Smart Matches and Record Matches are WONDERFUL, but they can also be very overwhelming especially when your tree gets large. I would like the ability to either hide (or approve en masse) all matches where there there is no new/different information between my tree and the matched information. This way, I can focus my attention only on those matches where there are "New", "Improved" or "Different" pieces of data that I want to do something with.
I commonly see cases where I'll add a person to my tree and get 50 smart matches. Once I've reviewed, approved and copied over the data from the first 2-3 of them which are true matches, then the other 47 are all redundant and it is tedious to go through and approve them all.
Venho por este meio fazer 2 sugestões que me parecem uteis.
- Tenho 2 irmãos casados com 2 irmãs e não existe forma de as ligar, obrigando a repetir a irformação de um dos irmãos, da cunhada e dos descendentes no ramo familiar delas.
- Quando há divórcios, poderiam colocar uma opção para sinalizar se o cônjuge retirou o nome de casada ou não, permitindo construir o nome de forma correta e não perdendo a informação dos nomes de solteira e casada.
Agredecendo desde já a atenção dispensada, cumprimentos
Finding location logic a bit strange, i.e. Bedford, Cape Province, South Africa, finds a Texas location, Google finds this location correctly. Logic seems to look for street address first, as if it cannot find it seems to map elswhere even if the correct country exists. Lots of locations in historic documents no longer exist or have been renamed, generally the country names are constant, so logic should look at this first?
Now that you are offering DNA tests, it really would make much more sense to offer a horizontal pedigree view (i.e. descendants on the left, ancestors on the right instead of the bottom and the top of the screen) so that when I go to look at somebody else's tree, I can see their ancestral lines much easier. Currently it is usually the case that a match's ancestral lines are so far off the edge of the screen to the left and the right that it is essentially impossible to see their ancestral lines.
It is SO MUCH EASIER to view a pedigree horizontally rather than vertically when all you really want to see is the ancestral lines.
I made this same suggestion to Family Tree DNA previously, and they have now implemented it. Ancestry has always had the horizontal view available.
I have a tree design that I would like to propose.
I believe this will enhance the view for large families with several siblings. It reduces the horizontal length of siblings and spouses so that with one look, one may identify all the siblings and their spouses.
My design will have:
- all kids/siblings on one row horizontally
- then spouses of each sibling connected below with a line vertically (So the spouses ar all on one line)
- then each child from a specific spouse connects right directly to the
PLEASE SEE ATTACHMENT.
Can this design be adopted? Who do I write to get this done? Or is it already a part of the options provided?
I work preferably in English, however whenever I am back in The Netherlands it switches to Dutch. It would eb great if you could select your preferred language in your profile to avoid having to toggle it depending where you are in the world.
'Huwelijk' is the same as 'Marriage'. Nevertheless I have records in my tree where the tag 'Huwelijk' is used in addition to 'Marriage'. Would be great if 'Huwelijk' is recognised to be the same as 'Marriage' to avoid duplicates and avoidable suggestions.
It good be nice to see in the tree whether all the matches have been reviewed. For example green if all are reviewed, yellow if some are reviewed and red if none are reviewed. Same applies to smart and record matches.
Would like to compare my tree against another tree to find smart matches. I know the system runs smart matches and sends me hundreds of possibilities, but there are times when I'm looking at a potential relative's tree and would like an instant search for a connection. Thanks.
Verifying Smart Matches and Historical Record matches is work. It's work that benefits MyHeritage customers and MyHeritage.
Provide an incentive for those who only use free MyHeritage accounts to do that work, and increase the value of MyHeritage data for paying MyHeritage members. Provide credits to those who do work to verify or reject matches.
Allow those who only use free MyHeritage accounts to use those credits to contact other members of MyHeritage.
What I find needed is cloud integration since there's no document center. A document center can be created by using cloud integration similar to DocHub or any other cloud drive. Even though this is commonly everywhere we're linking to our backweb especially since there's domain mapping. We have bylaws, ordinances, finance docs etc that's necessary. Typically this is done outside on another network, but the blood-line integration is necessary.
Confidence in a source citation can be documented on the MyHeritage web forms -- but usually just knowing the kind-of source citation is sufficient to indicate how much confidence we should have.
The problem is that although we can be reasonably confident in the cited sources, we cannot be reasonably confident that the individual mentioned in those sources is actually our ancestor rather than some unrelated individual living in the same place in the same period.
I'd like to be able to mark the individuals record (in a way that shows on the family tree) so that we can immediately distinguish those individuals who should confidently be considered as ancestors from those who should be considered place-holders for an unresolved line of research, and those in-between.
For some where little is know, it would be enough to show them on the family tree like the Add Father and Add Mother. We've seen a citation showing "Richard" as father but that's all we know -- so that's still just a place-holder in the same way that "Add Father" is a place-holder.
I can prefix the forename with a question mark but that will probably mess-up Smart Matching. There have been somewhat similar requests -- "Plausible but Uncertain Connections" and "Mark as complete"
I'm fairly new to the site so maybe I just didn't figure this out yet but it would be great if there'd be a check when adding new person (or at a later stage) if that person already exists in the tree.
I know at least in my tree sometimes a person is accidentally added twice (as their own sibling) or maybe they actually should exist twice as a spouse somewhere else in the tree but it'd be great to get a heads up in an early stage before the tree gets chaotic.
Another thing I was hoping for would be a way to check parent/child relationsships based on age. I know there's a statistics tool for "top oldest / youngest parents" which can be used to find errors but I've also found that sometimes a child has been concieved after the mother has already passed away - an obvious error somewhere.
I think a quick check when adding a new person to a tree regarding both these issues would be marvellous - like a pop up window checking validity of age/relationship/duplicity of person.
Just remembered one more thing - a check for deceased. Many times people will have a birth date but not a death date and automatically be added as living.
Would be great with a check reminding to change anyone born before for ex. 1900 as deceased - or even let it be completely automatic - these people are definately not still alive...
I have to say I am very disappointed to find that even though Gays and Lesbians can legally get married throughout the US and Canada, the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and even Israel, we are listed as "partners" on MyHeritage.
Even when you put in that you were married, the date, the place, etc., if you are Gay or Lesbian, instead of being listed as husband/husband or wife/wife, we are listead as partners. My husband is my husband, not my partner.
Whether you are a same sex marriage supporter or not, we are legally married, and are given second class citizenship on MyHeritage.
Any idea when MyHeritage will get around to giving us equality?
i have a few product suggestions for family tree builde. First of all i love the tools in the ftb the checks are so handy!! but i miss a few.
1. make a check to see if you have people in your tree without any parents. if you have this check you can go further back in time for more people.
2. check if there are people who could have children but you didnt add them yet.
or you could make these suggestions in the form of a checklist or a to-do-list for every person in your family tree where you have a to-do-list for every single person in your tree and you can check off if you filled in the: birthdate/place, mariage date/place, birth of children, iif they have listed parents etc, etc, etc.
also i was wondering if any one from my heritage is reading the forums because they look quite dead.... like completely deserted....
Please provide a release notes section for both the app as well as the functionality on the web page. This would improve the user to see whether a bug has been fixed (such as I have always problems with copying marriage data in a smart match (does not work).
