My Heritage Family Tree Builder makes bad GEDCOM files
09 October 2013
Reviewer: Tim from San Diego, CA

I tried My Heritage Family Tree Builder and made a GEDCOM file that I imported into PAF. I got a whole long list of _UID errors and a bunch of marriages of unknown people. So I tried importing it into another popular program, Legacy Family Tree. Same problems there. I say don't waste your time with My Heritage Family Tree Builder. It makes really weird GEDCOM files that don't seem to import well into the few other programs I tried them on.

In summary, I would not recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.

Name limit Only applies to server site

I was confused at first when I reached the magic number, I think 250, discovered it ONLY applies to PUBLISHING, you can still add names for storage on your own hard drive at home. If you wish to share further data, you should just have to get a copy of your database file directly to the family member you wish to share with, then they should only have to copy and paste the file in the folder labeled 'Database' it's listed as a filetype Compressed GEDCOM file. I do it frequently when I've made updates at home and wish to continue updates at in my spare time at work, you just have to install the Family Tree Builder program on the remote site and replace the existing datafile with the one with the latest changes, you still can't add to the server site file but you can still build your family tree and share with select others. You still get 'Smart Match' notifications on what's on the original 250 names on the server but not on what is stored off-site. You still have access to all the free report and chart generation features on your 'expanded database'.

In summary, I would recommend Family Tree Builder (by My Heritage) to a friend.
