Compared to Ancestry.com, the online tree in MH has a much slicker home page, and I like that I can customize it and use it to communicate with members.
I haven't seen it documented, I can add colored text and fancy fonts to the page, just by copying from my wordprocessor (Open Office 4) into the Admin editor. Liven up your home page! Check out www.graysgoingback.myheritage.com for some examples.
I've seen some other attractive and interesting home pages and I'd love to start listing them here. If you've got a snazzy, jazzy home page, post it here so we can check it out.
I added a tree to the MyHeritage Website a long time ago, http://www.myheritage.com/site-448993/turtle this is throwing up match after match with my cousin's tree, but I cannot get to it to add/delete/amend it.
I have tried my only other email address that I use, but to no avail. Could you please advise me the way to get back into it?

Hallo, ich hatte vor 2-3 Jahren schon einmal einen Stammbaum angelegt. Dann ist leider die Festplatte kaputt gegangen und meine Daten waren weg. Nun wollte ich das Projekt noch einmal starten, und dabei fiel mir erst auf, das der alte Stammbaum online gesichert ist. Leider gibt es die E-mail Adresse nicht mehr (ich weiss auch nicht mehr welche, die bekannten erkennt das System nicht) und ein Passwort hab ich auch nicht mehr.
Gibt es dennoch eine Möglichkeit das ich an den alten Stammbaum wieder herankomme und nicht alles neu machen muss?
I am new to this Family Tree Builder so very much learning as I go.....but when I first entered family in the Builder it showed the Matches icon on a persons profile, which was great.....but now it is not displaying and has keeps repeating the message that it is updating! This has been happening for 2 days now! I have set up a website also but total fail to get any Smart Matches working.......I would be very grateful if anyone is able to help/suggest anything. I am wondering if I should just deleter the website perhaps?
Hi all I am a premium member and no smart matches for 2 days, I deleted all trees 2 days ago and reloaded a ged com file and no matches at all - Any ideas. I dont get a crown I get the turning circle when I get a match, what is the crown?
I have already answered your SmartMatch inquiry in another post you have made but just in case you have not seen this then here is the information again.
The smart matches are generated when you make a change in your family tree and Sync (publish) them to your website. The data will then be compared with over 21 million other family trees at MyHeritage .
Due to the fact that this takes some time it will take 2-3 of days to collection of the data. Large family tree projects may take a week.
The smart matching technology is very dynamic.
It happens that in this "intermediate period" webmasters make changes in their family trees and remove individual cards and even entire trees. The result is that you have received a message that you have a smart match, but that the data has been removed. The result is an empty smart match.
The smart match technology compares the matches according to certain standards such as gender, name, surname,birth year and death year. The data of the parents is compared as well.
There are matches of "lesser quality". This is also mentioned in your smart matches themselves - through percentages mentioned next to the match .
I recently had a number of very good matches for my family tree (firsrt name last name mother and father 4 siblings) on someoen elses tree. Along with a few that weren't so good. As far as I'm aware teh only change made to teh tree (by someoen I gave access to via teh site) was to a far back antecendant. Now all of teh matches have completely dissapeared, I have tried syncing setting it to very liberal - nothing seems to be making a difference.
Anyoen else come across thsi probalem in teh last week or so?
There are several possible reasons why smart matches disappear.One of them is that the family tree has been deleted. As a result all the smart matchesrelated to this tree will be deleted as well.
Another reason can be that the webmaster of the match changed the persons cards or deleted his entire tree.The results are that all related smart matches, including the smart matches already confirmedand rejected will disappear.
Another reason could be is that you or the webmaster with whom you had smart matches stopped the smart match function and this has the same effect as mentioned above; all smart matches for that tree disappear.
i can confirm that both trees still exist (I found it on a manual search since I had messaged the person and so coudl click on thier name). I have not turned off smart matches my end (I checked thsi twice). I think it is a system issue as another smart match (that wasn't correct but it was clear why teh match was there) has also dissapeared. So I have gone from a few matches over at least two trees to no matches at all. It might be a big coincidence but it seems odd.
I created a my heritage site back in 2008 but do not remember now what email or password I was using, so I don't know how to get access to that and I am the site manager.... I only know that it exists because I created a new profile with myself and my husband (Lloyd Barber) and my son (Colin Barber born 1998) and then deleted it because I thought I could access it. I did a lot of work on that site and don't want to start over again... Help....
