When I reject or confirm a smart match it also changes the match for similiar names. e.g I have 2 sisters Maria and Helen Maria. Both names come up as matches for each other. If I'm doing Maria's matches and set the matches to Helen Maria as rejected then it also will change Helen Maria's smart matches to Helen Maria to rejected. Like wise when I set Maria's matches to Maria to confirmed it also changes the matches for Helen Maria to Maria to confirmed. I have gone back and forwards between the two several times but each one always changes the other as well. I have tried using the change status button on the mtach listing page as well as going into the match and changing it on the person's page. I've also tried re-installing the program. The problem is not only with these 2 siblings but others as well. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
Pleased to hear that Smart Match Deletions is on the menu, any idea when this might become available. The only solution offered so far for the poor matching is to change the settings in FTB. I do not use FTB but upload my tree via a GEDCOM and I cannot adjust the Smart Match settings on the website. With a tree of over 22,000 individuals, I am getting a lot of not-so-smart matches and I cannot tag/delete these.
When I click the "learn more" button, it takes me to the smart matches table listing 18,728 matches, but doesn't show the one I click on. When I click on "view all matches from this family tree online" it takes me to the same place. I've never been able to see the smart match that I get in the email, and I've been using this site for about 15 months. I end up just ignoring those emails, because while they look interesting, they don't do me any good. I also have tried going into My Family Tree Builder, and looking for the person who it says has a new smart match, and I don't see any match.
Smart Matches allow you to search other trees that may have distant or not so distant relatives that you may not have prior knowledge of.
This summer I used it to match my great-great grandfather's family through his wife 's family. Sometimes it will be the completion of a puzzle of where someone fits into a family or tying up loose ends when putting together Family Trees.
Of course you have the option of not using it- your choice and many times they are not matches in your family. My family background is from Sweden and they use the father's name and use it as the son's surname which complicates finding family.
Give it a try and see if you find a new link in your family.
These people are none of my families. They belong to the site I've contacted you about before. You put them onto my site, Callaway Grays 'n Crumps, a long time ago. I have tried repeatedly to get you to take that site away & return my own genealogy research. You haven't done it. Communications from you have shown clearly you do not even read my complaints about losing all my own work.
I have given up trying to get cooperation from you on straightening this problem out, but please, stop sending me their Smart Matches. They are not mine.
