I save my project on a Flash Drive as well as on the computer and the site. When I go to update my Flash Drive and try to open the project from it, it creates another version of the project in the program. I now have Williamson and Lane versions 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.
Why does it do this, and how can I get it to stop doing this?
I hope we can also upload some music...music from the era or generation of our relatives to give some nostalgia while we are scanning the pictures of our dear family members. some of their favourite love songs or any music with personal meanings...thanx.
does anyone know why the calendar and alerts would show an incorrect date? I have entered my birthdate in all the applicable places and the calendar still shows the wrong date how can I fix it? I even tried to delete the info and re enter it. My anniversary doesn't even show on the calendar and everyone elses does...why? Can anyone help?
When I imported my picasaweb photos, the tool did a fantastic job of grabbing the photos, comments, etc. However, I don't want to keep all the folders it imported. I would actually like to combine some of the folders and group the photos differently. I don't want to delete the pictures, just move them to a different folder.
How do I move photos from one folder to another?
Also, I cannot change an album's cover photo. The help at http://www.myheritage.com/help/2008/11/how-can-i-change-the-cover-photo-of-an-online-album/en/ doesn't work, as there is no CONTENT tab visible to me. Perhaps the site was redesigned since that help article was written? How do change the cover photo of an album?
Copy your photos from one album to the next,BUT make sure you click the little box to delete the photo from the current album. And this is essentially a MOVE.
Otherwise, you will get duplicate photos in the new album.
The Calender Alerts & Update alerts are useful but only want to receive it once a month - right now it seems to arrive a few times a week. Can I control how often I receive alerts? As it is we all suffer from email overload.
Hi, i'd like to print for christmas present, out familty tree but the pictures appear very poor quality. I used the PDF print from the site, because we use the site to manage the tree. The pictures quality is more than 300 dpi but on the pdf it's so poor.
How can i get the full pictures res PDF output file?
My family members are adding to the tree, which is great. As it grows, how do I determine when it's time for a particular area of the family to split off on their own tree if it's diluting the family history that I'm interested in?
Are there any options to split the tree without requiring them to re-create everything again?
Click Save As, choose the folder on your computer you’d like to save to and click Next. In your case, you will want to give this tree adifferent name than your main tree. You may want to name it after the eldest ancestor in the branch you are exporting, for example.
If you wish to fill in author information or add a description to the file, you can do so here. It is not necessary though. Click Next.
Choose the language of the tree. Click Next.
This is the screen where you will choose a specific branch to export. Choose the “Include specific people only” option and click Select People.
Click Add to select people from your tree. I suggest you review your family tree before completing these steps and choose which ancestral branches to export. It will save you a lot of time when you get to this step.
Select the person you want to add. (In the next step you will choose if to include descendants, so select only the eldest ancestors).
For each person you choose, you can include Descendants and Spouses, Descendants only, Spouses only, or only This person. Use the Edit button to do this. When you’re finished click OK.
If you have pictures then you will have an option to save pictures here.
Click Finish. You have just created a new tree which contains a certain branch of your family only. **Exporting a branch from the family tree has no effect on the main tree.
In order to publish this tree, you will want to open it in FTB first. Go to File > Import Gedcom and import the gedcom you just created. Then publish it to your family site.
I have a family tree created and found out that another family member already has a tree set up for her part of the family on MyHeritage. How do we link the trees so that family members in one tree can still see the 'other' branches of her tree also?
Has MyHeritage come up with a way to link trees together yet?
(As previously stated, using the client is not a realistic nor amenable option).
If this isn't possible, then that almost makes the site useless to us, since our overall tree is going to be enormous. Parts of the family just aren't going to care about lots of the branches, and I know that most of the family is not going to pony up for a premium subscription. Many just want to put in their 4-12 leaves and be done with it. If we all have to work on a mutli-thousand-leaf tree, then I might as well stop now before I get any farther into this dead end.
