What does "a quick response to questions" mean for Premium members? I have paid a two years fee and have been waiting three days for something more than an automated reply saying that MyHeritage will "get right on to it".
My question concerns use of the Research facility.
My PC is running the latest version of Java, Version 6 Update 30.
When I attempt a search I get a window that says,
"My Heritage.com Research requires the Java plug-in from Sun Microsystems, inc.
Java is available on your computer, but its version is outdated and cannot be used.
Click OK below to be taken to the Sun site to install the most recent version of Java.
This is required just once, and only takes a few minutes.
After installing Java, return to My Heritage.com and run your search again."
When I click, "OK", I am taken to a screen that invites me to download and install Version 6 Update 30!!
All old copies of Java were uninstalled before I installed Version 6 Update 30.
I do not understand how to find copies of documents to verify research. I thought when I took out a subscripton I would be able to see copies of documents. But all the seach seems to do is show me links to other paid sources. Using Ancestry.com and I think others you can find documents. Why does myheritage not offer that?
To answer your questions, a subscription to World Vital Records gives you full access to research the over 4 billion names on the website. This includes images and indexes of birth certificates. If there is a particular area of interest, feel free to visit the card catalog page that will guide you through the databases available by country.
The newspaper images on the website are included in your subscription. You can download and save a pdf to your computer or print the image from the website. This is a great way to find family stories and share what has been written about your ancestors with your living family members.
There is one charge to join and your membership will give you access to the entire collection on the website. There is one instance where you may run into an additional fee. If you are researching records in the US Federal Census for 1930 or 1860 the indexes that have been provided by fold3 are free of charge to view. The images for those two years of the US Census and some military records are housed on the fold3 website. Therefore viewing the images does require a subscription to fold3. That is the only instance where you will run into an extra fee.
I hope that this answers your questions and concerns. Please be sure to let us know if you have any additional questions, or if there is anything that we can assist you with in the future.
A subscription to World Vital Records is in addition to the MyHeritage subscription. So MyHeritage does not give you the records. Whereas, I belive, a single subscription to Ancestry does. I do not have the funds to pay for numerous sites. So I need to take out a subscription to the site that gives the most ... and that does not look like MYHeritage to me.
I bought the family tree builder software, initially using the basis, free plan - and upload 250 people to one site. I then decided to upgrade to premium and the system seems to have created a new site, with the other 300 people in it. Clearly I just want one site/tree with all my people in it!!!
I have tried deleteing various trees, and reuploading from FTB, but that does not seem to work. I also exported the gedcom for one site, and importing it to the other. But it seems to have created a tree within the site, and there may be duplicates!!
It is possible to genrate a chart of your tree and save it in JPEG format in our genealogy program, Family Tree builder.
If you restore your tree in the program (in File> Restore project> Restore from online family site), you can create a chart and then save it as a JPEG image. You will also see an option to save it as a PDF.
I found an online tool for you that can convert a PDF file to TIFF format. You can read about it in this link: http://www.pdf-to-tiff.com/. I hope this helps you.
Did you ever get an answer to your question? I have a similar issue with mine, everytime I click publish, it brings up the Family Tree Publisher dialog and claims the site doesn't exist, however if I press Publish Now, it finds the site and publishes.
I've tried removing the remove publish for this site option and re-adding it, however same issue. Does any one know how to resolve this?
I get the same Site does not exist message. I changed the name of the tree online, but I guess not on the desktop version. When I do tell it to publish, it updates the online tree with the changed name... confused!
Is it possible to work on the same project at the same time?
I would like to gather 4 or 5 family members to a research weekend. Can all 5 work on the same project on the same time or should we make one each and the merge them afterwords. I think the Find Dublicates function is not that good.
If you want to print your entire tree, we have an All-in-one chart that can be printed from Family Tree Builder, but this feature is only available for Premium users.
For non Premium users, there is no single report or chart that will print all the people in the family tree in Family Tree Builder. If you are not a premium user, our best suggestion would be to do something like this:
Use the Descendants or Ancestors chart (Fan, Horizontal or Vertical) to create a visual chart for each major branch in the tree. You can adjust the style and color of the chart.
Save the chart as a PDF when you are finished. This will allow you better control over the printing options. For example, if you want to take the charts to a printing shop to have them professionally printed on large size paper it will be easy to print to one page.
Create Book Reports for major branches in the tree. The Book Report is very nicely laid out with photos of everyone, includes indirect relations and lots of other fun info.
Just downloaded the free version of Myheritage and it is amazing. The one problem that I'm having is that I was adopted in 1941 and my birth mother whom I've just found, and is about to turn 97. I just turned 70. She got married in 1950 and had a son and daughter. Can I display this in the family tree showing my adoption and linking my family to my grandfather etc.?
