My Heritage Data Matches

Post by JKW » 27 Sep 2020 00:43

I have data matches enabled and I have an account with My Heritage. I can view the details of a data match and when I act on it I am prompted to login to my My Heritage account...

but I get an error "Cookies must be enabled. Please enable your browser's cookies functionality and try again. " and I don't know how to deal with this. This must refer to the built-in browser in Family Historian because no other browser is running on my computer.

Any help appreciated

The inbuilt browser is part of Windows and so is IE based.

Switch to using an external browser and it will work fine. You make the change in Tools > Preferences > Internet Data Matches.

Another workaround I have discovered is outlined below:
Use Internet > Search the Internet..., select MyHeritage SuperSearch, click Go To Site, and Log in to MyHeritage.
While that log in is active the Internet Data Matches ~ Web Search window is automatically logged in.
Mike Tate ~ researching the Tate and Scott family history ~ tatewise ancestry
