Uploaded a New GEDCOM to MyHeritage, and Created a 10-Technology Fan Chart

 Each 12 to 18 months I attempt to add a brand new GEDCOM to MyHeritage in order that I can obtained File Matches to the brand new profiles I’ve added to my RootsMagic household tree, and in addition to attempt to assist MyHeritage discover widespread ancestors for my MyHeritageDNA matches by increasing the descendants of my 4th and fifth great-grandparents.

I make glorious progress each fall and winter in including new profiles – principally descendants of my ancestors – to my RootsMagic tree (I lose 2-3 family tree hours a day as a consequence of baseball video games on TV within the spring and summer time!).  I now have three timber on MyHeritage:

*  October 2018 – 50,883 profiles.  This one is linked to my DNA and I have not discovered learn how to delete it.

*  January 2020 – 56,012 profiles.  This one might be superfluous now.

*  April 2021 – 62,622 profiles.  That is completely up-to-date as of at the moment, however will probably be out-of-date quickly.  I wish to join it to my DNA take a look at.  Perhaps somebody may help me determine this out!  

In RootsMagic 7, I created a GEDCOM file utilizing File > Export and choosing the knowledge to incorporate.  Right here is the progress close to the tip of the GEDCOM creation:

The GEDCOM creation took lower than 5 minutes, and resulted in a 59 mb file.  I saved it to my RootsMagic > GEDCOM file folder on my pc.

Then I uploaded it to MyHeritage utilizing Household Tree > Import GEDCOM and telling MyHeritage the file path and file title:

This took about an hour to finish as a result of it is a BIG tree.  I went out and did some yard work and obtained some solar and watered the vegetation for the primary time in months.  They liked it!

After I got here again in, the GEDCOM file had been uploaded and I made myself the first individual in it.  MyHeritae lets the person make a 10-generation fan chart – here is a part of mine:

As you’ll be able to see – I am not carried out with my household tree!  I’ve vital brick partitions in each quadrant.  And the tree continues again in time as a result of I’ve a LOT of New England colonial ancestors, primarily from England, and a few from Germany, France and Netherlands, and few from Eire, Scandinavia or different European international locations.  Then there may be my 1% Native American DNA – which might be a fifth or sixth great-grandparent from japanese Canada.
Now I am all set for the subsequent calculation of Concept of Household Relativity and for brand spanking new File Matches for my new profiles.  MyHeritage calculates all the File Matches for profiles quickly after they’re uploaded, and the File Matches embody all of their report collections (not like Ancestry which offers File Hints from solely their largest report collections, and offers them solely when a profile is modified or stimulated).  
I exploit the RootsMagic Net Hints so as to add MyHeritage File Matches by hand to my RootsMagic tree.  I additionally synchronize (utilizing RootsMagic “TreeShare”) my RootsMagic tree with my Ancestry Member Tree each week.  I would like so as to add an up to date tree to Findmypast now, particularly since I’ve added many new profiles of UK and Irish individuals prior to now two years.
C’mon MyHeritage – carry these new Theories of Household Relativity on, and convey on the File Matches for my new profiles – I am prepared!!


Disclosure: I obtain a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and have obtained different materials consideration in previous years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA uncooked knowledge to their DNA product. This doesn’t have an effect on my goal evaluation of MyHeritage merchandise.
