This is basically "copy or retype all the stuff from one card, and delete it", which is time-consuming. It would be so much better if a merge could be done, similar to what is done when comparing my tree and another tree - clicking on the "merge" button allows data to be copied from the other tree. In the case of duplicates, it would be great if there was a way to copy everything from one card (to be selected by the user) into the other card (also selected) using a similar merge page before deleting the duplicate card.
It's actually not copy and pasting; you simply can delete one of the duplicates and use the attach/detach feature of the FTB or site to connect the correct duplicate to the rest of the tree, if necessary.
Please, take a look on the comprehensive explanation of this functionality on the link below:
But what if you have some information (e.g. addresses, occupation, etc) in card #1 but not card #2, and have some information (e.g. place of death and education) in card #2 but not in card #1? The only way to get a full set on one card is to cut-and-paste, or retype.
Numera har de flesta ett antal namn som man fått vid dopet men man använder mestadels bara ett namn, eller ett sammansatt namn, tilltalsnamnet, eller ett smeknamn. Skulle det vara möjligt att i My Heritage kunna markera användarnamnet med exvis fetstil eller understrykning och att denna markering kunde vara användbar vid val i utskrifter och visningar i trädet, i stil med visning av efternamn för kvinnor. I mitt träd har jag valt att skriva en asterix (*) efter tilltalsnamnet men det är inget som påverkar visning i utskrifter eller släktträd och det är bara jag som vet vad det betyder. Det borde påverka sökfunktionen också. Mvh /Sven-Arvid/
The suggestion that you have brought forward is a very legitimate one that I have now forwarded to the development team for them to take into consideration with future upgrades to the site and software.
Is there any reason whu I can't open a smart match page ("View Matches") by right-clicking the button, and selecting "New Tab". like in most other programs. I find it is eating up a lot of time and download, to open the new page in the same window, reject some and select "Confirm All", then have to go automatically to the "confirmed" tab on that same page,and then have to go back to the smart match page.
I'm ploughing through almost 30,000 smart matches, yet to be confirmed, looking for new data.
I posted previously suggesting different colours for different data - as per FTB matches, where different data is highlighted in red, and similar in blue. This would be a TREMENDOUS help.
But also, I have spent the last hour rejecting the same mismatches over and over. I have two suggestions:
(1) A database of previously rejected matches, that automatically rejects the same match in future. That is, once I've rejected a match between Robert Leeson (b. 1824) and Henry Leeson (b. 1829), I don't see any future incorrect matches between those two - I've rejected about 60 of these over the last year or so, and it's getting quite (expletive deleted) annoying.
(2) Part of my aggravation with the above is that in each tree I get 100% matches, for both Robert-to-Robert and Henry-to-Henry, before getting 60% (and incorrect) matches Robert-to-Henry AND Henry-to-Robert! If the database idea is not feasible (though I don't know why that would be - it's simple enough to program - all you'd need to record is name, dob, and dod) then at least could a less than, say 90% match check the match list to see if the same person has a greater than 90% match in the same tree, and if so, reject the lesser match?
I am in total agreement with this one! A clickable alternate line of descent would be awesome! I believe I seem to remember that about 5 years ago, just after I joined, there was this function, but it disappeared after a few months. The classic view on-line still shows cousin relationships.
Glad you agree with my suggestion. For some reason, MyHeritage deleted the original post. So that your response is not "Context-less," I thought I would recap!
In MANY families, related-marriages happen. The current system does recognize but does not report or display these fully. For example, if my Grandmother and Grandfather were also cousins, then I have dual relationships to almost everyone on our tree. I am my father's son, and I am also his cousin via the linkage between his parents. In fact, I am MY OWN COUSIN.
It would be really interesting (entertaining!) to be able to display or report on the FULL relationship(s) between people in the Family tree.
The system "should" be able to analyze and report on this by crawling backwards through both parents when asking for relationship(s).
FYI: THis kind of "interesting artifact" has been very useful to interest and engage the next generation in the maintenance and ongoing management of our family history.
Unfortunately when you invite family members from a family site than they get to see all of the trees that are within that particular site.
The best alternative would be to create a seperate family site for that particular family tree and invote them from within this new site. This would mean that they get to see and edit only that fmaily tree as they would not be members in the other site.
If they are already members within the first site then you would have to remove them from within this site by entering your site memebrs list via the Home tab and then clicking on site members. To the right of the persons name in the list you will then have the "More" option which you will need to click and then click on remove from site.
Yes I know I can export a tree as GEDCOM and import it into another FTB BUT I will loose my photos. A function importing a FTB-tree into an existiing FTB-trre with EVERYTING merged (photos, information, links, SmartMatches ans so on)
