"Godfather" project
Mădălin-Cristian Focşa

Hello,

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.

While I surely don't use many of the feature of MyHeritage, I agree with Mădălin that the option of adding a spiritual relative is a very important one and cannot be so hard to implement.

Writing them down in the notes section, like Cindy suggested is, for the moment, the best solution, but it cleary isn't useful at all.

I looking forward to seeing this feature introduced soon.
