After being frustrated with MyHeritage maze to instruct me how to move my file from my old computer to the new (and no live person available to chat me through the process. I posted a review of 1 star and now I can post a 5 star. I finally found a way to get it done.
After closing my open genealogy files I downloaded from MyHeritage My Families, the open program file. It is blank with no data (persons) included. The “MyHeritage” emblem should be on your Desktop. That allows you to access your file after uploading it.
I learned that by neglecting to have the blank file open first, I would receive that Gedcom file that looks complete, but it can’t be saved. That is a bummer.
Start with opening the blank file ready to receive the “upload” file to your Myfamily file. Click “file” and the dropdown commands include “GEDCOM Download.” After clicking on that, Gedcom posts the list of files ready to be downloaded to your new computer blank program. You can choose the file you had uploaded and then sit back as your blank MyHeritage Family Tree opens with the data filled in. If you had included photos in your Uploaded Gedcom file, the “Sync” (publicize) program continues to complete the program. Hope it works for you and you hopefully can breathe again.
In summary, I would recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.
