I absolutely love the research benefits that I am receiving from My Heritage. I commend them for what they have been able to put together. I'm sure there is just a box that I am not checking, but when I import a GEDCOM that has been created by my entries into PAF, all of the fields seem to show up just fine with the exception of the LDS ordinance fields. The problem occurs when I do my research and it is automatically merged, I want to be able to export a GEDCOM that has all of my fields for PAF including the LDS ordinances and the family search ID number (very important!). Could someone please help me with this dilemma or even if you tell me that it is not possible, I will find a way to work around it. The program is quite robust though and I believe that it should be able to pull in the LDS ordinances and family search number and place them in a protected area so that only allowed to members and guests can view them. Thank you in advance for your kind help. Sincerely, John
I "Intelligently" merged a smaller gedcom from a relative in the last week. This was the first ttime I had done so. I expected this to do "what it said on the tin", but it has totally skewed my tree. Apparently my name is now Sarah (I'm a man) and I was born about 50 years before my dad.
The question is: Can I retrieve a previous tree to try and restore the original tree? If not, this is going to take forever to fix.
I'm after the father,grandfather etc of a James Johnston.James was born 1887, d:1946, married Dorothy Ilderton in June 1911 Tynemouth Eng. James did live at Wallsend England in 1929. James was also a Coal Miner at the Rising Sun Mine at Wallsend Eng..hoping someone can help me, I'm not having any luck on my own. email@example.com
MyHeritage Blog says: "SmartMatch Merge compares your tree with all the trees in the MyHeritage database. This is open to everybody. This premium feature provides the ability to merge with one click - when you compare your tree and one with a match."
I get notifications of "Smart Matches" all the time, and I check them out, but have never seen such a thing to "merge" entries on people I identify as a match. I have a "Premium" subscription. Where is the Merge feature for Smart Matches?
It's also apparently impossible to see "Notes and Sources" for people on the matching screen, to see if there is anything worth merging for. There really should be a link to notes and sources, directly from the Tree, not only for people in the matchup screen but in my own Tree.
I had MyHeritage family tree on my hard drive. I made a backup copy to a CD because I was getting a new PC. I tried to download the backup copy but that didn't work. So I downloaded the software and then added the photo folder to the MyHeritage family tree folder but it will not recognize it. So now I have to add all the photos all over again for 899 people. When I go to photos it shows a camera but no photo. What am I doing wrong?
My family's surname changed from Dinnel to Donald. I have managed to narrow it down to 1920-1926 but where would the records be for this? How would I find out why they changed their name? I cannot find anything for this please help.
Can anyone explain to me what the above means, i'm fairly new at this game and some sites that i obtained information from for my family tree suddenly stopped appearing. Is there anyway I can get them back? and what do I need to do.
