I like many of the report features of Family Tree Builder, but there is one format of report I have not been able to find. If I use the "Descendants" report, I get a detailed report of the family tree by generations, with full details of birth, marriage, and death. If I use the "Descendant Summary" report, I get a family tree report with each descendant listed under his/her parents with birth and death dates and marriage dates if present, but no places.
What I really would like is a descendants' report similar to other genealogy programs I have used before. The format is something like this:
1 Ancestor 1 b. 1854 New York, NY d. 1945 Chicago, IL
Wife of Ancestor 1 b. 1857 New York, NY d. 1932 Chicago, IL m. 1885 New York, NY
2 Child 1 of Ancestor 1 b. 1888 New York, NY d. 1951 Boston, MA
Wife of Child 1 of Ancestor 1 b. 1890 New York, NY d. 1960 Cambridge, MA m. 1910 New York, NY
3 Child 1 of Child 1 of Ancestor 1 b. 1911 New York, NY d. 1970 Detroit, MI
Husband of Child 1 of Child 1 of Ancestor 1 b. 1908 Brooklyn, NY d. 1942 Detroit, MI m. 1934 New York, NY
3 Child 2 of Child 1 of Ancestor 1 b. 1913 New York, NY d. 1940 New York, NY
Wife of Child 2 of Child 1 of Ancestor 1 b. 1913 New York, NY d. 1980 New York, NY m. 1935 New York, NY
2 Child 2 of Ancestor 1 b. 1895 New York, NY d. 1981 Kansas City, MO
Wife of Child 2 of Ancestor 1 b. 1897 New York, NY d. 1991 Kansas City, MO m. 1920 New York, NY
3 Child 1 of Child 2 of Ancestor 1 b. 1921 Kansas City, MO d. 2008 Las Vegas, NV
Second wife of Child 2 of Ancestor 1:
Wife 2 of Child 2 of Ancestor 1 b. 1901 Chicago, IL d. 1986 Los Angeles, CA m. 1945 Chicago, IL
3 Child 2 of Child 2 of Ancestor 1 b. 1947 Chicago, IL
3 Child 3 of Child 2 of Ancestor 1 b. 1951 Chicago, IL
You get the idea...
This kind of descendants' report has the detail of the first report I described with the linear format of the second. Just thought I'd propose this idea.
He estado añadiendo la dirección en mi propia persona en el Family tree Builder. Todo correcto. Sin embargo, esta dirección de mi grupo familiar sólo se añade a mi persona y no al resto de miembros de mi familia, por lo que para que aparezca en cada uno de los miembros es preciso añadirla a cada uno de ellos. ¿No sería posible que al añadir una dirección en una persona nos pregunte si queremos añadir al grupo familiar y a qué miembros del grupo familiar queremos añadir la dirección? Creo que sería una función muy útil y no me parece difícil de implemntar.
Perdón por no poderla haber puesto en inglés pero mi pobre inglés haría que quedase pobremente expresado.
Un saludo y gracias por vuestro apoyo y comprensión
Porque generalmente cada persona tiene su própria dirección de correo electrónico, nosotros no tenemos al momento una opción de atribuir una misma dirección automáticamente a diversas personas en el árbol.
Sin embargo, repasaré su pregunta como una sugerencia a nuestro equipo de desarrolladores del programa.
Note también que para invitar miembros de la família a tornarse miembros de su sitio familiar es necesario que cada uno sea invitado con un correo electrónico distinto, ya que la dirección de correo electrónico utilizada para registrarse a MyHeritage tornase la 'identidad' del miembro en nuestro sistema.
1. I am getting emails for Smart Matches for people who are not in my family tree.
2. Smart Matches icon on the title bar no longer displays number of matches to be confirmed, or otherwise.
3. List of Matching Family Site now broken into two lists: one showing a minimal list of sites for which match confirmed; the other showing outstanding matches. A View All expands the list but this is not satisfactory.
4. List displaying outstanding matches has people that are not or ever been in my family tree. A Compare Tree shows these people in my on line tree. They are not in my PC-based tree and some have never been.
Had to telephone to get a response. Seems these problems may be connected to multiple trees with the same name - no solution as to why these multiple trees were created by MyHeritage.
I see that you have flag images in a small size for use in website etc. As an option in FTB, where there is no personal photo, as well as the options for placeholder, blank, etc, I would like to see an option where the flag of country of birth is displayed. If this option is selected, then where there is no photo (i.e. most people prior to the 1880s), the flag would appear instead of a blank or placeholder.
Alternatively, could there be a better way of attaching a photo to multiple people, so I could insert the photo of a flag once, and then link it to lots of people - the cuurent "associations" process is too time-consuming for this use - for each new person to be attched to that flag, I would have to go to the original persons, select the photo, open the associate tab, locate the person I want to attach, associate them, then adjust the blue box to fit the flag better.
I have recently spent a lot of time going through the photos in FTB, deleting duplicates and making sure that each photo is properly assocuiated with the people in it. This would have been a lot easier if there were:
1: A way of sorting the photos in the table view using the column headings - that is, the normal way of sorting a table in a database, by clicking on the column heading.
2: A way of searching the photo database for a particular photo, by name and/or associations. I have found a photo in an album that I want to copy to another album - which is a great idea, but I cannot find it in the main photo list, and dragging it from its existing album moves it rather than copying. I know that you can put the photo in two albums, but it seems this can only be done from the 'all' photos page - it is difficult to find the right photo out of the over 800 I have.
It would be great if you could turn off record and smart matches for certain people. Especially record matches! I have two people that are in over 300 newspapers and they are even a direct blood line... very tedius to go in and wade through and reject so I can get to the "good" stuff.
There is a reason that the "Save" and "Save as" features have been removed.
Family Tree Builder 8.0 delivers improved data integrity. This means that changes are now saved immediately and seamlessly upon making them, with no need to click on the "Save" button anymore. The chances of data loss while working on your family tree are now extremely small.
Trusting this has proven useful information to you.
Anyone designing database software should first review the Structured Query Language (SQL) standards and should give deep thought to the COMIT WORK and ROLLBACK WORK statements and to the circumstances of real world DB processing that dictate their need.
Well, you are assuming too much. There are times when I am making changes or trying functions that I don't want to save. Now you force me to back out changes, and I may not be able to do that. I believe you have creatred a dangerous situation.
What I do is attach a source image, which is a photograph of a record from a book. The record is usually difficult to read and in another language, so I provide a transcription and a translation in the description box. To make this legible I use line breaks similar to the original text and also additional line breaks between the different language versions. There is often very poor punctuation in the transcription because no punctuation existed in the original text - they used line breaks too. However, these line breaks are removed by MyHeritage making the whole thing very difficult to read.
I would advize you to contact the support team from your MyHeritage registered email address and outline the problem you are having. Also if you can provide examples within your email this will assit the agent with their service to you.
In FTB, when right-clicking on a person and selecting "relation" to open the relationship calculator, the result is in text. For example :
A is the daughter of B
B is the sister of C
C is the husband of D
D is the brother of E
E is the father of F
and so on. While this is useful in some ways, it is not easy to see whether A and F are what I would call "close" or "distant" relatives - whether they are actually blood relatives or related by marriage. I would really appreciate an option to show the relationship graphically. Names would not be important (though some users might prefer them), so something like dots joined by lines, where a single dotted horizontal line is a marriage, a solid horizontal line a sibling, and vertical lines show descendents/amcestors. The above would look sonething like (forgive the poor representation, as I am limited to typed characters):
I inserted the letters for clarity, but all I am asking for are dots to represent the people. maybe pink and blue to indicate sex. Looking at this digram, I can see MUCH quicker that A's parent's sibling's spouse's sibling's child is F, than I could in the text format. I can also quickly see that A and F are related by marriage, not blood.
Given that your program has already calulated the information in text, converting it to the diagram should be easily programmed.
You could widen the realtionship calculator window and add the diagram to one side of the text/memo box.
What it is doing is that it is disallowing any query to be posted on the site. It just displays a loading message and nothing happens...
Your older method of contacting customer support was functional and response was also good.
I wanted to find out how to nest a photo album into another album. For example, I make a grandparent album, under it make parent albums and under them albums forall the children. Automatically all photos would get loadedin thecorrect place.
I am unable to find out how to nest an album within another. Something akin to a tree structured directory/folders
Please guide me how to do it,
And in case the faciliy is not there, please buildit in.
