website and the documentation says that a free website is limited to 250 individuals. Why would it any longer with 19,000 than with 250 if only 250 are uploaded anyway?
The search function does not seem to work correctly, e.g. Type birth, matches condition below, and Date matches Mar 3 1917 gives dozens of incorrect matches. For example one of them has a birth date of Oct 6, 1928. There is actually only one correct answer in my database.
New installation of FTB 18.104.22.16805 and freshly imported GEDCOM.
