I want to delete a branch of a tree. Ideally I would just delete the top person and it would ask if I'd like to delete all its descendents. The only way I can currently find is that I can delete each person one-by-one. But this branch has hundreds of people in it.
I've considered saving the branches of the tree I want as gedcom, then deleting the entire tree and then recreating it with the same name by either FTB or uploading the saved branches tot he site. Which is time consuming but much less so. But I don't know whether this will even work. Will it? I also wonder what then happens to other members I've shared the tree with, plus any FamilyTreeDNA links or info that might be in there.
Sorry to say you have found one of the major short-commings of MyHeritage, you cant prune your tree, unless you remove one leaf at a time
If you do it with another genealogy program, you loose all previous "Shared" connections, and any other links that you may have set up.
If you want to maintain all your previous (hard earned) connections I am afraid it is a case of deleteing one leaf at a time,, always starting with the most recent children, then the spouse, then that person, then the youngest descedant of the next sibling, and so on.
Every time I try to do a sync with my online tree it tells me a sync is already in progress. However, the sync log shows the last sync started 3 days ago and completed successfully. Any attempt to disrupt the sync or modify the settings gives an error that the operation cannot be done while a sync is in progress. I checked the online tree and my recent updates in FTB have not been updated in the online tree. This has been going on for a few hours, which I assume is much longer than a sync of a tree with less than 1000 names should take.
Resolved this myself. After clicking on the link to show the status of the synch I found it was waiting for me to acknowledge that one of my files did not complete during the synch process. Once I acknowledged that, the synch completed and a subsequent synch worked as expected.
I have an issue with dates that have month April. I attached a picture about the problem.
If something happened in April, it doesn't show on the person's info card and doesn't count the years either. It doesn't matter if I write the month with numbers or letters, I've even chosen it from the calendar.
It seems, the program doesn't recognise dates with April. The same problem appears, when I just give year and month but not day. It doesn't recognises that either.
I did not know where to put this, just wanted to inform you about that my ZoneAlarm found a Trojan in a program download from original source - in Family Tree builder. It is removed already at my computer so I don't have problems with it anymore (will see if the program still works, I know sometimes these warnings are fake). Just thought you should know and check it out, just not a very reliable feeling if something like this happens.
Could you please let me know which version of Family Tree Builder you downloaded? You can check it by clicking on "Help" in the top menu bar and then on "About Family Tree Builder". A window will open and you will see the number of the version and build.
Meanwhile, we have checked on our end and we didn't see any problem. We believe it might be a 'fake' alert as sometimes antivirus softwares might not recognise a specific file during the Family Tree Builder installation process and alert the user.
Nonetheless, we request from you the version above mentioned so we can analyse the case more thoroughly.
Unfortunately this didn't give me the information I wanted. I want to edit details of the fact photo, like Title, Date and Place. I've only been able to do this for the Fact photo after it is uploaded to the website, on the website. I am able to edit details of Virtual Cemetery photos and General photos associated with a person using the family tree builder program, but the only thing I'm able to do for Fact photos using the program is add or delete them.
I have found that if you keep an 'Album' especially for facts and upload load your image of your fact in FTB to this "Facts" album, though you cannot edit the details in the facts tab, but if you select the photos icon at the top of the screen, you can then select the "Facts" album, then the image (that will have the same name as the file you imported) double clicking on it will alow you to edit the Title, Date, and Place.
Clicking the back icon an the top of the screen will alow you to continue entering facts about that person
