There is no Montenegro on the list of countries, so i had to pick Croatia instead of my own country. Montenegro is an independent state for over two years, so this should have already been updated. Hope to see this problem solved.
I would love to have a variety of genealogy backgrounds and graphics available to dress up the Home Page. It is so stark looking. Would also love to have a way of presenting the virtual cemetery in some manner. Don't like seeing the photos come up mixed in with family photos....
"I would love to have a variety of genealogy backgrounds and graphics available to dress up the Home Page. It is so stark looking. "
I agree with you that it would be nice to have some backgrounds/graphics, etc. to easily choose from when designing the Home Page....
What I have done to dress up my Home Page was to use Word to create a table and then I just partitioned the table into sections to fit my needs & the info I wanted to include using specific fonts and table shading to color each table section (must save your document as .rtf not .doc)....
hint...don't make your table as wide as your home papge, make it slightly smaller so it will fit. If it's too big, it will stretch the home page way out, and it doesn't look good then & is difficult to navigate--- just go back to Word and decrease your table size if this happens. (I have had to do this a few times/going back and forth to get it right, but the result was more satisfying than the stark page... & it's kinda fun to play with/design, & learn about the best ways of how to get it loaded to the website). --I'm working on how to figure out getting banners & clip art to show, becuse my first attempts for a small map & thistle clip didn't come through:( ...but I'll keep trying different things....
When done designing your table, right-click and copy it, then go to your myheritage home page, and click the edit this text line....
When you go to edit your current home page text, just place the cursor under/after the current text in the Welcome/Intro paragraph then paste the table into the home page text area.
When I want to change/edit/add new info, I just go into my saved Word .rtf document, bring up the table & edit it, save it, copy it, & paste again to myheritage home page. A lot easier to to do editing/designing in Word, then copying to myheritage (after you get the table format/size fit right). I even added hyperlinks to the text in my table and it comes through fine on the home page, so members can link to external websites that are pertinent to your site/your family, which is a very nice option. Hope this may be helpful in some way....
I recently had a user entering data without paying close attention and they listed two people as married with children in error but when I tried to correct it I learned of your systems issues of deleting people with children. Deleting people with children is not the only issue, how do you disconnect marriages made in error and reconnect them to an existing person in the database? The in ability to fix these marriages caused me to delete my whole "database" and start over which caused a lot of frustration considering how much i had into it.
It would be nice to have an iPhone app as nice GUI to access the site rather than using an small screen web browser when on my iphone. There is only one genealogy program for the iPhone that I know of so you would have little competition. Also it would be very nice at family gatherings to take a photo with my iPhone right to my MyHeritage.com
oops... you need to hurry! Ancestry just announced theirs came out! I still have a small tree there, but I moved here because I didn't like their policy of SELLING all my information that I freely posted. so I never posted more. not going back either. but.... it would be really great if you guys caught up with them in that regard!
That would be interesting. The inventor of Esperanto, Zamenhof, came from the very small town of Bialystok, where my grandfather and his family were born. If you are serious about it, and are willing to invest the efforts necessary, please contact Daniel (firstname.lastname@example.org) who is in charge of our translations and he will be very happy to give you access to our system which can be used to translate to the site to Esperanto.
I'm not sure if this is something I have done unknowingly but don't believe it is. I will use my self for an example. I should only exist in the database once yet when I try to manually match a photo to myself it gives me two options of "me" to chose from and if I don't choose the right one it attaches to me but in a cloud disconnected from the rest. I return to the people list and indeed I am only there once but still show as existing twice when matching photos? This is happening to a few people and even after matching, their face do not show on the tree. Please advise me as to what I have done wrong or is the system burping and how to correct the issue. Thanks.
Same problem here. And those mystery persons don't disappear, even when they have been "deleted" from all the photos that were tagged with their names. I think the problem stems from tagging people who are NOT yet in your family tree, but there may be more than one thing at work here.
Can we get the ability to delete a PERSON from the list of people in the Photos and Videos tab?
All the photos and duplicate people the site generated are in my immediate family and already connected to the tree. I'm becoming more and more frustrated with all the problems this site has and regret paying for it.
Hello folks - this is such a splendid site I hate to complain about anything about it but.....being a stickler for grammar, may I point out that the template paragraph you use for home pages contains the following error:
This is a great system that allows anyone like you and I to create a site
Should read "allows anyone like you and me to create a site". Thanks for listening
Ok, so we Americans are out of order. In FTB, Dates are entered into their proper fields in the format Month Day Year (such as Jun 10 2004) whether typed or chosen in the drop down fields. HOWEVER, when you generate a "Book" Report, in the narrative parts, NUMBERS are substituted for the MONTHS in the INTERNATIONAL format! So, a date in a field shows as "Jun 10 2004" but in the book report is shows up as 10 6 2004, thus looking like Oct 6 2004.
The relationship connecting lines are too faint. When you are viewing a couple with their children below, and it's showing the spouses of the children next to each child, it's confusing to get a grasp of which ones are the children and which ones are the spouses of the children because the lines are too faint. Either make the lines thicker and darker, or add an option to put a BOLD FRAME around the card of each person that is related by blood to a selected person (thus leaving the spouses of blood relatives unbolded and not command the same attention.)
Provision to be able to cite SEPARATE sources for different fields of a fact, such as a birth or marriage. Often, a birth date will have a citation from one source, but the birth place cite a different source. Many other events that have a date and place meet the same need. (Marriage, death, burial, etc.)
When citing a source, a button should be provided to "Use the previously cited source." This makes it much faster and easier when citing sources for all the members of a family that share that citation. The window should show what the previously cited source was. (See Brother's Keeper) The same goes for places.
When citing an EXISTING source for a person or event, the drop-down menu of sources should present itself in alphabetical order. (Auto-complete is good, but when you have hundreds of sources, it's hard to remember exactly what the first word of a source was. in order to begin to type it.)
Provide an option for photos: "DO NOT PUBLISH". I would think many folks like to see some pics while using their Family Tree Builder on their home PC, but not want the whole world to see the picture.
Place a small icon in the upper portion of a person's card that is always visible if the person has more than one spouse. As it is now, you must scroll down to see if a person has other spouses.
Show the divorced date in the "status" block under a couple. It's currently shown for marriages, should also be for divorces.
That's all I can think of for now. Maybe more later.
