Du kan välja att ignorera dessa smart matches så att de hamnar längst ner på listan och du slipper behandla dem på nytt. Det kan du göra genom att gå till Smart Matches-sektionen på hemsidan, klicka på "visa matchningar" och därefter klicka på "ignorera detta träd".
Hej det har jeg gjort der er 18 sider og det er et stort arbejde at gøre det. Jeg kan ikke for stå at man ikke kan gøre matching meget bedere der går jo meget tid med det . I burde gøre noget ved det det er jeres kunder i skal arbejde for .
Is there any way to delete an entire branch of a tree? I am trying to exclude the Smart Matches that are coming up from my ex-wife. I would like to retain some of that portion of the family tree but see no need to keep something that is 10 steps related by previous marriage. Is there any way to do this other than manually ignoring each tree (800 of them) or exporting and importing the branches that I want to keep? If I have to take the route of import/export, is there any trick to make sure that everyone that I want to keep is included and the relationships are retained?
There is not a automatic one-click way to delete a whole branch.
In Family Tree Builder, what you can do is detach a branch from the whole tree, by detaching the person that is the halo between the part you want to maintain and that which you want to take off, so you isolate the branch from your whole work and then delete each person of that branch manually.

Why is it that Smart Matching has been linked between the family site and FTB? If I block out Smart Matching in the family site, I won't get any matches to FTB. What would happen if I didn't have the site at all just FTB; could I then get matches?
I just accessed Daniel Gilman (1702-1780) and found 48 'matches' under his name. they are all duplicates, by different people, and one of them lists 24 children for this man, several of whom are named Abigail, more named Mary, and even a Bartholomew. It appears that somebody has no idea how to research, or how cihildren in a family 'connect'. frankly this gives me less confidence in this site than I even have for Amazon.com. not one of the so called genealogies matches the others, and its obvious this is about names, not reality.
obviously no one has researched these names, (in one instance his grandsons are listed as his sons, and a few extra thrown in to fill out the page) and anyone trying to use this site would do well to go elsewhere.
Okay, the most I have had for one name is about six. (Where one person has multiple TREES I just send the message once). But I just copy and paste the actual message (if the details are the same) so that's pretty easy. And of course where the discrepancies are so great as for it not to be the same person I reject the match.

Welcome to the wonderful world of amateur 'social networking' family history.
I can see how one might conclude that some users of MH don't understand genealogy, have "no idea how to research" and wouldn't know a source citation if they saw one.
The current versions of Smart Match and Super Search are based solely on names, to the complete exclusion of anything else, the result being thousands of ridicuous matches. MH has promised to improve it. But in the meantime, people merrily link to anything that looks even vaguely similar, and better SMs might reduce that but won't eliminated it. And the stupidities are copied into tree after tree after tree because nobody does any fact checking. But what the heck, I've seen that at other sites too.
This is a social networking site. It's for fun, it's relatively easy to use, it's got a friendly user interface, it's for families sharing stories and photos. In short, it's for family history as opposed to serious genealogy (as witness the complete absence of anything resembling proper source citation).
As you say, anyone doing genealogy and interested in research that will deliver relevant results will probably "do well to go elsewhere".
However, MH is getting better, and will continue to improve in the future. It is my hope that the next release (v8) will be a serious contender in the genealogy niche.
thanks,Tom. There needs to be a place where people can find what they need easily, without complications. And truly, for some folks just having all those names matters. for others, depending on what our research entails, the right names do indeed matter. When you encounter a family as name crazed as the gilmans, those Christian names got really important very early on. Very few sites are full service places (and thats not always a good thing either) but it woluld be nice to have a data base to check dates and names and such.
But when you think about it, as soon as you begin trading stories and photos, you've already put one toe in the water of genealogy. This is a clean interface, it's readable, the fonts are easy to take, and it's simple. I'd love to see it get serious as a place to save what we know for future reference.
MyHeritage actually gives their users the choice to make use of several functions and one of these
is the Smart Match™ function.
Smart matches are suggestions and consist of a possible match between two persons cards.
MyHeritage offers their users a platform to “expand through sharing” and it is the responsibility of the webmasters, who receive the matches, to check this information and possibly discuss these with the other webmasters through this platform.
The SuperSearch is MyHeritage’s research tool that allows you to search in over 6 billion records from around the world
such as birth, marriage, death, burial, census, military, immigration, yearbooks and other types of records, plus scans of original documents. SuperSearch also includes MyHeritage family trees, photos and members that are public – altogether more than one billion unique MyHeritage records from all countries of the world.
SuperSearch includes Record Matching Technology, which can find matching historical records automatically for your family tree.
And we also offer the Record Detective™.
This is a new game-changing technology from MyHeritage, which provides users with many records, other records and tree profiles about the very same people. It is original and there is nothing quite like it in the industry.
It doesn't replace manual research, but it can often help you save time and find relevant information you may never have found on your own.
