  • What’s the problem?

    By Cre8iv66
    Hello since yesterday June 30, 2018 every person in my own tree in the app, including myself is now suddenly marked private. I cannot see their name and they do not come up in a search of the tree. I have to tap on their name to see their information in the tree if I know who and where they are to read any information. I have used the app on my iPhone and iPad for 18 months with no problem until today. The family tree builder new version this week on the computer is fine. But now in the app, I cannot search for anyone who is still living, on either the app on the iPhone or the iPad as the names do not come up. I have to know who they are and find them that way in the tree itself. There is no privacy settings in the app to adjust or turn on or off, so I cannot fix this problem as it came from your end. What have you guys done??? Please fix this privacy issues immediately as I cannot do anything on my personal tree and I just renewed my subscription. Please advise. Thanks

    There are certain things in this app that it is great at accomplishing. I have found a lot of information here that I have not found on other sites similar to this one. Not to say that there aren’t still some seriously necessary tweaks that could be done. 1. Every time I shut this app, just for a minute or 2, it takes me back to starting position. So when you want to go back to what you were working on, you have to find it again... and again.... and again.... and again. You get the gist? 2. I work this on an IPad and it’s the only app I have that doesn’t support split screen so that I can use it and another app at the same time. Opposing apps have to sit on top of the MH screen as the MH screen will not shrink or draw up from the toolbar. 3. When adding a picture of someone to their profile, why does it add a second picture to their album. The album that has the exact same picture? Makes no sense. 4. Where is the information sources after you approve them. Sometimes I like to go back and verify my information is correct or consult it to possibly draw more information from and finding it is a booger, let me tell you!! That’s all I got for now. I will check back if any of these things change any time soon.
  • Overwhelmingly Informative

    By StephanBi
    It’s easy for someone like me to get addicted to this app. The makers are continually tantalizing me with new information that is usually pertinent. Consequently, I’ve found over 10,000 people who are likely relatives. They’ve found plenty in America, but none of the relatives I know of in Italy or Spain. The number of generations that are tracked are limited to a degree - you can find ancestors 20 generations back, but they may not be flagged as ancestors and it may be frustrating to print out every part of a tree. The most irritating aspect is that they will show the mother’s maiden name, but won’t automatically add it to their profile. You will have to copy it by hand. After years, and thousands of users, why haven’t they fixed this bug?
  • Impressed

    By Tangomaster2
    Pleasantly surprised how easy it is to use the MyHeritage app. Am using the free version for now, hoping to enter as many family members and data as I have on hand. Probably and most likely will subscribe at a later point. Seriously interested in having my DNA tested too. Nice to see family tree expand, love the ability to add profile picture to each family member. This app lets you use family sharing, that’s a plus in my book. Give it a 5 + star rating and will recommend this app to anyone that is getting started on their family genealogy.
  • Good but not yet great

    By Puffball27
    I love this App. I have over 26,000 entries and it handles them well. The search is good but seems to ignore important search values like dates. The Discover option is nice but I’d like to be able to turn some searches off. I get over 80 discoveries for some people (notably LDS) and, while I don’t have an issue with it I really tire of dealing with them. Even when I go through all 80 discoveries for a particular person a few days later there are 84 more for the same person! That is not ok. In searches there is the option to select just family tree returns and that is very helpful. I would love to see the option of selecting the how many branches off the direct line. There is not good tracking of direct ancestors and I’ve found the only good way is to assign a special picture for all Direct ancestors. That way when I look at the various trees I can always find my direct lines. I doubt the tracking with a special icon would be difficult. Direct Ancestor tracking seems to fall apart after 8-12 generations and it would be nice to see that addressed.
  • Disappointed

    By krystledreams
    Attempted to use this app to build a family tree. I was drawn to the idea of being able to use photos for each member. I clicked to add a photo, selected photo, cropped the photo, clicked save and it wouldn’t show or save. It just showed a wheel spinning like it was loading. I tried it at least 5 times for multiple people on my tree. I finally got it to work and saved. I came back the same day, and everything was there. I was excited. The next day (today) I come back and most of the pictures and relationship were gone. Thankfully, I didn’t put a ton of time into this project. Disappointed with the apps save feature and disappointed that it isn’t always user friendly.
  • Help

    By 1,2,3,ofsameperson
    I am now on my third time attempting to get my tree straightened out. Whenever I confirm somebody it’s great, however if their name comes up again and I want to just save new info, I find I have them listed in another place. Is there anyway I can just merge this info. I have gone as far back as 25 generations and have assigned a number to each generation, I really don’t want to start all over. If I can merge I am willing to go in and erase all generation numbers assigned to each individual. I called and was on line with one of your associates and she stated I was doing everything correctly. Please advise, pretty frustrated at this time. 1,2,3,sometimes 4 of sam person
  • Constantly logs you out

    By lawgal
    Like many other complaints here and elsewhere, my number one issue with an otherwise decent app is the fact that you are logged out often just by switching between apps even for less than a minute, sometimes after 5 minutes of going back and forth. So long as the app is open you should remain logged in. This is a serious flaw for people who are trying to perform research and otherwise use the app. I cannot understand how the company hasn't yet addressed this serious flaw in all of its many updates.

    I am very much enjoying my experience on My Heritage! It has become a fun and interesting hobby for me. You start the tree and My Heritage provides you with info to help you move along. Before you know it, you are reading documents like census info and newspaper articles about your ancestors! It will cost you some money, but if you're really interested in learning about your heritage, it's really worth it!!

    By rcstvsybua
    I Love my heritage! & I have the annual upgrade which is definitely worth it and one of the best rates compared to competitors. However I must say the website is much better than the mobile app. The mobile app is wonderful but it could use some improvements & updates to have at least some of the detail that the website has. Overall, I am impressed. It is my favorite and primary genealogy site! & the customer service is always attentive and helpful! 😋
