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.?
I'm not sure that this solves my problem. My mother had me in 1941, she was not married. She got married in 1950 then had 2 children which are my half brother and sister. Does what you tell me solve the problem?
Hi Derry, you said you downloaded the Free Version of MyHeritage, I will assume you mean Family Tree Builder.
I will assume you have created your Family Tree with your adoptive Parents as your Existing parents and your adoptive brothers and sisters as your natural brothers and sisters.
Right click on yourself and in the box that opens move to parents and another block will open, select add parents and then add your mother and if you know the name of your natural father you can add him as well. (If you don't know his name just leave all fields blank by Father.
Save changes by selecting OK and go through the process again. Right click on yourself and move to parents. This time select manage parents. Ensure Your Adoptive parents are listed as Adoptive and Your Natural Mother is selected as Natural.
Save changes by selecting OK
You will now have the relationships as you want them I am sure.
Please note: On the tree you will appear to be in two places. Do not delete one of these entries as it is not a duplicate entry, it is a mirror image of you with both Natural and Adoptive Parents and if you delete the one the other one is also gone
I am creating the tree based on my natural NOT adopted parents. I just found my mother who is 97 in November and found I have a half brother and sister. She got married 10 years after having me. I found out my real grandparents and their 7 children of which one was my mother. I am building the tree based on my new found family not my adopted family. Yes it is Family Tree Builder I am using. Maybe I have to start over and build the tree again? Many thanks for your help so far.
Did as you said and it showed my adopted parents and my natural birth mother. The problem is my mother married Harold Low 10 years after having me. It shows my natural parents with him in it. I don't know my natural father. I want to leave Low in the family tree to show my half brother and sister and families. Thanks again for your help.
I just found out that you can do research on My Heritage. I have been going through other sites and copy and pasting. I found out because my sister has a PC and she has a spot under the search box that she can click on and find search areas. On a mac that spot is not there. (see attachment) How do I do research on a Mac?
