Re: Broken Media Links when Importing from My Heritage Family Tree Builder

Well I can't access the photos or my MyHeritage tree as I don't have a current My Heritage Subscription. I asked MyHeritage's advice and was first told to download a GEDCOM again directly from MyHeritage but not to change the file name and no photos came with it at all. I have asked for the matter t...

Re: Duplicate Records Cause Problems in Diagram View

It's a while since I've worked with databases at this level but your instructions are easy to follow so I have done this and it seems to work. Thank you.

Re: Duplicate Records Cause Problems in Diagram View

Trust me to come up with a new problem! My screen shot doesn't show "duplicated Facts (Events and Attributes)" as I have cleared those in the area of my tree that is in the screen shot since my first post. Is there a text scheme that doesn't show Alternate Names as a.k.a. in diagrams? Wher...

Re: Broken Media Links when Importing from My Heritage Family Tree Builder

Phew. Well, I synchronised my Family Tree Builder with My Heritage. I then created a GEDCOM file from FTB which I placed in my external hard rive, Drive E. I place all files I create in Drive E rather than my computer's on board hard Drive - Drive C, routinely. My computer crashed recently (before I...

Re: Duplicate Records Cause Problems in Diagram View

Apologies for the missing screen shot. Here it is.... Having looked through your replies and experimented further (using the Find Duplicate Facts Plugin) I have deleted some duplicate facts although the duplicate aka I don't seem to be able to deal with. I have looked at the "text scheme select...

Re: Broken Media Links when Importing from My Heritage Family Tree Builder

Well your advice has prompted me to look deeper. The broken links appear not to exist. There are no files in the "E:\Family Tree\GEDCOM Files\MyHeritage GEDs\Smith Family Tree...Photos\ folder" of the file name type shown as broken links. However, looking at examples I couldn't see the fil...

Re: Broken Media Links when Importing from My Heritage Family Tree Builder

Thank you for your welcome. I'm really impressed with the speed of your response! Yes the guidance I followed was indeed the one you indicated and I did synchronise FTB with My Heritage. I can confirm that all the links are windows links rather than URLs and that I have tried the auto repair functio...

Broken Media Links when Importing from My Heritage Family Tree Builder

I was shocked to find 170 broken media links when importing from My Heritage Family Tree Builder after having followed the guidance here. It's strange that some photos have linked satisfactorily but so many have not. Re-linking will be time consuming and in some cases it will not be clear which pers...
