I am trying your site. When I have specific information, date of birth, place, date of death, place, name. Why does 80,000 people come up in the search? Some with different cities and names than the specific name I used and state.
While I've been using the free trial, I have found some new information that wasn't recorded on the web version of some documents (i.e. immigration records, census records) as well as some typographical errors when the information was made electronic. Is there a way to suggest an edit onto the electronic copy of the documents?
For example, while looking at immigration logs for one of my ancestors, I noticed that her brother and sister were also on the same log, but that is not included on the web information as it is often on other documents. Another example is when transposing the text from some census records, the handwriting caused some translation errors. Siberia became Liberia, even though on future census materials it's listed as Siberia as well. The handwriting SAYS Siberia, but whomever typed it up wrote the wrong word.
I have looked all over and clicked, etc. etc. My father, John Howell Brame, died 25 April 2015. (His birthday is 25 December 1929) How do I add a death date to his profile. I can't seem to find anything that will let me edit or add to his profile.

I am looking for information on the birth of my ancestor Christian Remund. He was born in 1810. His father Christian Remund Sr. was apparently born in 1791 but that would mean his father was only 19 when he was born. Christian Remund Sr. was then apparently only 18 when he was married. His mother, Elisabeth Scholl was born in 1793, so she was only 17 when he was born. I'm just looking for a marriage licence for Christian Remund Sr. and Elisabeth Scholl.

Josiah WADDELL married Lucy E HALL, 1 April 1861 in Knox County, Illinois. I am looking for a divorce decree. It is believed that they would have been living in Knox County. A son, Lester was born in 1861, and a son Lewis in 1863. Both boys went by the name WADDLE as adults, and we are not sure when Josiah (sometimes Joel) made the transition. Any guidance as to where to look would be appreciated.

'We found a Record Match for your 1st cousin 3 times removed, Thomas Chester Ansdell, in the collection Compilation of Published Sources.'
OK - except it doesn't relate to Thomas Chester Ansdell; it relates to his father, Richard Ansdell. And it dates back to the same year Thomas Chester Ansdell was born.
It's a list of members of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire, 1846 session. The name Ansdell, Richard appears on the list, along with an address which makes him identifiable to me. However the Record Match program has failed to neatly pick this up. Instead it's taken his surname Ansdell; the town name Chester (from 2 other member's addresses) and the Christian name Thomas, which is the first name of seven of the other members on the list, to come up with the name 'Thomas Chester Ansdell' - which, of course, doesn't appear as a person's name anywhere on the list.
While I find this mildly amusing it is also very sloppy. The programming for this function of the website clearly needs a lot of work.
Anyway, I've saved the record to my 1st cousin 3 times removed, and now I'm going to see if I can add the record to the father and then disconnect the son from it.
And this appears to have worked.
I had this same issue with 8 more Record Matches, one after the other, that should have been linked to the father but were linked to the son.
I have run across a problem when adding people to my FTB tree through a discovery match.
After syncing, FTB sets all people added through a discovery as relationship = 0, which means that they are supposedly the home person. Attempting to look up the relationship to myself (by right-clicking and selecting relationship to me) just gets a screen saying that the person is the home person.
The attached file shows the problem. You can see that the 12 recently added people all have relationship = 0.
Closing FTB and reopening gets all the relationship information reset, but this should be done when the discovery is added during the sync, shouldn't it?
Again...! This has been happening on and off for the last few weeks and getting worse. I am in the United States and look for records in US papers. My searches are bringing up very few of the US papers, and again, today, the only papers that came up in my search were newspapers from Australia. Get your act together MyHeritage. No matter what I put in the search box, even for an exact search, the only papers that come up are from Australia. A response from administration would be appreciated.
