Hi, I'm new to this - just started today - and I'm having a problem when adding unmarried partners, it's automatically giving the females their partner's surnames and describing them as 'wife' - does anyone know how I can resolve this
(I'm checking 'none' in the box by the way not 'married')
I'm having the same problem. I believe it's a bug in the software.
It's annoying because the reports are showing by brother's partner who is also the mother of his son as my sister-in-law. They never married, and she is now married to someone else. The home page side panel under the calendar keeps requesting the date of their marrage.
I've even tried listing them as separated.... and she still shows up as my sister-in-law.
There are two options for you here. Either you can create a new family site for your spouse. Look for the "My Sites" drop down menu in the top-right corner of every MyHeritage page you are on and choose the 'Manage my family sites' option, there you will find a button to create a new site. This will create a completely new site for your spouse containing her family's tree and photos and feeds under your account.
The other option is to create a new tree under your family site. This can be done by going to the Family Tree tab> Manage Family Tree tab> Add tree.
It's entirely up to you to decide which option to choose.
If you have two sites at MyHeritage, they are unique and cannot be combined.
Just continue it, I don't think there is any way to merge them later(at least I havent found one). After the tree is completed or as you go along it will make a brach that signifies different familys merging.
Go to "settings" , (inställningar in Swedish),
Then go to "my preferences", (mina favoriter). There you can choose if you want the members to get updates and birthday reminders and so on. It's also possible for the members themselves to choose if they want to get these postings or not. They have to do it in the same way ("settings" and "my preferences"). I modified my welcome-text on the homepage to tell new (and old) members about how to fix this. Maybe an idea..
(You can use my text if you want to:
MyHeritage skickar regelbundet nyhetsbrev med påminnelser om andras födelsedagar och om vad som hänt på siten den senaste tiden. Vill du påminnas mindre ofta eller stänga av servicen kan du ändra det vid "inställningar", klicka därefter på "mina favoriter".
Currently the site webmaster can not make this choice for the members. Only members can choose for themselves if they want to receive calendar alerts or not. We've heard the request to give better control to webmasters in this area, and will consider adding a mechanism to set this option to all the members of the site simultaneously.
BTW, to get to the 'My Profile' page, you can click on the link directly from any page of the site. You don't need to go through the 'settings' area first.
Using the new possibility '' Tout-En-Un '' to imprit my tree, the picture obtained mesure about 5 x 2 meters. Impossible to use !. If possible, how to divide by 2 these dimensions, making a picture of about 2 x 1 meters, easy to use. Many thanks Charles Turlier
I am having a problem with the green color of your program. This color has overwhelmed the color spectrum. I need to find a way to mute the green so that I can return to a setting enjoyed before the download of your software. I need advice.
