I entered details for my Mother and Father and the system assumed they were married and changed my mother's name. The only way I could find to correct this was to remove my Father then add him as a partner, but now he is no longer shown as my Father. I would have thought these days there are thousands of unmarried couples with children where parents keep their surnames but you do not seem to be set up for this. I don't expect to be taking my research any further with you.
When I created my family tree, I called it "Sinisi" Family Web Site. However, since there are thousands of "Sinisi" families, I would like to change it to something more specific. Can I do that? I would like to change it to Joseph Semone Sinisi Family Web Site.
Can someone or anyone suggest a viable workflow technique to insure that no duplicates get added through discoveries? I suppose I could check each entry for a pre-existing record but it seems to me that there should be a better method. Granted it is better than deleting duplicates. I would love to hear of any good method.
I am looking for my great-grandmother’s death date. Her name is Alice Mary (Wise) IVES. She was born in 1869 in Sandhurst, Berkshire, England. She married William Henry Ives in Sandhurst in 1890. They emigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in 1894. In 1898 William remarried and I don’t find any evidence of Alice after her arrival in Canada. I checked Manitoba Vital Statistics and there is no record of her death. Any suggestions?
I have a tree with ~7000 folks in it stretching back to first century BC. I want to push discovery of my direct ancestors back as far as I can go on each branch. But where Ancestry.com offers a pedigree display of direct ancestors only for as far back as my data goes. I cannot find the equivalent in MH or FTB. Instead, with so many people in the tree, it is very ponderous to follow any lineage because the tree is mostly horizontal and very scattered as a result.
Is this a shortcoming in the MH and FTB displays? Or am I overlooking some setting that will present a direct ancestors only view (that is, beyond the self plus three-generations basic pedigree chart I find under Charts).
Is anyone experiencing any difficulty with the "SAVE" button after editing the welcome message? The CANCEL button works like a charm; The SAVE button is totally useless. Perhaps a software issue? Thanks for any responses .. Helen More
Well for a paid site, these annoying and continuous DNA advertising offers/tree limit warnings (upgrade to Premium Plus offers) are pretty annoying for me. What about your opinion? Because web could not remember that I closed this offers hundreds of times before I must set up Adblock rule for that:
I just spent a week researching and adding new 500 profiles to my online tree and updating countless existing profiles. I sync'd it with Family Builder and instead of adding the new data to Family Builder, the sync reversed all of the changes that I've made.
Of course, tech support isn't open and I'm beside myself. Does anyone have any experience with this? Does myHeritage do running backups so they can restore my tree? It had over 7,200 entries. and now has less than 6700. It's not just the time to type in 500 new profiles (which is a LOT) and edit countless other profiles, but I don't think I can retrace my steps in finding all of that data.
I really hope someone checks the forums this weekend and can reassure me that all of my data will be restored.
