MyHeritage Destructive Sync Feature
Robert Givens said: MyHeritage has just announced a new feature that allows users of their site to sync the people in their MyHeritage tree with the corresponding person in FamilySearch Family Tree. The MyHeritage person is the primary person in this syncing process so any sources not found on the MyHeritage person are automatically deleted from the person in Tree. Then the process goes and adds everything that is on the MyHeritage person only to the person in Tree. PLUS, and this is the worse thing, it somehow is able to remove the links for the sources from Records at FamilySearch so no sources are now showing as being used in FamilySearch. In my LDS line that I have checked my ancestor William Furlsbury Carter has 210 changes in the change log from one user. Richard Carter Sr. has 26 changes and Benjamin Carter has 46 changes. I don't even want to look further. We have worked for years to get this pedigree accurate and well documented with FS record sources and now no Record sources are linked any more. I have no clue where to even start or if it is even worth it to try to fix things. Collaboration is one thing - but this is a destructive feature that I feel should be shut down immediately.
