If I pay Heritage.com for a two year Premium Subscription, why can I not find any of your Research Results that DOES NOT require me to also pay them for access to the data. There should be some results that are free. I have found NONE. Maybe there should be a statement in the ad for an " Upgrade" that states, "Beware, there are NO free results".
One thing to keep in mind when comparing MyHeritage.com Research to other genealogy search tools, is that we actually care about your genealogy research, instead of focusing on how to make a profit selling you genealogy data. Other commercial data providers rarely provide you with search results beyond the scope of data they own or sell. We provide you with information regardless of whether it is found in records from non-profit organizations, libraries, or even one of our competitors.
When you start a search at MyHeritage.com Research you are really searching all the great online genealogy resources on the web, including Ancestry.com. Please note that in some cases, upgrading your account will allow you to get the links to the results, but, you will be requested to pay for the results. For example, if you get results from Ancestry.com, you will see the link at MyHeritage, but then you will be asked to pay at Ancestry to see the actual results.
That's just not right. There should be some searches that do not require another payment or membership to another site. It's like selling me a car and telling me I need to pay extra for the tires if I want to drive it.
It just searches the internet. For free stuff Irecommend https://www.familysearch.org/ and http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/. The latter only has family trees that people have submitted, so it's no more trustworthy than what you may find here. Familysearch has trees, but also has a lot of transcribed documents. Some even have pictures of census records and other documents. I have also found a lot through http://www.findagrave.com/. Sometimes you hit the mother lode with that, and sometimes you find nothing.
Is there any way of forcing an exact search? I want to search for John Brabyn MILLS but I get 1000's of results and I haven't the time or energy to trawl through the results in lots of 50. Most other sites provide for exact only matches or at least provide a date and place for the events to be entered and searched for.
Believe or not, not all the world uses Internet Explorer! You have added a number of features to the site, but still I cannot use research tool as I have a Mac. So I can't see why I would even think of actually paying for a premium membership when I'm so limited from using the research to build my tree.
I always have this prevailing thought on traditional beliefs regarding death. As much as I wanted to discover many things about it, I couldn't be able to do so because of this certain fear I have inside. I believe that the answer to mysteries of why do people die have not yet been revealed. As such, I also get intrigued of burial and the different beliefs associated with religion and spirituality. Rituals have varied broadly with time and place, and have often mixed directly with religious perception. They provide critical insight into cultures, as well as making for interesting reading. For instance, he Muslim religion has a very clear set of protocols for dealing with the deceased. The body must be placed on its sides and washed with warm water and soap, generally by a member of the same sex, with the final washing having scented water. There must be an odd number of washings (a trend against odd numbers is also visible in the Hindu faith), some of the stomach's must be pushed out, and the teeth and nose must be cleaned on the outside as a form of ablution (spiritual cleansing). Then the body is dried, perfumed, and wrapped in white cloth. Burial prayers are then said facing Mecca before a silent procession takes the corpse to its burial, where everyone shares in filling the grave with soil and a second pit with bricks while saying additional prayers. On the other hand, a lot is known about Egyptian burial. Thanks to the attractiveness of the pyramids that served as tombs for their kings. The bodies were treated with spices, herbs and chemicals so that they became mummies rather than decomposing. The corpses were then placed in cotton cloth wrappings and put inside of a wooden case that was put inside of another case that was decorated with details of their life and a mask of their face. This was then placed in a coffin that was put in a sarcophagus. However, the bodies of poor people were treated less elaborately, but on the other hand cats, sacred animals, were mummified. The powder of mummies was sold in the Middle Ages by apothecaries. Mummies were also produced in Peru and Mexico.
From Fateful Pepsi Commercial Soon to Become LifeGem Diamond?? isn't very interesting?? I have read this great article that LifeGemwho is turning Michael Jackson’s hair into diamonds
When executive producer Ralph Cohen scooped up the charred hair Michael Jackson lost in the filming of the now-infamous Pepsi commercial, he had no idea that he was saving an important piece of history.
Cohen, executive producer for the Pepsi commercial, was among the first to reach Jackson when he was set on fire. Cohen threw his jacket over Jackson’s head to help extinguish the flames. As Jackson was being rushed off the set and to the hospital, Cohen instinctively, picked up the charred lock of hair and put it in his pocketâ€“ where it remained undisturbed for 25 years until Jackson’s death last month.
Back in 2007 LifeGem collaborated to successfully create diamonds from Beethoven’s hair.
They are specialize in creating diamonds from locks of hair. Our plan is to give people an opportunity to own a diamond made from Michael Jackson’s DNA,they are currently evaluating Jackson’s hair sample to determine how many diamonds can be created. This will be a limited collection and they anticipate great interest.
Hi everyone. I'm a newbie member in this forum. I'm looking forward to learn more here with every post and I will be sharing some thoughts too. It's my pleasure to be here and hoping to have a great stay. See you around then. Thanks and have a nice day=)
- Change "who I am" in my tree. (when I created the tree for the first time, I created another tree than mine, now that mine is also there it always shows the other one first because it's suppose to be "me").
- Doing so, I realised that I do not see the Sosa numbers? Is there a way to define the Sosa-Stradonitz #1, the have the Sosa numbers displayed easily?
- I'm surprised that when I create the parent of somebody who died 300 years ago, I still have to click "Deceased". Is there a way to default to "Dead" if say they are ascendent of somebody who was born aver a 100 years?
