Hi, Unfortunately at this time there is no way to add complex relationships like two brothers marrying two sisters online. The only option available is to add their information twice. We do hope to have this feature in the very near future. It is one of the thing being worked on as we speak! If you wanted to work in the free downloadable Family Tree Builder Software, I could let you know how to manage such a situation. Best Regards, Esther /MyHeritage Team
I have been following the questions and answers on these kind of relationships (I believe the correct term is "cycle relationships") of which I have a number in my own tree(s), all of them requiring the reappearance of an existing individual, with all ancestors and other relationships intact, at a second point in the tree. I have also been following how the competition is dealing with it and other issues. Of those I've been keeping my eye on, only Geni originally had the cycle relationship function, but MyHeritage had something Geni didn't, the "gender unknown" option. In the meantime, itsourtree (verwandt.de) has added both cycle relationships and gender unknown. At this point, the lack of cycle relationships in MyHeritage is holding up further input, as so much depends on (or follows from) certain of these relationships. I do have Family Tree Builder, but have been creating everything in the Immersive Tree and wish to continue doing so, so that all information is available online from the moment I enter it. I suppose I have two questions: a) is there a way that the existence of the function in the downloaded software could help me in the Immersive Tree (without, of course, deleting and/or redoing hundreds of entries manually from scratch), e.g. can a Gedcom created offline be uploaded and still retain those relationships in the Immersive Tree?; b) is there an honest and realistic estimate, one more date-oriented than "in the very near future," that you could give for the appearance of this function in the Immersive Tree? If I had a timeframe that I were assured was dependable, I could plan a more sensible allocation of my own time resources.
I agree - this is not a complex relationship! it is a basic function for any family tree, esp if you are going back 5-6 generations...
I also would like to find out when this will be available. I also need to change the father of a great uncle as the earlier info I had was wrong. It is unimpressive that relationships between 2 people cannot be redefined once they are added.
