I've been with MH for about 2-3 years now and have had nothing but problems beginning with automatic resubscriptions at double the price being offered and now a DNA kit with a missing swab. I don't get a reply until I've sent at least 3 angry emails. The only reason I haven't gone elsewhere is my reluctance to spend the time learning new software and my concern about the transition of my data. I will however have to do this as I have no confidence in MH. They don't respond to messages on the forum, support requests and emails. I'm not at all surprised to hear people are getting dodgy DNA test.
I wish i read the replies messages first before i order the DNA Kit, one of the bottles does not contain the liquid. I tried to communicate with them by phone but there is always a long waiting list. I wrote them an email and I have not received a response yet ..
And Now i found that the results are inaccurate !!!!!!!!!
I placed an order last night and I am trying to cancel it for a refund before it ships. I tried calling both your Canada and America hotlines with no answer. i have emailed but only got an automated response. I don't want to pay return shipping, please cancel my order and respond to me.
Could I ask if anyone else is having the same problem as me with regards matching historical records on Family Tree Builder. You will know that MyHeritage comes up with historical records that appear in a green box on the individuals record and normally you would open that up to reveal the records that have been cross checked. However when I try now to open the green box up all I get are error messages as per below:
"Could not load QuickSave data: fetch-value-add.php: Match could not be found for match id: I-182861872-7-7000040-R-10446-28950374"
"Object with id: 'individual-182861872-7000237' does not exist"
Could not load QuickSave data: fetch-value-add.php: Match could not be found for match id: I-182861872-7-7000041-R-10443-26258802"
"Object with id: 'individual-182861872-7000119' does not exist"
"Object with id: 'individual-182861872-7000118' does not exist"
just as a few examples of what I have been getting. It is extrememly frustrating as I am now unable to check these historical records any longer!!!
I would welcome anyones advice or whether you are having similar issues. Regards Tony
PLEASE help, I have filled out contact forms but no one ever replies! I have a 440 person tree. I've been working on it diligently. I got an email to download "free" Family Tree Builder. I did but the "sync" failed and said my tree was too large and I need to upgrade. I am not paying for the upgrade, I was told it was "free".
Now I am unable to edit (no little pencil icon) and the "EDIT"tab is grayed out. I tried uninstalling FTB, but I am still unable to edit. SInce I am ALSO unable to create a GEDCOM and move my tree to another site please someone tell me how to get my editing capability back.
After waiting weeks to find out that you cannot upload the raw data generated from My Heritage, I am Wondering, WHAT I can do with this raw data? I surely don't understand, thought this dna test was suppossed to show me my Heritage?
Can someone explain this, or is this just a scam. a waste of time and money.
'It is not possible to upload MyHeritage raw DNA file to the website'
I ask the MyHeritage site management to restore the classic version of the cover page for site administrators, as all regular users, it's better not to think of it, and also add the entire number of upcoming birthdays of relatives!
Just wondering if anyone can explain why a photo would disappear from my family site but still be in the family album. Two photos went missing before and were added again by my nephew. Now, the photo of his wife has gone from her unit again. I don't understand why this is happening, cany anyone help?
On the DNA results page it suggests going to Family Tree DNA, and when I did I entered my Kit Number only to find the data has not been transferred to FTDNA. I have requested this be done and received an automatic reply,
Hi, my name is Merve Gizem Narlık, from Turkey. I had created an account from your website on March 8, 2009. Also, i uploaded 27 pictures of my family. The situation that i want your help is delete my account. In 2009, i was 13 years old and i didnt know what was wrong or right, even my family didnt know that i uploaded their photos.

I uploaded file for DNA matching and it worked about six weeks ago. Now DNA match does NOT exist for my id. I just received email telling me that I have DNA matches but when I click on option to view, there is NOTHING. WHY??? I just rang technical support and I was about 30 in the queue!
I have my DNA from Ancestry and went to download it to my site on here. I followed the instructions and had no problems until I went to download it to this site. When I click on the upload button a message comes up saying I need to sign in to Familysearch. I googled Familysearch and made an account and signed in. Not sure why I did it but I still get the same message when I try to upload. Is there another Familysearch?
For the last 10 days I have been unable to Sync or do SmartMatches or even go to my online Family Tree. I continually get a message saying "the software is unable to communicate with the online site" and the suggestion is that I do not have an internet connection which is clearly not the case as all other internet communications are working fine. After several letters to "Support"???? I have not had any response. Has anyone else had this problem? I can access My Heritage site ok by going through myheritage.com etc but cannot do anything in regard to my FTB anyway.
My mother is British, and is for as many generations as my family recalls, yet my DNA findings show no British, but I am suddenly 20% Italian and Central European. My father is of Swedish ancestry, so that should represent 50% of my heritage, not 80%. Then, this morning I get a notice that the findings are Beta, and that was not mentioned in the ads that lured me into this web site. MyHeritage is complete rip off, I should have spent the extra $20 and used Ancestry, as my sister did. She is half British, with some Irish mixed in---no trace of Italy or Eastern Europe.
