I find it very annoying when a person has several near identical trees open, if for instance mr Smith has 4 near same trees then I get 4 matches because of this, it takes my time to accept or reject these matches. Why not ask the submitter which tree to use for smart matching (Usually the latest one submitted). and only match using that tree.
Also, it is sometimes difficult to say match or no match, why not have an "unsure" button?
Ingrid, Yes I have already used the "ignore this tree option", one member seems to have completely copied my tree, you can tell by little nicknames that you use which also get copied over, I don't mind but he didn't even ask. so he now gets ignored.
It would be nice if there were a feature that one could designate how many marriages a person had, or if the person ever got married. I have several ancestors that never got married and died in their 70's and 80's. It's kind of assumed in the program that the person had a spouse. This would lead to someone who I will pass on the tree to, to assume the information is incomplete and they need to research some more.
Yes I think that it would be nice to have a box you can check if the person never married. I have quiet a few people who never married and did not have any children. So yes I agree it would be nice to have that so instead of having to add "Unmarried" in the notes field. As sometime when printing reports you do not alway want to print the notes.
I have made my own work around for how to fix this situation. However, I know programs are constantly being improved. This is why I'm trying to make a suggestion, in the Product Suggestion forum on how to make this nice program even nicer.
Thanks for your question! If you click on your Family Tree tab than click on the Reports tab from the website you will be able to see most of the statistics of family members on your family tree. From that window, to the left, click on Marriages. From this screen you will be able to view statistics on marragies on your family.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if there is something else you were looking for
Maybe what I'm trying to suggest, I'm posting in the wrong spot. I'm not using the online version, I'm using the downloadable version: http://www.myheritage.com/family-tree-builder. If I posted in the wrong spot, please let me know, and I will post in a different spot.
I thought that maybe if I put in graphic/picture form, maybe I could make my suggestion clearer. Hopefully my attachement comes through. If not, let me know and I'll repost it.
But there isn't an option that says "never married". Whenever adding a new person, it automatically assumes a partner is going to be involved.
When adding children there is an option that says "Number of known children" and when zero is selected it says there were no children in the marriage. It would be nice for it to say there were no marriages and then the spouse field and family field would close up like with the zero children option.
If you don't know the name of the partner, just delete them. For instance, if you have a man and add children, it automatically adds a "mother" with no name. You can delete the mother and she will disappear. If you are adding a partner, there is an option in the little window to indicate whether they were married, or just "partners". I don't think there is a way to mark someone as "never married".
We currently do not have this types of reports. Although thank you so much for the suggestions! This is highly appreciated. I will be sure to forward it to the appropriate department for consideration.
Please let me know if you have any other ideas as we do value such input from our users.
Ancestry Charts: Can you put an option in the Ancestry type Charts to choose to repeate all duplicate ancestors? Can you add, in those cases, an option to choose if we want the number of times that ancestor repeates in the chart?
Descendent Charts: If someone has 2 or more mariages, this chart does no put the mariages in chronologic order (in the Close Family Charts it does it correctly). Can you change this odd behavior in the Descendent Charts?
If someone has, for example, 20 children, the family chart generated in the complete Report does not show all children and shows a emply box at the end. Can you correct this bug?
Thank you so much for your feedback and sugestions.
Regarding yor second and third observations: 2) "If someone has 2 or more mariages, this chart does no put the mariages in chronologic order " and 3) "If someone has, for example, 20 children, the family chart generated in the complete report does not show all children and shows a emply box at the end"
I have been trying to reproduce this bugs without success. The charts include wifes in the correct order and all the children are included.
