Its probably a bug but it is possible to see what the private is. If you view the match and then select the Compare Family Tree Tab you will see what the private stand for. Since I have Swedish as language setting Im not sure of the exact name of the tab.
Anders, thank you. Yes, I figured out a while ago that I could use the "Compare Trees" function (and sometimes one can hover over the star rating), but as many matches as I get, comparing trees is extremely time consuming. I guess I fail to understand why people post their trees on the Internet, then make all the information private except to, I assume, family members. So, unless myheritage can tell me how to block those kind of matches, I'll just keep hitting the Ignore link.
When will this kind of matches be corrected? You say that siblings may be matched, but brother/sister (image 1) should be impossible or even total strangers of opposit gender (image 2).
Empty fields seems also to be a sourse of correct matching since I have had only same gender and empty fields yielding high percentage in matchings.
Since Smart Matching is on server side it would be easier to correct these kind of bugs than new versions of FTB and other new functionality. Next improvement of software must be the Smart Matching and not new features users are not asking of. One year ago Smart Matching worked better than now. How about restore that version of SM.
I invariably get duplication of spouses after merging Smart Matches. Is this a glitch in the program, or what is the cause of this. It is most inconvienent since I often only realise it's occurence after it has happened. When I delete one of the duplicates I must be very careful because by selecting the wrong duplicate I may lose all the couple's offspring which means I have to repeat the merging all over again.
May 19:th 2012 i published a Family Tree, Gotland, on my webspace. I have a Premium account. Today, more than 4 months later I still have NO SmartMatches for that tree!!! That can NOT be possible as I have many names from that FamilyTree in my other published tree, Jackson 2011-12-30 and get lots of matches, also for persons i the Gotland tree.
So what you are saying is that there are NO matching done when I have uploaded my FamilyTree the first time? I have to upload it, make changes on my PC and upload it again before I can have any matches?
I do have to say that you have NOT answered my question at all, just telling me how your server handles matches.
Ok I'll do some changes in the trre and re-upload it and we will see what happens,
I`ve had that same problem for about a week now - All my smart-match disappeared both on my treebuilder and on my web-site. I used to resive about 15-25 e-mails pr. day with smart-matches, but now i don`t get any ?
And the new Record-match shows about 10 match - but when i open the record match there are none?
I really hope that MyHeritage can solve the problem - i don`t hope that i`ll have to re-build a new tree with over 7000 relatives.
I was wondering the same thing, although it's only been a week for me. But I kind of feel like I got ripped off because I upgraded to premium just for this purpose. My tree is on another genealogy website and it has hundreds of thousands of record matches, so I can't believe that the same tree here is not finding anything. I guess I'll just keep waiting.
Please note that for big trees as yours the Smart Matches might have a small 'delay' since they are recalculated and updated every time the person makes a change on his/her tree.
I have manually updated your smart matches, so if in 48 hours you still cannot see any Smart Matches, please contact me again.
Hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further comments or questions.
I have manually updated the smart matches on your trees as well. Please wait 48 hours without publishing or updating them, and after this period you still cannot see any Smart Matches, please contact me again.
