If it is obviously the same person, even if not every single piece of info matches, I confirm. If the info in the match is likely better than mine, I correct mine. If mine is better, it is up to the other person to correct his or hers. In very rare cases (it used to be more frequently) I get in touch with the other person, if his/ her info is especially wrong or interesting--I have turned up some gold nuggets that way. Remember that the farther you go back in time or out in space, the more often spellings are haphazard and dates calculated or estimated.
Thank you for your help. That is generally what I've been doing but recently had a rejection that didn't seem too far off the sender's information which made me question the process. I'll just continue what I've been doing.
When I add information (birth and death dates, names of spouses, etc.), I get the message "An error occurred. Please try again later", see attachment. Over and over. Sometimes when I exit the app and start over the information miraculously appears, and sometimes it does not. I have been in touch with support through both email and phone and have been told they have no idea what is causing this. I have deleted FTB, reinstalled it, syched it and nothing. Please, has anyone else had a problem like this or any idea what I can do. I would hate to lose all the people I have added these past 4 months. Thanks for reading.
Thank you, Ben. I was beginning to think it was my computer and had it looked at. Computer fine. I have tried everything I can think of on my own and sent screen shots and talked to them on the phone. Please let me know if they get back to you with a solution, and I will let you know as well.
I just opted out of my premium subscription ( ending in a few months) and wondering what are the maximums when my plan reverts to the basic plan on the renewal date and what things will disappear? The premium provides unlimited strorage and family tree members. What does the basic plan provide? Also, I am currently consuming about 4 GB ( 4,000 MB) - what photos will disappear and what will stay? And can I get them back?
When you revert back to a Basic family site subscription you will then have a limit of 250 people for your family site. Nothing however will disappear from within your site as far as your information (profiles and photos) is concerned. The only things that will disappear are your Premium features such as confirming and rejecting SmartMatches.
The storage issue may be resolved by contacting the support team should you need it. Again your photos will not be removed as we do not remove or delete any information placed by users within their own family sites or trees.
Hi! I'm looking for John Dale's parents. He was born in Wyberton, Lincolnshire, England. He died in Gosberton, Lincolnshire, England. B. 1789 D. 1867. I have a possibility, but would like to confirm it.
It is "ex auctoritate vicarii generalia" - "The authority of the Vicar General" see https://books.google.fr/books?id=imrPAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA62&lpg=PA62&dq="The authority of the Vicar General"&source=bl&ots=9Wj-59hvBh&sig=crzRWRDC8gXJ_jtGf-pPjX80f1o&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj6oOHCgKDMAhWBrxoKHZZ5AKgQ6AEIHzAB
This is the second time since March that the United States newspaper archives are not available for research. For weeks MyHeritage newspaper archives was unavailable without any explanation except "We are sorry" - no response to emails or phone calls. Now again, the local United States Newspaper archive is unavailable. No Preview Available for papers I've been researching through since I subscribed to this website. I am tired of it. I see the cute little icon of a newspaper but nothing to go with it. Get your act together. More and more people are unhappy with this poorly run research site. I want what I paid for, the newspapers.
Did the Newspaper site ever come back up to working order for you? I had been offline for a couple weeks and just went to research some items this past week. Cannot get full screen to come up at all. It's just blank. So tired of this website not working properly!!
