Today I got a nice hint about an obituary for one of my ancestors. When I went to the hint, I saw garbled text (no doubt an OCR problem). So, I clicked the "full screen" button and saw a black screen where I expected to see an image of the newspaper page in question. There was a drop-down list of, I assume, pages in that particular edition of the newspaper, but every page was black. Unable to view the original OR understand the OCR version, I'm left with nothing useful. See attached screenshot.
If you search my Fiance on google he is the only one with his name that pops up, whereas if you search me there are several other people with my name. His last name when searched does not bring up much just the family members whom I already know of and it ends with his great grandparents. His grandfather claims his last name never changed when coming over from Poland and that it has always been the same (I have found passenger lists from the ship he came over on and it's that same). His grandfather while living in Poland was forced into a concentration camp and after everyone from the camp was liberated he came over to America. Does anyone have any idea as to why I can't find anything on his last name? I had heard about peoples names being changed while imprisoned in concentration camps but like I said before he says his last name has always been the same. My fiance can google his last name and tell me excatly how he is related to every person that pops up. I would love to figure out relatives of his further than his great grandparents but have no idea if that's even possible. Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated!
I have found that I am running the same family tree on both my husbands side and my side because there is a common family member in both our trees (by marriage). How do I get the two trees to connect to each other because I am getting lots of matches as a result on both trees within my site.
If you have two family trees with a common ancestor yet in two different sites then you may wish to simply merge the two trees together and then delete the one that is no longer required. Two trees from individual sites can not be linked together as they act individually.
To assit you with the merge process please take look at the following link I have provided for you as I am sure this will help you.
No, you have misunderstood me. I have ONE family tree on ONE site - both family trees are in one tree, on one site. The family tree branches out in both mine and my husbands side. We discovered one person who appears in both our trees, and as a result we now have many common people. I want both our branches to recognise the common people on both sides.
I have a tree for my family and a tree for my wife's family.
I have included my parents and siblings and in-laws, and our children in my wife's tree as well as mine; but our descendants go in my tree (just because of the surname and they have to go somewhere...)
I just ignore matches that go outside those guidelines.
It works well; but please ask, if I have not explained it well...
thanks for the reply. I understand what you have done, maybe i did not explain it properly. I have only one huge family tree on my site, and it covers both mine and my husbands families (plus the extended families) and there is one person who appears in both our sides (my great grandfather). The programme does not allow me to physically connect two people, who are the same persons, inside the tree. Does that make more sense
I just purchased a Premium Plus account. After I do a records search and the list comes up, when i click on "view record" I get a screen telling me I have to pay an additional $7.96/month data subscription to view the record. I thought that was included in the purchase price for the Premium Plus account?
I was planning on changing from Ancestry to MyHeritage, but if I have the pay the additional data subscription fee, that makes the cost way higher than Ancestry.
It appears to me that unlike other services like Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com in which you pay one fee for all their services whether or not you use them, MyHeritage.com allows you to pay only for what you actually use. If growing your family tree is important to you, then you can subscribe to that service alone without having to also subscribe to the data services.
I happen to be more interested in international research and documentation so the data services are FAR more important to me at this time than the Family Tree service. I save quite a bit of money because I pay only for what I want/use.
It may seem to some like MyHeritage is "nickel-diming" us, but when you look at it critically, you realize the value, imho.
Thank you for your question here on the forum and I will be happy to explain.

I am researching Cornelius Sleiter- Schleuter, his wife Johanna (Adrianna) ?. He was born about 1800 in Holland and she was born about 1799 in Holland. They have a daugher-Mary (Sleiter) Harvey married to Wolfer Harvey. Anyone have any information or photos of these people.
I am also looking for Wolfer Harvey's parents. Wolfer is born in Amsterdam, Holland on May 1831 and Mary is born abt. 1830 ?? Holland maybe in a town called Burinisse, Holland (Zeeland). Any more information on this family is appreciated as well as photos if there are any.
Thank you in advance for helping me on these families.
I am certain that there are errors in our tree regarding and many others William Gooch (1717) and the family one generation above and below. I am lost with finding valid, accurate information. Other users have blindly confirmed matches that are obviously wrong, compounding the rate of error through out MyHeritage community.
Can anyonehelp validate the family of William Gooch.
Birth New Kent, Hanover County, Virginia, Colonial America Circa 1717
What further infomation are you looking for in regards to Leroy Estor TOMS (1903 - 1971) and Leona Mae GREEN (1910 - 1996) that you have on your Ancestry tree, as the parents of Franklin Donald TOMS (1932 - 2007) who marries Marie Irene Lynette DION (1932 - 200)?
I am looking for a marriage record on my great-grandparents. They were Anton Häfner, (8 June 1883 - 8 February 1958) born in Laudenbach, Bayern, Germany and Barbara Ackerman (21 February 1885 - November 1916) born in Reinhausen, Bavaria, Germany. I am quite sure that Reinhausen is part of Regensburg but have no idea where Laudenbach is. They lived in Nürnberg, Bavaria, Germany, and both died in that city. My grandmother, Apollonia Häfner was born on 3 February 1908 in Nürnberg. Neither Barbara nor Anton ever came to the United States.
I do not have a marriage date for them, but my grandmother was their oldest child so suspect they were married sometime before her birth. I know that they were Roman Catholic. Other than the information posted here, I have no other information on them.
Does anyone how I can find information on a great great grandfather that was born in Portugal but came to the states and married and had his children here. I hit a dead end everytime. Where can you look for this information, I cant complete that side of the family with this information.
