I have several people in my family that I know for sure, either from Birth or Death Certificates, and I want to lock that data from accidentally being changed. When I get smart matches it doesn't show anything special to remind me that the data is certain, so I am afraid I may change it accidentally. Maybe if it were Bolded or shown in bright red, or even locked from possible change it would help.
I would like to be able to lock entries of people in my tree against being changed BY THE MYHERITAGE COMPUTER! This can happen in Family tree Builder where two entries are very similar. For example in my tree, in the same family, I have children William Mullis, 1738-1738, and his brother who would have been named for the deceased infant, William Mullis, 1739- ? .
When I reviewed it yesterday MH had reversed maybe eight matches, previously confirmed or rejected. So I amended them. And I want to LOCK in these entries! Geoff
I would like to point out that the matches that you confirm/reject will not affect any other matches that you confirm/reject. So the situation that you described sounds either like a bug or just duplicated matches that you think were reversed.
Please, let me know if you would like any additional information - we will appreciate it if you sent us an email instead of writing on this forum post to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for writing and we very much appreciate your suggestion, we will be sure to direct this to our developers and perhaps even get this feature in the future. I agree, this is very important - and a good tool to identify what should you change and what should you not.
This would also be helpful in managing trees and not only in the smart matching area. Not allow members to change very specific data that you are sure of will save a lot of trouble or atleast let them know it's an important fact that they are changing.
And I would like to be able to clearly mark the 'cards' or 'profiles' of people in my tree if there is doubt about their existence or their place in the family tree, or important data. For example by a big green question mark as a watermark on the card or profile. With a 'note' section for entering information.
It would also be nice if we had the option of seeing how we got our data when doing smart matches. (i.e. under each item such as dates or birth and death and places of birth and death) it showed 1. Birth Certificate, 2 Death Certificate, 3. WikiTree, 4. Smart Match, or 5. some other. I call that an option because I'm sure not everyone is that detail oriented.
When will you start developing a Windows Phone 8 and a Windows RT version of your apps? Within a year, Windows 8 will overtake Windows 7 and it's already on every new PC sold. You could get some real exposure by answering yor competition's Windows 8 app already in the Windows Store.
In a group photo, even when many faces are tagged in one sitting by a single person, multiple copies of the same photo come up in the home page,showing each tagging seperately, unnecessarily cluttering the home page.
I think this problem can be solved if a' All done' tab is introduced and all information combined on a single photo, after the 'All done; tab is clicked
I have often looked at the tree of another member who I think might have some of my family in the tree. I have looked through the People list (family Tree tab in Web site, click on People in the drop down menu) but it only shows a few people on each page and unless you are looking for one specific person it is far too time-consuming to be useful in a quick search of surnames.
Could that list display a simple list of family names (without initials) before the detailed list? That should be simple to arrange and it would be great; I could quickly and easily glance at another web site to see if family are likely to be there, then search if it looks as though it would be worth the effort. If it is practical a number in brackets after the name, to show how many of them are in the tree, would be wonderful.
The list of names that you have mentioned is a list of names that appears after the site manager has personally invited those people via their email address's therefore not all people that appear in the family tree are necessarily represented within the list.
However your suggestions have been noticed and it may be possible that our development team will take these into consideration for future updates.
Hi, Dean, and thank you for your reply. HOWEVER, I am NOT talking about the list of site members!!!
Please re-read my letter, carefully. I spoke of the FULL List of 'PEOPLE' in the family tree, sometimes thousands of them, maybe ten to a page and hundreds of pages.
If there were a summary of surnames, showing the number of people with each surname, it would greatly simplify a quick evaluation of whether that tree would contain helpful information about members of my own family. At present it is not practicable to look through the full list; I have tried it a couple of times.
Other members' family trees are a great resource but I can't take the time to slowly look through each one that looks interesting.
There is a difference between your MyHeritage account information and the info in your family tree.
Your MyHeritage account had your birth date listed as 1999. I fixed it for you.
If you need to make changes to your MyHeritage account in the future, hold your mouse over your name in the upper right corner of the screen and then click on Account Settings. "Edit Profile" to make changes.
