MyHeritage.com is evolving rapidly. New features are being added regularly. Some of these changes are refinements to existing features but some add completely new features. I will try to highlight the changes and new features as they occur.
At the forefront of these changes is their DNA Testing and Reporting. For example, in the view of my own DNA report, there are several additions and changes. One important feature is the little gear icon.
In this popup menu, you can choose which of the views, based on the version of the Beta test, that you want to view. Here are my more refined results after applying the latest Beta test.
Another new feature of the program is the Tree Consistency Checker.
This is a valuable addition to your family tree on MyHeritage.com. However, it may precipitate a domino effect with your existing data, especially if you compare what you have with what is on the FamilySearch.org Family Tree, just to mention one possibility. For example, the first entry in my list of problems raises some extensive issues with some traditional information that has been put into the Family Tree by other users. This one problem raises hours of research and review.
The new Photo Discovery section is in the Discoveries tab and then in the Instant Discoveries option.
If you have any Photo Discoveries, they will show up when you click on the link.
One of the issues with the family tree view on MyHeritage.com is the way female names are shown. Previously, changing the view was difficult to find. Now there is a shortcut to change the way female names are presented in your family tree. When you are in the family tree view, there is a gear icon in the upper right-hand corner that gives you a number of formatting options, including customizing the way female names are displayed.
You have several choices and can decide how you want other options to be displayed also.
Stay tuned for more DNA comments and other changes on the website.
