I've seen from perusing the forum message boards that large numbers of users have been requesting a version for Mac's for a number of years now. The reply is that it is definitely on our plans.
Could you be more specific about this please ? Are you in the process of developing new software, or is this just a long term plan with no development start date scheduled ? If the former, what is the prospective release date ?
Having now moved to a Mac as my main computer, I need to have some definite idea of where things are, so that I can decide whether to stick with My Heritage or move to alternative software which would be Mac compatible.
Unfortunately I do not feel that the current promoted work around of an editable on-line site, is the solution for me.
I need to echo these comments, as I too have recently switched to a Mac as my primary home computer, and now have no way of leveraging the software features that led me to initially choose MyHeritage. Managing and editing my data from the online site is not comparable, or an adequate long-term solution. I have begun exploring alternatives, and fear that I too will need to search elsewhere for Mac friendly options. If this is not on the horizon, please be transparent about it.
While clicking on the small blue and pink boxes, if any, on the top of the main box of the individuals in the tree, takes one to the brach of that particular individual, there appears to be no way of coming back to the original page having the main tree
Thank you very much for the prompt reply, a) worked. b) I knew it will take to the main tree, but it is not of muchhelp as it centers the tree on me, and not on the person I was interested C) is not takin one to the main tree. it only centers the person in the tree branch.
Record Matching brings me so many totally irrelevant matches that it's ridiculous.
A good example is a man born and died in Canada who never left the country yet is matched to numerous US newspapers, to US college yearbooks from after his date of death, to American Civil War records from before he was born, to census records from England and Wales.
I don't need to view the matches to know that these aren't valid (and why does the software even bring them up?).
It would be great to be able to have checkboxes so that I could select them then reject the whole works en masse. Can do?
It would then be great to never have to see them again. That means having some way to fix the filters so that only relevant records appear (in other words, I want to have some control over what I consider relevant).
It would also be wonderful to be able to reject them without paying for a WVR subscription. Can do?
I think WVR in its present form is next to useless because of all the irrelevant "matches" it produces.
In this merry xmas time I only have a few wishes from my favorite genealogy program, MyHeritage:
1) Please revert to the former format of the online familysite, as the current is to tedious to work with when updating details about individuals. Please bring it back to the format of the looged out version.
2) Please listen to the great and devoted community surroundig you. If we could have just a minimal influence on the the future design and contents/functionality of the online famili-site and FTB, I'm sure that even more users would prefer MyHeritage. At least inform about yor plans for the future (blueprints).
3) Please let RecordMatches be voluntary as SmartMatches are. Until now I have only received payable information about WikiTree information that I have uploaded myself.
The wishes are presented in order of relevance. Thanks in advance and have a Merry Xmas
Hi Guys.....just an idea.....amongst all the family tree boxes for each individual, it would be great to have an identification icon (perhaps a 'crown') on the box corner <perhaps top right> of all fellow researchers who are attached to your own web-site tree. This way, amongst the many individuals in the tree, researches would be more obvious, and easy to connect with, for deeper information on those branches.......have a great day!.....cheers Ian
Tenho dois sites: ragrilo e grilo. Quero deixar o ragrilo e cancelar o grilo. Como faço? Não encontrei orientação no suporte. Meu medo é de eliminar os dois. Não quero eliminar os dois. Quero deixar o ragrilo
What would really complete a site like this would be a wiki or collaborative style document editing platform where family historians can construct a story of the family history in booklet form. Each document should be editable by all family members and can link to family member profiles when referenced.
For example, if I wanted to write a biography of a famiy member, it should be in a section called biographies and then if someone later wants to put together a book and include that biography, they should be able to simply reference that biography in a tag or something and it gets pulled into their family history book. If a photo is needed, it should be able to be referenced from the family photo album and inserted wsywig style.
I was really thinking of something like how wikipedia is set up except oriented at family and individual documentation.
I have the full vision for this in my head and was considering just authoring the website myself but I want to give you guys a crack at it first because I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
We currently offer fact, events and biography editing only by certain allowed people in the tree - usually the site managers. This ensures that only selected few will have this privileges of actually making changes in order to not make a mess or to hold individuals from doing un-wanted changes by the owner.
And in order to allow individuals to edit the tree, it needs to be on the web site (not edited and published in the Family Tree Builder) and you will need to add the privileges to the users in your settings.
You're making good points for us to work with - referring to people on trees along with events is very important and we will take this as feedback. Also, we would be glad if you could point out what is currently different and wrong in our documentation system (such as the biography) that needs improving in more details (What are the points that are critical and different from Wiki pages that could enhance your experience)
I recently moved from Ancestry.com to myHeritage.com (Premium Subscription) just because of more interactive reports and charts ... but one thing, which continuously irritating is the display of STEP relationships on your site.
- 1st Wife
- Son B
- Son BA
- Son BB
- Son C
- Son CA
- Son CB
- 2nd Wife
- Son D
- Son DA
- Daughter DB
1) In ancestry.com, The relationship of "Son BB" with "Son DA" shows "Paternal Cousin". However, in myHeritage.com it only showing "Relative"
2) The Siblings of "Son B" in Ancestry.com
- Son C
- Son D
- Daughter E
However, in myHeritage.com, it shows only "Son C" I believe, Ancestry.com showing more accurate relationships; which I am also expecting from this site. Please resolve this issue.
Both of your issues are caused by an underlying problem where our tree does not connect between the families of the two wives of a specific person. This happens because the design of our family tree is made for one wife per person.
I will take this feedback and suggest it to the developing team, but this problem is actually a solution to a different problem (which means the this option might not be included) - where people might have too big or too complicated of a tree which might take too long to load or too complicated to view easily, and thus we make the trees more minimized. Ofcourse, you should be able to view the different parts of the family by clicking on the small tree icon.
