Multiple trees and smart matching
philip james wood
- Close

I find it very annoying when a person has several near identical trees open, if for instance mr Smith has 4 near same trees then I get 4 matches because of this, it takes my time to accept or reject these matches. Why not ask the submitter which tree to use for smart matching (Usually the latest one submitted). and only match using that tree.

Also, it is sometimes difficult to say match or no match, why not have an "unsure" button?

Regards, Phil.

Hi Phil,

Thank you for writing to us.

Thank you for your suggestions, I think they are important and I am glad to see that others agree as well.

Please note that as the duplicate trees often have different names, and contain slightly different information, it is difficult for us to  determine that they are duplicate trees automatically.

However, I do understand the inconvenience that it causes, and I will make sure that your feedback is passed on to our development team.

Regards,

Aviv

Aviv, Thanks for your reply. However, many trees retain the same name, just get increased in numbers,  and add a later date.

I believe your policy is  NOT to allow people tor remove their earlier trees unless they contain over 50,000 people,

relaxing this rule would allow people to manage their own trees more efficiently than at present.

I realise that the "Numbers Game" is a big marketing tool for My Heritage, but so is elimination of time wasting processes.

I hope that your team can find a way to adopt my suggestions. Regards, Phil.

Oh well--I can deal with the multiple trees via the 'ignore this tree' option.  But the 'not sure' option would be good.

Ingrid, Yes I have already used the "ignore this tree option", one member seems to have completely copied my tree, you can tell by little nicknames that you use which also get copied over, I don't mind but he didn't even ask. so he now gets ignored.

Regards, Phil.

Just because you've ignored him doesn't mean that he's ignored you. Which means that he can still copy you via SM. At least I think that's the way it works.
