Re: Manual Sync. Manual sync isn't deciding not to sync, or deciding when to sync, AND then waiting for sync to finish. Manual sync is seeing each record that will be synced and manually confirming to sync or not sync that record. i.e. Manual confirmation of the record change before it is made, rather than the software automatically making the choice of what changes will be made.
Re: home page list of changes. My home page does not list *all* changes made. It lists a summary only. E.g. A family member changed w, x, y, z and 18 other people in the family tree. If the person changes more than four records on any given day, then the list of changes a summary only. I am not aware of how to look at all the changes that were made.
Suggestions:- If each change was time-stamped (as it is in FTB) and if a log of changes was kept, and made available to site managers, then there would be an easy way to review all changes made to the site AND the person making the changes AND the day and time of the changes.
This is not so much a complaint as an observation and a request... but MH seems to be built more for a single person editor than for a collaboration between multiple editors. Helping out family where there are mulitple people collaborating would not be hard to do - if MH could only see the need and have the desire to do it. Keeping track of changes would be the first big step in this direction - who changed, what and when. Showing site manages a log of these changes would be the next big improvement. I suspect you already record the first bit, so it is probably only a matter of making a change-log available to site managers. ....AND, putting the FTB time-stamp on the bottom of the details panel would be great too! :)
Happens to me too, but for me in most cases it is hanging on 25%....
At 45% it starts uploading new pictures which takes time and remains at 45% for a while (if lots of new pics),
but I can notice in task manager's network activity that pictures are uploading once this is done again % strts increasing
(and between 72% and 78% it sometimes goes very slow)
Didn't face this issue (except 45% stall which is 'normal') until last weeks were it is almost daily occuring. After retrying same or next day it goes on...
Is it related to the tree size?? Did I cross some tresshold?? Or is it unstable/overloaded MH server??
It happens all the time and my tree is over 80,000. Don't worry. Usually I get a sync failed box message. Just try another time. Make sure you do a save to your local disk and keep a seperate backup whenever you can. It has taken me three or four tries at times.
My sister and I have been working on separate trees. We decided to try to merge them into one, but I can't find out how.
I tried to syncronize both trees into one webpage, and I tried to import both trees into one project on FTB. They won't merge, however, they only become two separate trees, even if all the names show up in the same name list on FTB. I tried the "find duplicates" also, but it only gave me a few, and the only option was to "ignore", so that didn't work.
In the end I deleted one of the parallell trees from the web. Then the other one wouldn't sync, so I deleted that one too to see if it would reconnect. It wouldn't. So now my tree isn't on the web anymore, and I am no closer to merging anything with my sister's tree. I guess I am looking at rewriting it all manually. That is, if not anybody here has some good ideas for me?
You will have backup/autosave files of your tree saved to folders somewhere on your computer. Find the MyHeritage Data Folder and in it will see numerous saves of your tree as compressed zip files. Look for the most recent to recover your tree.
You can then upload the tree to the online site again.
To "merge" two trees requires that you import a gedcom, there is no automatic merge of two trees function which you seem to be looking for. You will have duplicates once merged which you must manually resolve and then carry out the normal process of attaching persons and making the connections between the trees. You will also have to manually upload images and docs etc to the persons in the tree. This subject is covered in the FAQ's or if you google the subject. MyHeritage have been promising a better solution for some time but sadly nothing has been sighted or announced.
Bottom line is you will still have your tree on your PC to recover your tree from.
Hi everyone. I have been entering my family information locally on my hard drive using Family Tree Builder. Unfortunately my mother board has failed and I have purchased a new PC. I am using my old hard drive (the one which contains my old program files) as a backup data drive in my new PC.
My question: Can I import my data from my old hard drive into a new installation of Family Tree Builder on my new PC? If so, where is the data file and how can I do this?
On your "old" HD you have a library called MyHeritage Data. Find that library and copy/move it to the NEW HD (copy it first so you till have it as a backup).
Start your FTB, pick "Tools" - "Options" - "General" in the menu, in the column "value" write the path to where you copied the MyHeritage Data library. If you click on the row "Projects direcotry" you will see some ... to the right, click on them and the Microsoft File Explorer will open, use it to find your NEW library, cklick on it and it will automatically be written in the "value" column.
I just downloaded the My Family Tree program and the problem is this: It doesn't allow me to build an individual family tree, or, at least I haven't yet figure out how to do it. I would like to build a tree where there is only me at the bottom and then my parents and my parent's parents etc. above. Now the program forces someone to be with me at the bottom of the tree, for example my wife. So i would like to start building a tree just like in this video: http://vimeo.com/95128706 . Tree which only start from me.
And yeah, English is not my first language so there's no point reminding me that my grammar isn't perfect^^
