I have just received a massive number of new record matches (over 1000!)
There seem to be many cases where a couple have 2 plausible marriage certificates - a few days apart in slightly different locations. Mostly 17th and 18th century. Would it have been usual for a couple to have 2 ceremonies, one for each family? If not, how do I work out which is correct?
Since the implementation of the new discovery format, I keep getting smart matches in the list that when Review is selected, the page shows an empty result with the message "no matches...", It begins with one and is now up to six matches with no data.
Dobrý den, hledám předky od Ing. Stanislava Kopřivy, nar. ve Zďárci r. 1926, pochován v r. 2009 v Praze na Olšanských hřbitovech. Dále hledám ppředky od Věra Kopřivové (Kolegarové), nar. v Kostelci na Hané, nar. 1934, umřela v r. 2012 V Praze. Děkuji.
I continue to see information that has been blended to my family.... example....
Phebe Curtis - My Phebe married William S Terwilliger and then remarried George Rowe. The MyHeritage has linked Phebe with a Gould... Why is the discovery only allowed to deny... and not give reason or know who is placing incorrect information on the site.
I work hard to make sure the information is as correct as possible and I do not like seeing other files with incorrect information.
Maybe I'm just not getting it but with the new layout for record matches I can't confirm straight from the source page.
Instead I have to first click "review match" and then "confirm match" which then takes (some time to load!) me to "extract information..." which I don't necessarily want to!
With a lot of matches this takes minutes for each match so I'm getting really tempted just to reject matches where I see there's no additional information for me. Why is there not an option to confirm match straight from the source page just as there is a reject match option?
First of all, as I am reading through the other forum entries, I heartily agree that the new matching format is confusing and inefficient. Your techies have a hard time understanding the age old concept "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". In my opinion, you have not only made a mess of the matching process, but also have made a mess of the Photo section.
My question today is,....Where do I find the option where one can "ignore" a person in the tree. I have been able to find the "ignore" tab for a family site in the "matches by source" section, but I cannot find an "ignore" option in the "matches by people" section. I have quite a few folks that have been put on my tree that I have no interest in finding any matches for them. In the "old days", one could easily hit the "ignore person" tab. Not now. Where is it hidden? If, for some reason, you took away that option, please bring it back.
In the past I used to receive an email notification when new discoveries or matches were found for my ancestors. I no longer receive these emails. Did something change? How can I begin receiving these notifications again.
Recently I got access to my "MyHeritage" test results for the autosomal DNA test. Then just discovered I could upload the results to the MYFTDNA (myfamilytreedna) website too, what I just did... then surprisingly I got few differences between the results from both sites.
MYHERITAGE said I have: 53% Italy, 11,6% from Scandinavia, 16,8% from East Europe, 0% Western and northernEurope.
MYFTDNA said I have: Western and Central Europe: 48%, Southern Europe 21%, Eastern Europe 2%, Scandinavia: 0%.
