We don't have Sosa numbers in MyHeritage, you can view the relationship between you and any person in your family tree by clicking on the person in your tree (the relationship will be displayed on the left side of the screen).
You can also display the relationships between you and the individuals in your tree by creating family reports.
Regarding the "mark as deceased" issue – If you edit a person's birth date that was 120 years ago or more – the person will be automatically marked as deceased.
In the Family Tree Builder you also have a "Check Foe Deceased People" feature, which allows you to automatically mark all the ancestors of a deceased person as deceased for example.
The website is Baffo Family Website and an example is Robert S Ranno who is listed as relative instead of cousin, once removed. The vast majority of the people are referred to as relative instead of the actual relationship.
Also, some relationships state someting similar to : "Related by marriage: 6 steps"
Hi Esther, I have 2 separate family trees. In one family tree (Rapisarda), when I look to invite people, the relationship will show second cousin, once removed whereas in the Baffo website, a person with the same relationship is shown as relative. Your answer did not correctly address my problem. Please tell me how to fix this so that the actual relationship is diplayed.
I have found the problem (where the bug lies)- I see that in your Baffo Website, you have a step great grandmother Lucia Baffo. The way that the system deals with her descendants in relation to you to consider them as relatives.
We understand that this is most definitely not ideal, and I will make sure to pass on your suggestion to the appropriate department for further consideration.
I am trying it through IE. Nothing works. I have a free trial on MyAncestry and in 2 days I was able to find relatives up to 4 generations back. On here, nothing. No smart matches, no research results. I have sent 3 support requests and don't get an answer to anything. I want my money back.
A member is copying all my published information word for word and photographs and claiming them as his own, then selling the information on his website. I have asked him if he will trade information with me, but he replies "Only at the price listed on my website". I have done a great deal of footwork (literally) to obtain much of my information, and I think his attitude is unfair to say the least.
If My Heritage would add a watermark option for photographs this would save the problem of people just taking and not asking first, it's just rude. I no it's good to share and i dont have a problem with this after all the people who take the photo's are probaly family but they can be used in other ways as well even fraud . why is it that people today just think they can take what ever they want and not have the curtiousy to ask.
At this point in time, I would suggest that you write the user, and request that information be credited to you, or if there is personal information that you would like removed, then please request that.
Hi Esther--I am a great advocate of info sharing and I am always very generous with mine, whether I get credit or not. The trouble in this case seems to be that the person is trying to SELL the information that s/he has taken from others' websites. I don't blame Jeannette for being upset about that. But I guess it's a risk you take with putting anything on-line. And on reflection--if someone wants to try a make a living gathering information and seeing if someone else wants to buy it...well, there are a lot of professions doing just that. I guess Jeannette could make her tree completely private and so minimize 'stealing', but that would defeat a major purpose of a program like this. I would love to see how other myHeritage members weigh in on this.
I have no luck using Internet Explorer on my mac. I love myheritage for family tree building, but I am at a point where I need to research and now I can't get anywhere without using internet explorer. When will this be upgraded? I see lots of posts regarding this going over the last two years! I am now regretting my update to Premium. Please help us!
Actually, I do not generally able to use it because I am on firefox or chrome, but last night I tried it on IE just for the heck of it. It really didn't seem that helpful. It linked to a site which said no matches found or something like that as soon as i clicked on view. It also gave me a jewish heritage site almost everytime which wasn't at all helpful.
