i'm wondering about using information from others sites (smart matches) & research. is this permissable? are there rules & regs about this? i don't mind sharing my information but certainly wouldn't want others to think i 'stole' their infomation.
I have struggled with this problem also and have resolved it for myself as follows. I am delighted to share whatever information I have with fellow myHeritage users and therefore have made my family tree accessible to all other users. If they want more, all they have to do is ask or request to become a member of my site and have full access. If one does not want to share any information at all, one should make one's site completely private. I have gratefully used and down-loaded information from other sites, but I always try to let the owner know with a thank-you note whenever possible. When there is a smart match with a completely private site, I try to contact the owner, who sometimes responds but often not. I hope this helps.
I mistakenly started to add children to one person in my family tree. After recoginizing my mistake and removing the information an unknown box remains in it's place. Haven't been able to figure out how to remove the "unknown" box as there doesn't seem to be an option for deleting it.
I have enabled getting Email alerts from Any relative under my site preferences
Under point 2 - event Reminder , send calender alerts by Email selected and Family distance as - Any relative.
Still the Newsletter/calender alerts which comes in Email, only shows near relatives not distant ones.
1. i have some words that i translated in FTB, my father also tried to translate but had a spelling mistake in the original language and thus translated some words incorrectly, the mistake apears in a lot of family members, i want to know how can i view all of the word FTB "knows" how to translate and maybe erase some words that are duplicated because there is a mistake in the spelling.
2. in the family tree web site, in the setting section under privacy -> members i cheked the "Can site members edit the family tree" option, how do i use this option? how do i give members the option to update their own family in the family tree?
thanks for the answer, in one of the links it says that editing FTB trees online will be available in the next version of FTB, is that correct? and if that so, can you please share with us when will this version be out?
i hate being a nag but i have to know everything before i try to make my family tree an online family tree via GED file.
on the one of the links you sent me it says that if i export a GOD file it doesn't save the photoes, i'm guessing it referes to the family tree picture of the persons' face (right?) is that the only problem with this procedure, i mean this procedure won't mess up my album picture face recognition tags and other stuff right?
with almost 700 people in the tree i have to make sure :)
I am glad that you are enjoying using Family Tree Builder version 5.0.
I am sorry but there is not yet a fully synchronized version of Family Tree Builder.
If you would like to have a family tree you can edit online, do the following:
Open your family tree in Family Tree Builder.
Go to File > Export GEDCOM.
Now go to your family site.
Click on Family Tree > Import GEDCOM.
Browse your computer to find the GEDCOM you just created.
Click upload and that’s it!
Now you have a family tree that you can work on online. Please note that this will be a separate tree from the first one. You can still publish that tree to your site and it will update the FTB tree that you have on your site. The tree that you imported will be editable on your site by you and your members.
To see all the trees that you have on your family site, just go to your site, and to Family Tree > Manage Trees. There you will see a list of all the tree that you have on your family site by their name, size, and type of tree. You can delete any tree by clicking on 'delete' next to a tree.
You can click on any tree, and you will be taken to that tree on your site. You will also have the option to switch between the trees, when you are actually viewing one of your trees. You will see a dropdown list on the top left, allowing you to switch between your trees.
If your tree is editable online, your site members of the family site have full editing privileges for that particular site.
To restrict your members so that they cannot edit the family tree, please go to Settings > Privacy > and under the Members tab, you will see the option to do so. Save your settings.
Please note that this is still only for a tree that is editable online, as trees that are published from Family Tree Builder are not editable by you or your site members on your site.
i've done what you suggested, exported my family tree to GedCom file and imported it from the site directly.
then, i opened the FTB and imported the tree, started translating and correcting stuff.
then i saved it and published it to the site, than i've noticed that i can no longer edit the tree online...
i was under the impression that i can edit the tree online and from the FTB but i have to start the tree from online to accomplish this.
do i really have to choose? edit the tree online by members of the site, and limit the tree to only one language or edit the tree from FTB have it translated but no one else can edit it?
i am really frustrated about this, it seems to me as if these things that i'm missing here are very basic (plus micro-managing privilliges and permissions but i've opened a separate thread for this subject).
I upgraded to Preimum and ran into an issue I need an answer for. I already sent in two emails to the support email site but received no answers. Are you the only person working to answer all these questions?
The question is how to erase/delete all the info created by a Smart Research search on an individual. You could get 20 or 30 answers per individual and this could get real confusing if you ran your whole tree. There must be a way to clear the unwanted information.
