Is there a way I can publish a whole album from FTB on to my family site? I know there is the option to publish all of them and that I can also pick individual pictures to publish.
That second option is the closest to what I want to do, but it would just take so long. I have the pictures I'd want to publish all in one album in FTB. Is there way I can just publish pictures in one album? Or at the very least sort them by album when I choose which individual pictures to publish?
Hi all can anyone tell me please, if we upgrade to Premium and pay the extra e24 for the CD can we then continue to build our tree on say a separate computer without being connected to the 'net or to the myHeritage site. ATM the free software download allows us to store and build only when connected to the net'. We have a very unreliable internet connection and it would be great to be able to add people etc to our tree offline.
Yes, you can build your tree on FTB as a stand alone. You DON'T have to be connected to the internet to use FTB. I have been using it for about 3 or 4 years without any problems. Just make sure you save ypur work to a folder on your computer. I am doing 12 families and all my data is saved to a dedicated external hard drive, and a memory stick for backup/restore.
What makes you say the software download allows you to store & build only when connected to the internet?
I installed FTB from download on a relatives computer about 2 weeks ago, and he is not having any problems.
Are you uploading to a site on MyHeritage? This is MAYBE where the internet connection comes into play. Are you building the details on FTB THEN trying to upload? If so why don't you use FTB then upload your info say, every month or so.
As I said above I have been using FTB for 3 or 4 years, and DON'T use MyHeritage to publish to the internet as I have my own personal web site. There have been no problems.
Hi Ian, thanks for your speedy reply. We have only just gone on FTB - about a week - and it is good but expensive to go premium. I just wanted somewhere to store and build my tree. The site is brill for that. I will give what you recommend a go and see what happens. Good luck with your research! Happy huntine x
Your site is currently masked because you have exceeded the basic limit of a family site (250 people). You have two family trees, one with 126, and one 127 people, which does go over the limit.
I have extended your limit for the next month, so that this won't be a problem for now.
If you decide not to upgrade, but you remove a few people, so that your site has under 250 people on it, then your site will remain active and accessible to you and your family site members. The only limitation is that you won't be able to add more individuals to your family tree. You can still add photos, news articles and communicate with your family members. Birthday reminders will still be sent as well.
I try to rename some of my albums on site with no succsess.
1- I rename the album in FTB and publish. The album name online does not update. Then I try to rename the online album (Photos > Find > Edit details) to match the new album name in FTB. After publishing, the online album takes back it's old name, not matching the new album-name set in FTB.
2- I delete the respective album from site (Photos > Find > Delete album) and republish from FTB, the result is that the deleted album reappears with the old name but not matching the new album-name set in FTB.
Is there any other solution than deleting all albums and photos from the site?
Another question: Can you confirm that deleting a photo in FTB is not supposed to delete the published photo online?
Thanks for trying. This behaviour applied to all albums I tried to rename, but now I consider this partially solved:
I found a workaround with creating new albums in the FTB-project, and then moving the images to the new albums. After publishing, the old albums would still remain online, but manual delete removed the old duplicate album. The new albums were now available for editing.
I'm a new user of FTB and MyHeritage and I have a question of which strategy to use when building my family tree.
I have three main branches I want to build, my fathers side, my mothers side and my wifes side. My idea is that it will be more "manageble" to create them as three projects in FTB and then link them together as "one" tree on the MyHeritage Web site.
1.Is it possible to do that and is it a good strategy?
2. Is it described somewhere how I do it?
Please let me know if there are better strategies and where I best can learn more.
Well that worked, I will write the dammned thing out again. Actually my THIRD try.
This is a general look at my particular situation, and is nothing to do with the way the MyHeritage System works.
If I were to do a family tree for either of my children, or their children, it would be fine to do separate trees, because there are no other marriages between my wife's family and mine; and the same with my children and their partners. All of the families are quite separate,
But I can't do that for my own family as it is very different to that. There are many marriages between members of my father's family and members of my mother's family (and similar situations further back in the tree too) even though there was no family relationship between the partners (but both are related to me).
And this is further confused by a quite a few marriages between cousins. So If, say, I had separate trees for my father's family and for my mother's family, these relationships between people in the tree, and between me and them,would not show.
How long should it take to publish my most recent updated tree? I save, then click Publish. It shows Publish in Progress ... forever. How do I know if it's working, or if it's hung up. It's been over 30 minutes. Shouldn't it be published by now? It continues to say the last publish date was August 4th so it doesn't seem to be publishing today (August 9th). ??
I an helping a cousin with starting out using FTB. He has quite a few names from adding a previous GEDCOM file, and I have supplied him with some more info on another GEDCOM file, however there are quite a few duplicates when the second file is loaded. What we want to know is how can these duplicates be deleted. When the second file loaded it showed what was supposed to be duplicates (which they are as the surnames are in lower case, whereas the originals are uppercase). How can the names that showed in the list of duplicated files be removed?
Is it done the same way as a normal delete? If so the only problem with that is the record numbers can't be reused! I think maybe the developers could surely find a way to reuse deleted record numbers!
Our software doesn't currently merge duplicates. If you merged two gedcom files that included duplicate people they will be added to the merged project as duplicate. You will need to delete them manually. You can use the following FAQ posts which will help you handling the duplicates:
...I see that we have the wonderful ability to use many languages. But I see and I understand that the input info is always fixed! :(
I want my new family tree to be in Greek and my family Names as well. I also want somebody that doesnt read Greek, could read my Greek Name input to English text. Is that possible? Example my Greek Name "ΧΡΗΣΤΟΣ" could easy autoform to "XRISTOS" or much better hearing alike "CHRISTOS" !!!
How do you suggest to input my txt names, to be true bilingual?
1) You can enter in the name in both Greek text and in English, and that way it will always be shown in both for all users that visit your site.
2) You can create your tree in the software, in Family Tree Builder, and you can make two data input languages, both Greek and English. If you have almost of all of the people in your tree entered in both languages, then when you publish your tree to your site, you will have an English and a Greek tree.
