I was very happy some months ago, when I heard from MyHeritage, about the possibility, beginning with January 2013, of adding a godfather (or godmother) in the online tree, besides the usual relatives that a person can have. This would have been a very important change, because MyHeritage has a majority of Christian users, and every Christian has a godfather !
But, surprise ! Just when I expected more the change, I am informed that "the "godfather" project was discated and will not occurr until further notice" !!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a huge dissapointment, I was so happy when you promised the godfather will be added ...............
MyHeritage keeps on dissapointing me... I will surely search for another genealogy site that would fulfill its promises, and respect more its users, and move all my tree there ! And also I must prevent all my friends that are using MyHeritage, about this... I am REALLY, really upsat :(
Of course, this change must be part of a larger discrimination campaign, directed against the Christian users - we all feel this way..........
What to say more ? Congratulations ! And keep on ignoring the people's needs, MyHeritage !!!
Wow! I have trouble just keeping track of the blood relatives back 9 to 13 generations, not to mention the step-children and children of unmarried couples of the past two generations. I would not even attempt to add the Godparents of our Christian family. I respectfully suggest you just keep that information in the Notes or Facts, under Birth. Or, start another tree that focuses only on Godparents. I have seen amazing improvements in the software in the past 3 or 4 years, and the improvements seem to be coming faster. If and when Godparents are added, you will just have to do data entry and not repeat the research process. Cheers!
I didn't receive any response for this important issue, from the owners/administrators ! Why are we treated so badly ?
To add a spiritual relative (godfather, godmother, godson or goddaughter) is VERY important for a Christian user. It has at least THE SAME importance like the natural relative (parents, sons or daughters).
Please tell us how many Christian users MyHeritage has ? This feature would be used by all of them !
We are asking for the introduction of this feature as soon as possible, because it is very, very strange to be able to add a father and a mother, but not to be able to add a godfather or a godmother ! This situation is inacceptable, every Christian user could fell confessionally DISCRIMINATED.
Thank you very much and please tell us in how many days will this feature be available.
