This is my last try to report MyHeritage bug and I hope it will not be ignored as the previous problems.
I create a person and put its job into its details. When the job string contains diacratics, these characters are lost when the tree is downloaded into Family Tree builder. For example, I write job "mistr pekařský" in Online tree, the FTB will contain "mistr pekask" only and this malformed string is transferred back to online tree on synchronization.
It does not happen, if I write such job in FTB directly.
Please, fix it and do not ignore people's problems.
All of a sudden, about a couple days ago, the site stopped showing how I am related to other leaves on my trees unless the relation is incredible simple (basically just direct ancestors and my parent's cousins, otherwise it no longer bother tells you stuff like 3 rd cousin 3 times removed or 3rd cousin's step-brother's wife's son, etc.).
But wow. Oh great so the trees that have tons of leaves, where people would badly need it to work, and become the size you need to pay, then they shut off that feature? So I hit 5000 have to pay $100 a year and for that they turn off this key feature for me???
Yep. And I don't need to be told who my parents and cousins or even 2nd cousins are. I am much more interested in 3rd cousins and more distant relations. Why is there this stupid 5000 rule anyway? FTB 7.0 still does it, but apparently has stopped alerting you to alternate descent or relationships to the same person and showing them upon request. These should be basic functionalities in this day of DNA testing and verification!
You do not need a certain level of membership to be able to invite members to your site or promote them to site managers as you are the owner and creator of your family site and account.
The site subscription Premium or PremiumPlus provides you with additional tools and capabilities that can assist you with your research such as confirming and rejecting of SmartMatches and the amount of people you may have within the site depending on the subscription you have.
No help! Even a novice of my caliber can delete a photo or even an album.
You obviously didn't see the word "duplicate" in my posting.
Didn't the designers and/or coders of this otherwise fine product realize that we mere mortals would at times make dumb mistakes such as mine and provide for us a "search and delete" function for duplicates?
If such foresight and special encoding truly is not present, then that should be corrected soon. When I first enrolled I mentally gave you a Five-Star rating. I'm afraid the stars are losing their luster.
It would appear that you are experiencing duplicated photos due to the fact that you have duplicated family trees within your family site.
Therfore you will need to enter into your family site and decide which of the family trees is the most up to date and delete the ones that are unnecessary. All trees that you have within one family site that have photos are shown in the one photo section of your family site.
The following link will provide you with the necessary instructions for the tree deletion.
I have started 2 new trees which have basically split my family tree into 2 smaller trees, mainly because it is much easier to work with. However I would like to transfer info from my original family tree to the smaller trees. Is this possible?
Unfortunately at the moment within the FTB software there is no way to merge into family trees. This feature has been disabled tempoorarily whilst the development team work on improving its performance.
We apologize for this inconvenience and hope to have this back in the near future,
When I started my first family-wide site I added photos one by one, scanning a stack of old family snapshots. Fine!
Now I am creating new more directed sites and want to add some of those photos from the first site. I don't want to scan them again. I did not save the original scans to my computer so I assume they are stored in a file with my site..? From that first site I can view complete albums with the photos I need.
How can I access those original albums from the newer sites? Probably a simple answer for you "old timers" but my history with you began in January.
Just received an "invitation" by a member of My Heritage on my personal email. I did not accept nor followed the link. When I went to my homepage I found that I apparently already accepted the invitation ?? I would like to "research" this other family site first as I had never seen the name before.There also is no opportunity to "decline" the invitation. Has anyone come across this involuntary acceptance of an invitation ??
Hi Remo, thanks for the suggestion how to "leave" a site one no longer wants to be a member of. Fairly simple steps.
It would have been great to have had the choice to accept or decline the invitation. Better yet to have a way to look up the site/person inviting before accepting. In my case I had never heard/seen the family name before and am leary to connect with people simply interested in taking your research and starting their site. If they have a site already, I'd be more than willing to share my info. Looking up a Family Site/Site Manager is difficult as they are not listed alphabetically either by last or first name.
