whenever I insert a picture or
certificate in the tree, when I save the project at the end, not only does
it save it on the project tree, but it puts duplicate pictures of every
picture in the tree back into my photo files.
I'm just trying out MyHeritage to see how it works. I added some of my information and exported it as a GEDCOM to make sure I could get my data out. Then when trying to import that GEDCOM file to another site to test it (ancestry.com), it says the GEDCOM is not valid.
I have some info in ancestry.com but they don't appear to allow you to export to GEDCOM (a requirement for me), but if the GEDCOM exported from MyHeritage is not valid, I have essentially the same issue.
I am also having the same problem. I maintain my tree on myHeritage & export it ancestry to search for records. It has always worked in the past but suddenly has stopped working since upgrade. I will ask ancestry for help to.
Error: The file you have specified (Newest gedcom try2.GED) does not appear to be a valid GEDCOM file, please try again.
I would like to add weblinks to my family tree that I created and published on my site using FTB, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this. I have added many to my other family tree that was created online. Can someone help please, as this is a great tool I would like to utilise for my other tree?
Thanks Noam, I did see that feature for FTB, but that is for 'contacts' only, ie phone number, address, etc. The feature I am meaning is available on the website when you click on anyone's pfofile within the family tree (that I created from the web) you can add as many youtube clips, or any other web links relevant to that person as you like. This feature is not available for my other tree that I upload from FTB.
I just wondered if MyHeritage had plans to make it available for both publishing options.
MyHeritage seems to use a member's username rather his/her real name when displaying his/her actions on email updates. For instance, email updates will say "Andre965 did this and that", rather than "André Levy did this and that".
I had the same issue Andre. It's easy to fix though. SImply go to your profile page and change your name to what you would like it to appear as in emails, etc. Your full name will still appear as per normal in your 'tree' so don't worry about that.
Thanks, Janine. Apologies for being daft, but I couldn't find the username field in my profile.
As a simple product improvement recommendation, I'd suggest MyHeritage should minimise the amount of similar fields it uses. For instance, there is a name that is used in the tree, another one in the profile, and yet another one as a username. That's bound to generate confusion.
When I am using the software (My Heritage) and data on my computer I am not able to see dates for living people. I understand this for people displayed on the website, but for working on individual records I want this information.
I want to say thank you for this fantastic website, however I have some problems with the Hungarian names. The Hungarian correct name order: <lastname> <firstname>
Unfortunately I can't find an option where I can set the naming order. How can I solve this problem?
There is another problem. My relative's name is Pintér Erzsébet. To show her name in the correct order, I put her firstname to the lastname's field and put the lastname to the firstname's field. Now her name is shown correcly: Pintér Erzsébet. Then I wanted to add her married name - Dobos Lászlóné - but the website puts the 'Pintér' name before the married name: Pintér Dobos Lászlóné. It's incorrect. In Hungary there are 3 different married name orders - :D - and sometimes it totally different from the original. How can solve this?
So I go through the trouble of creating a site, down load your software, load a peice of my main gedecom and now I can't do anything with my work without upgrading. If you are going to pull that crap you should let us newbies know in advance so we don't waste our time. I wouldn't join now no matter what!!!
