I am sorry that you feel this way. We only delete posts that violate the terms of service - including ones that insult the people that use the site and our workers.
We are open to feedback, but we ask for the language used in the feedback to be polite.
I would love if you'll be able to send a message with any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask for Arbel.
Thank you for letting us know about this post. I deleted it.
Totally agree with you! I had THREE postings deleted within 20 minutes after they were posted, just because I dared to ask WHY my postings were deleted. But the one you are reffering to definetly violate the forum rules and it´s still there.
MyHeritage has covered themselves pretty much against anything. They can even delete bug reports or ANYTHING that put their software and service in a bad light. This is because of:
"You must not:
Use our Website or Service in a way that might damage our name or reputation."
I have asked before, if they follow their own Terms and Conditions and have come to the conclusion that they violate their own rules.
Clearly, making FAMILY TREE BUILDER v.7 and releasing it the way they did with so many bugs, ignoring their members (including those who pay money) and whatnot WILL DAMAGE BOTH THEIR NAME AND REPUTATION. I wonder, will it have concequences for those employees who violated the terms?
You have been a member for two weeks and you have 18 posts Mr.Bolton and all you do is complain. You do not give the impression you are remotely interested in family history, if however you are slightly interested, may I suggest you go join Ancestry?
I would love to see a place below the "Buried at" line for the plot number.
I also find FindAGrave.com to be an important and essential source of information. Would love to see a place below the proposed plot line for the Find A Grave memorial number. It would also be nice if you clicked on that number in FTB it would open a browser tab and load that memorial for you. But, I guess that would be too much to ask for.
First of all, I love the MyHeritage site! I am really enjoying creating a county-wide family tree project for my local area. I know that the tree I am building is a little bit unusual and this request might not be something most people would utilize, but I hope it is something to consider for those who would find it very useful.
I could not find a way in the current site to limit photo tagging access. My request would be to add that as an option in "Site Settings" menu, in the “Content” section, on the “Permissions” tab.
The site I am building incorporates archival family records and photos with full documentation and sources, so that these records can be accessed by the public. Ultimately, I'd like to allow the community researchers to become members of the site so that they can see calculated relationships, navigate with more ease, participate in comments sections to build on the research, etc. I am not going to allow members to edit the tree because the material is carefully controlled from archival records and that is an important factor in this presentation; however, members will be welcome to use the comments sections to provide feedback and research direction for which they will be credited.
I have had one concern about opening the site up to allow memberships. I can control their ability to edit the tree, but not their ability to edit the photos. I totally understand and love the option to have members "tag" photos; however, I think that just like the ability to control tree editing there should be an opportunity to control photo editing. In this case, the photos are from archival sources and I need to control their information as I do the tree data. I want members to be able to contribute via comments sections just as I do within the tree, but I don't want to allow tagging on their end.
In english, when the parents of two people are siblings they are called 1st cousins (niece/nephew).
Further down the tree relatives can be called 2. cousin, 3. cousin and so on. This is well explained at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cousin
However, in countries like Norway and Sweden there are different terms for the very same relationships.
As example, what is in english called a "2. cousin" is in Swedish called "Tremänning" or a "Syssling". In the same matter, Norwegians would call a 2. cousin, a "Tremenning". The swedish wiki has a good overview over this at http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kusin
Now here is the problem with Family Tree Builder, there are no way for us to translate this properly. The strings that can be translated looks like:
"Cousin F", "%2 is a %3 cousin %4 of %1"
It will as example look like
"NN is a 2nd cousin of NN"
For us, it is simply the wrong term. We would call this person Tremenning
"NN is a Tremenning of NN"
Without proper support for these translations, a very basic part of relationship terms within Family Tree Builder are simply missing.
I hope this issue will be adressed now that the 7.x version are released and development of this are developed.
Hi there, is there any chance that I could export events in calendar (birthdays, marriage, etc.) into a file that I could import into Outlook - or even better - get it as a "live link" showing in Outlook (so that when someone add any data such as birthday these will automatically show up in my desktop calendar)??? Now I have to do it all manually... Thanks in advance for your reply!!!
