Has there been any progress with this suggestion? I think it would be a great feature to add. I know what I changed in the tree, but with large trees some small but interesting details might never be found by other family members.
On the Contact screen there does not seem to be a place to identify a source citation for various addresses at which a person lived during their lifetime. Can we have a Fact Citation button on this screen ? Thanks, Drew - Melbourne, Australia
A screen dump is attached. Maybe I am using the Contact screen for reasons other than its intended purpose.
I record persons addresses at various stages throughout their lives based on documents (e.g. census records, marriage certificates) . It would be good to record an address, a date of the address (which I can do), and the source of the address.
I installed version 5 and I think that using the TAB key to switch fields is not programmed quite right anymore. In my family tree I have name-only of parents of spouses. I used to be able to type the first name, tab, last name... then tab a bunch of times through birth date and directly to marriage date. But now, it skips over marriage date, goes back to name again, and on the second run though will TAB to marriage date properly.
I am certain this is an inconsistency with what I was doing in version 4 yesterday (I am in the midst of a massive amount of data entry) and I would hope it can be fixed immediately with a corrected update posted for download. Thank you very much!
Please describe the exact steps you are taking to reach this menu,
it would also help if you could attach a screenshot.
To take a screenshot, press the print screen key on the keyboard, it is the key labeled as “PrintScreen” or "PrtSc". This will copy an image of the MyHeritage screen to your clipboard. Once you have done this, click the Windows Start button in the bottom left corner and run MS Paint. It should be under All programs > Accessories > Paint. Once it's open, click Paste from the Edit menu, or simply press CTRL-V. Now you can save the screenshot and attach it to an email and send it to me.
One great thing I'm missing since I went from online version to FTB5.0 is that when you add or update a member of the family, this information is no longe rshown on the frontpage!
It was a good service for my members that they always could see who I add or updated! Can not ask them to check my tree each time to see the latest news I've made inn the tree.
Just a quick note to tell you that the PDF version for the Family Tree Chart you've just sent me is a failure: you haven't taken into account your International customers. No-one in Italy puts the maid Family Name in parenthesis, like you did on the poster. And you still have issues with the places database. I sent you an alert about this about 2 years ago and it's not fixed yet. I've spotted at least an error, BRECIA instead of BRESCIA as province for Brescia (the town). Moreover, in Italy you don't put the province like in the US, that is "Miami, Florida". You put it (only in administrative papers) with the proper abbreviation in parenthesis: "Someplace (BS)"
So, thank a lot for the PDF gift, but I will stick with Geni. :)
If you need a reliable partner for your internationalization needs, feel free to contact me in private. I own a translation and localization company and can give you a hand.
What about going to the Chart menu, >Descendent Chart > select vertical or horizontal. This gives it in a tree form. Is this what you are looking for? Or are you specifically looking for it in the text-only format?
I would like a tree view that would take a snapshop of a given year. For example if I chose the year 1871 - it would only show the people living that year and their descendents. Anyone deceased would be shown, but deceased would be grayed/dimmed to show they are not living. It would give a snapshot view of a family at a given time. Sort of like a timeline view, but in tree form.
I guess you could call these filters. Allow me to select who is shown in the tree view. Exclude any died under 18. Just show me the people living on this date etc.
I would like a feature to hide or have a different icon for 'lost children' 19th century Poland 1/2 of the deaths in many years were children. I like having these children documented, but sometimes would like to view the tree with these omitted to get a better prespective on things. If hiding is to to difficult to program, I think alternate icons to the pink blue and gray ones would be easy. Have two more icons for lost child male or female.
