    A great presentation of an excellent system, which continues to improve over time! However, the standard colours for most charts, hard-copy filing systems and family tree software are:
    Paternal grandfather’s quadrant – BLUE
    Paternal grandmother’s – GREEN
    Maternal grandfather’s – RED
    Maternal grandmother’s – YELLOW
    For some reason MyHeritage has chosen to swap the RED and YELLOW quadrants. Could you please consider changing this to match the standard used by everyone else.
    These fancharts are one of our primary tools for “enthusing” family members about our shared history and recruiting cousins to join our family DNA project to help solve our mysteries and unanswered questions.

    Awesome as always

    Awesome! I like MyHeritage more and more as time goes on. AND I know they listen to their users. Thank you MyHeritage. 🙂

    Awesome! love the color coded fan chart!

    Beautifully concise and in both examples and presentation. Learned a lot about the various tools available.

    Brilliant webinar with lots of great information to make using the My Heritage tree an even better experience.

    Clear, concise, and informative

    Didn’t know I had that many ways to use MyHeritage – sure gives Ancestry a nudge!!!! Thank you all so much for these free webinars!!! Wishing you all a great week!!

    enjoyed knowing about upcoming changes and features. Thank you for showing the FaceBook user group because I had questions that were not answered about ancestors that completely changed their names and how to put it into a tree and if the tree views support and have a way to show the double names. Thanks


    Excellent explanation of the various views and the benefits of each. I also like getting that glimpse into future improvements

    Excited to see the new MyHeritage features. 🙂

    Exciting things happening at My Heritage!

    Fabulous presentation on the different views and so many of the settings and ways to set things up! I love the fan view, but now I know more about working with the other two views as well. Only wish that there was an easy way to merge two identical people who were entered just “a little differently!” 😉

    FAN chart is fab. It spurs me on to finally upload my GEDCOM to this site.

    Glad to see the new views coming to MyHeritage. Because I am not a power user of MyHeritage, it was nice to see some of the things that I have forgotten.

    Good solid overview and preview. Thanks,

    good stuff! Excellent to learn more about MyHeritage! Thank you, Uri & Geoff!

    Having been using MyHeritage for a while, but learned so much this afternoon! Can’t wait to get started again! Thanks Geoff and Ari.

    He is very knowledeable & explains things well.

    I am fairly new to My Heritage and have not used many of the features. Thank you for this helpful webinar. This has really excited me about trying some of the features that I didn’t know about.

    I am not that familiar yet with MyHeritage – I have been more active to date with other providers.

    I find each Webinar I watch to be very helpful — it’s amazing what all can be done that I need to learn about. Today’s plus was learning of another one to sign up for that I know will be as helpful. THANK YOU

    I have a My Heritage subscription for the DNA matches, but have never explore the various tree views. I will now!

    I learned a LOT of new things about MyHeritage that I didn’t know about…the different tree view, the buttons, the “more” list, the “gear icon”. Thank you!

    I learned a lot of new ways of viewing and using the family trees on MyHeritage.

    I learned a lot of very helpful tools.

    I learned so much and am convinced that I need to use My Heritage much more. They appear to be a company that puts the needs of the user/researcher in the forefront of design innovations. I like them more and more.

    I learned so much! and all of it is free. Maybe I dialed it incorrectly. do have a subscription, but it makes it much easier to talk to other people about things that are free. Thank you fo much for a clear, easy to understand presentation.

    I like knowing what improvements are coming to My Heritage. Thanks for sharing.

    I like the new tee features that are coming

    I really learned alot. I have been adding names but wondered how to do a display as you have shown today. Thankyou

    I wasn’t aware of the different views. I learn something new with every webinar.

    I wasn’t familiar enough to really get excited about this. Thanks for posting where to find all the webinars for My heritage.

    Thanks Geoff for walking us thru a live tree demo.

    Thanks to URI & Legacy for this very informative & helpful Webinar. Somethings are coming back to me after over a decade of absences. Doing a superb job.


    The fact that Geoff worked with the presenter to do actual examples from his own tree/account on MyHeritage made this much better than without his examples.

    This was so helpful for a new user of MyHeritage. Thanks!

    This webinar was very good. I enjoyed the presenter Uri and I learned a lot. Looking forward to the new features that are coming to My Heritage.
