Thanks for your feedback on this and I totally understand your concern.
The Instant Discovery feature was designed to allow members to easily add branches to their tree with a few clicks online. Many users do enjoy a feature of the sort.
That being said, If you find information that is incorrect from a family tree, we recommend contacting the site manager to debate editing their information. You can contact a site manager in your smart match panel. For more information, please see the popular FAQ:
In the case scenario where you would like to remove wrong information from an Instant Discovery that was accepted, we recommend that you restore a backup of your tree from before you accepted the discovery. This will ultimately allow you to review those discoveries as smart matches for each person that is found in this discovery in your smart match consensus page.
If you find that a match is wrong (sometimes siblings are matched with each other for example), just mark it as rejected.
Marking the match as rejected will help you manage your matches, and will also help us understand that this should not be regarded as a Match in the future. For more details please read the following FAQ articles:
Thank you for the feedback. I have used Discoveries once or twice. Yes, I know how to Reject, however, once you communicate with the person and tell them the error...rejecting could be considered more negative feedback for that person. Now, what if you are related to that person, not knowing prior to the poor match.... you do not want to upset the relatives.... thus an independant review/arbitration would be needed to take place. This would help maintain the accuracy and integrity of the data. Not sure if MyHeritage has this or not, however, it would be helpful.
Thank you for your post here on the forum and I will be happy to explain.

Through the SuperSearch we also provide access to external records however to view these records requires payment and therefore you are being asked to pay for an extra subscription.
The subscription that will allow you access to these external records is a Data subscription.
A data subscription is an annual subscription that allows you full access SuperSearch and Record Matches.
SuperSearch is MyHeritage’s research tool that allows you to search in approximately 5 billion records records from around the world. SuperSearch includes exclusive records from all over the world that, in most cases, are only available on MyHeritage.
Record Matches automatically matches the people in your family tree to the billions of records in SuperSearch and notifies you of matches. A data subscription allows you to confirm or reject matches, view records and download them.
Data subscriptions is offered on a yearly basis.
I hope this has proven useful to you and should you require any further assistance then please let us know and we will be only too happy to help.
If I pay the yearly subscription and get all the information for the tree in one year, then decide I don't need to keep the subscription cause I don't have anymore information to find, will I lose all data by not paying the following year?
