This "bug" obvious still exists and I must say that I am embarassed to have fallen for it as well. I cannot search for others' trees and profiles, which is, to be blunt, the ONLY reason I am interested in MyHeritage -- Geni.com does quite nicely with all of the other features.
If this "bug" cannot be fixed, then please give me a full refund. I did not just pay $75 so that I could be asked to pay even more to a website that is using unethical adveritising practices.
I too have encountered this "bug". Every time I ask for the results of a search I'm asked for more money. A very fortuitous bug for my heritage. The only thing I have been able to do with my premium account is confirm other users matches. I'm sorry to say, not really worth all the money I paid in good faith.
Please note that if you search for information on the Super Search while you are logged in with your Premium or PremiumPlus subscription, you can see all MyHeritage.com collections for free. This includes millions of pictures and data contained at Myheritage.com trees.
There are also millions of records coming from external resources and myheritage.com affiliates that you can see by purchasing a data subsription or credits plan. Please note that it is not possible for us to offer the historical data of all external resources for free since some of the historical data comes from partners that require royalties on its use by customers. We do our best to give as much free data as possible, but we also need to consider the business aspect.
Hope this clarifies. Please contact me for further comments or questions.
Hey, do you see me? Why are you ignoring all my questions?? I think, I was holding myself back and did not use any vulgar word, and believe me, it was quite hard, because I hate this behaviour, that MyHeritage is demonstarting.
I've posted screenshot, where is clearly seen, that I am logged on my Premium page, but it still does not work for me! I cannot see any result, all MyHeritage webs included. ALL links from SuperSearch show only linked result that you want another money from me.
No. I am not talking about program and searching on other sites! I am unable to search MyHeritage sites on MyHeritage web, not only foreign sites! The only search that is working now is searching on my own MyHeritage web, I cannot search for other webs on MyHeritage, for other MyHeritage users, etc. as I could e.g. month ago. Everything is now hidden under "Research" section, which gives only unusable results (links to subscription page) instead of showing links to MyHeritage web pages, that satisfy my query. Or where else is hidden this great functionality now? It is still presented as free service on help pages, but this seems to be lie now.
Some other Premium users I asked today told me, that it works for them. So hopefully really some strange bug. For my Premium site, every click on every result shows only this - http://img24.eu/images/ha21iup6.png
My site is mentioned there, so it proves, that I am really logged on my Premium site.
I have looked at the research function a few times and got a little useful information once. But it takes SO long to trawl through so much useless information! Is it possible to narrow one's requests? I think the technical term would be, to use filters.
I am in Australia and so is the area of all my research, except for old-time stuff like ancestors living in England and coming to Australia around the time of the sailing ships or somewhat later. And when I run a research search under the name of someone on my tree I get divorces in England; British officers in India; census results in America.
I don't want ANY of that! So can I please have research that limits itself to a defined category and place and period of time. Births, deaths, divorces, and marriages (etc.), Australia, 1900 to 2000, say. Census details, Australia, various years and areas. And there would be some others.It is just not worth spending the time and effort looking through massive amounts of data that cannot be relevant.
Tried it. Got taken to paid sites from MyHeritage and elsewhere. Asked for results for my exact name and got massive amounts of irrelevant material for people with DIFFERENT names especially the second given name. I tried to restrict content to Australia only and was overwhelmed with material from OUTSIDE Australia.
What I need to be able to do is, as an example and not necessarily in this order: Exclude material from outside Australia (would cut out, what, 85% of all material? ) Then be able to specify an exact full name (would probably be the end of the search with what? Nil up to maybe ten probably useful or interesting results?). And be able to narrow the search in other ways depending on exacly each situation.
At the moment the effort involved in getting very little if any useful result seems hard to justify. And yet the whole thing seems to hold such promise, with all the sources searched. We just need to be able to, simply, narrow the search parameters. I would be happy with a system that allowed me to set the guidelines in one 'area', (Country and/or State, for example) then allowed me to search again in the results of the first search with new parameters, (Name, say). I don't understand the workings of software but it seems like this would be far less complex for the software designer, and quite quick and simple for me to use. The old KISS (Keep It Simple S.) maxim.
I'm trying to figuire out what format would be recommanded to make sure the places entered like place of birth, would be well located on the maps. Sometimes it seems that they're well located, sometimes not.
I understand the comas work as field separator, but what should these fields be?
he reason your site and the people in it do not show up in the genealogy site center is that the center hasn't been updated in a while. This is because our developers are currently working very hard on a new enhanced SuperSearch engine, which will be improved and updated. It should be released in about 2-3 motnhs, so stay tuned! It's worth waiting for :)
