I recently installed FTB on windows 10 under my own Microsoft user profile/login. FTB software is automatically starting in other family members logins prompting them to join or start a family tree. This is intrusive and annoying. How can it be stopped from invading other PC users?
I have a lot of sources that are blank or are duplicates, and I'd like to clean them up. However, the "source usage" button just hangs the software. "Delete source" also hangs the software. Similar problems under Manage Repositories.
Does anyone know how to work around this or fix it?
I am a Premium user, and have the latest version of FTB.
Does anyone else have the following problem or is it just me? I add a Census fact to a person and enter 1841 in the Date, London as the Place and Aged 80 in the Description. I then click OK, but when I go back in the only entries which are retained are Census and 1841. The place and description are not saved. I have had to suspend entries.
I have raised an issue, but am waiting to hear. Anyone else with this issue?
There are several glaring bugs in 8.360 in how places are handled. I have reporting this issue to support but they seem to have gone dark of late.
a) How place names are handled is seemingly random, with some treated as a text string with a limit and others treated as a structured set of fields. The exact same place name is treated both ways with no way to manage how this is being done.
b) When trying to correct place names via the Maps function the bug above causes the update to fail, with the suggested place name lost in the process followed by a lengthy reload of the map to get back to where you were.
c) Using the View -> Places workaround to the 2nd problem avoids the map reload, saving considerable time and frustration but doesn't suggest fixes. It also has the 1st problem where two (or three or four) place names structured identically do not consolidate. If place names are a text stream they consolidate, but if they are structured they do not.
Since there is no practical way to clean up place names on the web site it would nice if this clean-up process would work offline via FTB.
I have about 2000 photos in my FTB project. But, the directory 'My Heritage / my FYB project / Photos' contains more than 13,000 photos. In some cases, I have 11 photos for the same person. So. I have a average of 6 photos for the same person.
Nevertheless, I have only 1 photo attached to each person in FTB (it is OK for me).
My question is: is it normal to have a lot a duplicate photos in the photo's sub-directory?

I recently updated to version 18.104.22.16867. I have a little over 900 people in my database. I exported to a file to make a backup for my cousin. But when I opened the program the next day, it did not have the pictures. I have no idea what caused that. I tried the backup, same thing.
So before I put pictures in again, I decided to correct a few typos here and there. But: now the program is so slow it takes several minutes to open. Then it says "not responding" for a while, then finally opens the database. But if I click on anything or try to go to a different person, it is a minute or longer before anything happens. I have a one year old computer with 10 gigs of ram, 3.80 GHz., 64 bit system with Windows 10 Professional. So I renamed the folder in my documents to "old myheritage" and uninstalled the program. I then reinstalled it, and changed the name back. Exact same problem as before. What could be causing this? I hesitate to upgrade, obviously.
Two days ago I can't synchronize. When I run synchronization I get all updates from online to FTB, but from FTB to online nothing. I tried delete my tree (online and delete project from FTB) and upload backup. Tree was uploaded, but I have not any photos now, and sync not working again. I'm tried this on clean instalation Win 10 without antivir, without firewall.
FTB 8 installed itself and wouldn't load my tree. I backed my tree up from the web site and imported it into FTB 8. It has lost most of my photos and has apparently reset the matches because it is now telling me I have matches which I know very well I have prevously confirmed. It looks as though I'll be faced with a huge amount of work to repair this damage to the version of the tree on my computer. Needless to say synching with the online version has not fixed this. I'm extremely annoyed. Oh and printing out a book still doesn't work. This is quite an expensive service - I'd like it to work!
First time user - just finished inputting all info then noticed one of descendant's appears to have mother different from father's wife - born 3 years earlier and marraige certificate shows different mother's details. I can't figure out how to get her attached to mother rather than wife. When I add mother's details (assumed married as Wee Free but may not be as no death date and since 1870s assume unlikely divorced) I can't get daughter's details attached to correct pairing - has set up seperate record. Any suggestions? If I have to redo all the stuff underneath I will cry!
I have installed Familly tree builder on to a new machine, and i get the following error message "can not create folder" followed by an address that I do not particular want to install my MyHeritage information in as it is a work directory that i can only access (if it let me and it does not) from work.
I used to be able to click on the tombstone picture underneath the names of deceased people in my tree and add a photo. Not only am I not able to add a photo this way but I can no longer view the hundreds of tombstone photos already downloaded. I am quite upset about this and I am wondering how to resolve this issue. Any thoughts or info would be appreciated.
I want to know how to resolve conflicts. For example: Tom and Mary have two kids: Bruce and Bruce David. What really happen is that Tom and Mary just have Bruce David. Bruce and Bruce David are the same person, but many people made match that Bruce is the Tom and Mary's son and now you can't delete Bruce because some people are Bruce descendants and other people are Bruce David descendants. Exception like this can duplicate hundreds of people in the tree. How can we resolve this conflicts telling that Bruce and Bruce David are the same person?
I have tried unsucessfully to open my tree, i tried to open backups and none of them work.... if i lost all my work i think i will lose my mind this is 7 years of work with over 30,000 people in my tree. What do i need to do??? the information should still be there how do i rescue it and why will it not open????
As the topic says, I can not sync my tree anymore! I had my tree synced 2 days ago and since then I have added about 50 records. Today I can not sync anymore as I get an error message (see attachement). I did run the Tree Consistensy Checker and it told me I had over 60 000 faults in my records!!!! Checked about 500 of them and the FTB tells me the date of death is before the date of birth, but the strange thing is that there is NO birthdate added by me to the record only date of death. What has been changed in FTB? I also loaded my backup done the same day as my last sync and get the same error message. How could I sync that tree if it had errors? What has MH done the past two days when it comes to syncing?
When you pull up the family tree with all the face cards. If you zoom into maximum you'll see a tiny pencil and plus symbol each about 2 pixel wide. Now can anyone figure out how to click the right pixels to activate the links?
Looking for immigration/emigration or death records for Susan Hewitt Lubbock. She was born about 04 February 1783 in Norfolk, England, married James Lubbock 27 November 1811, also in Norfolk England. Have her death 15 September 1857 in Norfolk, England AND Norfolk, Massachusetts.
I’m looking for sources or information on Maline Quintine REA, born 10 October 1853 in Claiborne, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, United States. Died 1921 in Pueblo, Pueblo County, Colorado, United States. Married to John Benjamin KEMPER, 31 May 1869, in Columbia County, Arkansas, United States. I've seen her name is spelled many different ways: Malana, Malanie, Malura, Malainy, Malane; but phonetically it sounds like Melanie. QUINTINE is from FamilySearch, but I’ve never seen it in a document. I suspect her parents are George and Emily REA, who lived next door to John and Maline according to the 1870 census (and both men were saddlers), but I’m hoping to gain proof.
