I'm looking to build a family tree that doesn't start with me. I have a family tree that I have been building on paper but would like to make a cleaner version digitally. I've tried to use the free software but it doesn't show the person whom I've typed the information in for. It shows that I've typed the information in before but the person doesn't show up in the separate tree I've created. How does one go about getting this paper info moved to digital?I would greatly appreciate the help.
Just starting using this software. I have noticed when adding photos that some or showing up horizontal and not vertical. I can't seem to figure out how to fix this problem. The editor does not have an option on how to turn the photo to veritical. Any suggestions out there?
I'm having an issue with the 'places' section on the FTB program. I've tried fixing it several times but they keep coming back. This is just one example. In photo 1 you'll see 4 variants of Kallstadt, Germany; but in photo 2 (from the maps section) you'll only see 1.
I have the same problem with a few other locations that seem to come back everytime I sync the tree to the site.
I'm currently using FTB for Windows v188.8.131.5297 in combination with Android Mobile App v4.4.7 both in Czech language while native OS language is English.
The problem I've experienced is that some entries entered in Czech disappeared after a while which resulted for example in empty First & Surname entries in Czech. Later I discovered there stored as English language entries without any Czech counterparts (and vice versa).
I have strange issue. When I import GEDCOM file to FTB I have all photos and associations to valid person - all seems to be OK. But after sync to site I can see only first photo (personal) and the others are not associated with person. All photos are transferred to server - I can see it and use in photo menu, but they have not assosciations to person (like in FTB). What could be a problem ?
I have added e-mail addresses to a number of Profiles in my FTB tree. However, after Sync they do not appear in the online tree. To Invite a person, I must key in the address on the web site. Is this as it should be?
Just wondering if anyone noticed if there is an problem with the sorting of names by ID number in the People pane at the left of the screen in Family Tree Builder version 7?
When I first open FTP, all 6036 names in my current database are sorted properly in order from 1 to 6036 (picture 1) which is convenient as I can always tell the last name entered by jumping to the bottom of the list. However if I resort another way and then come back and sort it again by ID number, it looked like I was only getting 5499 names (picture 2) until I looked further and then found that the sorting was crazy - it sorted ID numbers 1 to 5428 then jumped to 5500 and continued to 6036 and then the next one was 5429 up to 5499 at the end (last 2 pictures). That is wierd why its not putting those IDs in the proper location in the sorting.
databases - one with 349 people in and one with 4500 people in - they are the same and a by-product of my heritage having to rescue my tree after an upgrade. Can I delete the smaller one? If so, how please?
Aksi, is it possible to be able to see the whole tree??
When I launch FTB (184.108.40.20604), it presents me with display of databases: mine (site 22050470) and another (Whinna), to which I have no connection and about which I have no knowlege. If noone can help me in this forum, I will repost this problem in another.
So now my Premium account has expired and as stated, on this site, I will not renew it UNTIL some changes take place:-
1. No more 'Sync' restrictions on customers who have developed data bases with a large number of profiles. You have compromised our ability to use the 'Research' function which is a tool I rely on to be up to date AND PAY FOR as a Premium member.
2. You acknoweledge the pitfalls within FTB ver #8 and actions taken to remedy them. Many have been reported on this site and I have submitted reports to your support team WITH NO RESPONSE! Hense my reverting back to ver #7.
3. You improve your (so called) 'Support' division to make sure ALL paying customers inquiries are actioned.
Send me an email when these 3 complaints have been addressed and I may consider renewing my account.
I am trying to use the places and mapping functions of FTB but it seems to act very randomly.
1. Some places are not known to FTB wich is OK. At the right side there is a question mark showing that the place could not be found. But clicking on that question mark give a strange response, see Details-fact.jpg. It says "No internet connection - place could not be found". Therse no problem with my Internet connection. It would be much more useful if a place fact window would open where I e.g. could give the coordinates for this place so that FTB would know in the future.
2. Using the Maps for solving above issue works very strange. When starting the Maps I got the window shown in Maps-1.jpg.
After moving and scrolling I get i right. I then use the advanced search and searches for the person in question and gets the view seen in Maps-2.jpg. As you can see part of the place name is grey. I assume that this indicates that the place is not found. The only part that is blue is Sverige (Sweden). So FTB knows it is in Sweden. Now I can click on that part and a window opens, see Maps-3.jpg. At the top it says Edit/fix this place. Clicking on that gives me a new window which is almost the same as the previous but there is an link at the top which is barely visible. See Maps-4.jpg.
Clicking on that link brings me to the window shown in Maps-5.jpg As you can see I now have the option to enter coordinates. So, entering the coordinates for the place in question and clicking OK actually brings me to the correct spot. See Maps-6.jpg. The big problem here is that as soon as I leave the Maps view and comes back. These coordinates are gone. They are never saved.
Hopefully some of the FTB developpers are reading this. I would very much whish for improvements of the Places and Maps function in FTB.
Made changes today to my tree on FTB. Clicked sync button, and it still says I need to sync. I have tried three more times, and it still says I need to sync. When I go to Sync Settings, it says my last sync was November 25. The sync log says sync succeeded no update. As I updated several people, I don't want to close the program. HELP!!!
I'm having trouble using FTB entirely. I downloaded the program off the website and installed it successfully, but when I load it up, it defaults to the "create a new account" screen. In the top-right corner, there's an option that says, "Already a member?" As I need to connect my FTB to my MyHeritage account so that my tree can sync, I click "Already a member?" and it tells me to log in using my MyHeritage credentials.
I typed them in, and it says they're incorrect. I tried changing my login email, my password, I tried closing and reloading the program, and I even uninstalled it and re-downloaded and re-installed it all over again. Nothing changed.
I called technical support, but they're only available to subscribing members of the website. Seeing as one of their central free products doesn't even seem to properly work for me, I'm not particularly motivated to begin paying for any advanced services. Regardless, they don't offer an option to pay monthly anyways, and yearly is not an option for me. The other customer service line (billing?) was unable to help me as they're two separate departments. I even submitted a complaint ticket A WEEK AGO to see if someone could help me with this issue, but I never received a reply.
The only reason I want to use FTB in the first place is to split a tree I have on another site that doesn't offer the ability to split your tree.
I have the same problem as other in here not beeing able to access my Family Tree on my MacBook after upgrading to High Sierra.
But adding to the frustration: As I tried my Samsung PC, the one I used before converting to Mac about a year ago, My Heritage refused to syncronize (download last web-version to my PC) with the web..!!
When starting the PC, I get info that Family Tree will upgrade the project to make it compatible with this version. At the end ot upgradin, which goes fine, I get message that there is a conflict between versions on PC and web. So I choose download from web to syncronize. I then get the message that it failed. Pls check the log for details.
Might this be because my last version on web was uploaded from my Mac? I hastily read something the like somewhere, but cant find it now.
Is there anybody in here that have the same / have experienced this problem?
I worked in transgenerational analysis and did the genosociogramme of my family .
i ordered a DNA test and started to do the family tree but there is something that doesn’t sounds right forme in the way it is presented.
For a positive symbol we are invited to put ourselves at the top not at the bottom to don’t have like “ to carry”the weight of our ancestors lives .
The last ones being at the top of the tree and not at the bottom...ancestors being as for a tree our roots not the last leaves. More like the flower who grew from the bush ...all roots and branches being our ancestors. We grew from , by them not the contrary .
Could you give this option in the software to be able to choose the way we want to be placed top or bottom, just by an inverting tool ?
