MyHeritage: contacting a tree's creator

Post by VotM » 02 Dec 2016, 09:42

The "Ancestry v. Other Genealogy sites" thread sparked a question. Rather than hijack that thread :-), I thought I'd start a new topic.

At present I only have access to the institutional edition of MyHeritage through my local FHC, which gives access to much of their data but does not permit contact with site members. I understand that members with a "complete" (paid) account can contact other such members on that site. But is it possible for a "complete" member to contact either a basic member or a former paid member who created a tree there?

I think that is a question you need to ask My Heritage. I had a go-around with them when I noticed that a member or former member hijacked a photograph of my great-uncle Carmelo Spadaro (born 1883 in Valguarnera) and was using his image for a completely different man named Carmelo Spadaro in her tree. After several emails with My Heritage, the only solution would be for me to join and I refused to do that. They would not contact the person posting the photograph for me. I have since tried to contact the person on Facebook, but Tessy Rap, has not "friended" me and there has been no response to the messages I have left her. :mrgreen: So, this problem remains in limbo. If anyone has any great ideas out there, please let me know.

I have a paid membership. A paid account holder should be able to contact any other user.

Do you have any identifying information on the person that you'd like to contact (could you track them down outside of MyHeritage (on facebook, etc)?

I could contact them via MyHeritage on your behalf if you'd like.

C_Artale...That is a fabulous idea. I appreciate your willingness to assist. Here is the information: It is under "My Heritage Family Trees". The name is Carmelo Spadaro; under "familia Rap, managed by Teresa Rap". It shows a birth date of 1901 and shows a child by the name of Juan Spadaro Yaya. The photograph shown is that of my great-uncle, who happens to have the same name, but was born in 1883. The original photograph has been in my family for over 80 years. Thank you for your help.
Regards,
Bette

Hmm, Teresa Rap is in Spain. But upon looking at her facebook profile, it says she speaks English and Spanish. So language should not be a roadblock to communicating with her.

When did you last message her via facebook? Messages from non-friends used to go to an 'other' folder that most people never looked at (or knew existed). A spam folder, of sorts. Facebook has since changed the handling of non-friend messages, in the past year or so.

I found an email address for her:

rafaelcg2@mi.madritel.es

If you hear no response from her at that email address, let me know and I'll go ahead and contact her on MyHeritage.

Ciao!

I appreciate the offer. So far the only identifying information I have found is their user name on MyHeritage and, of course, their family tree.

The person I am trying to contact is the creator of the "santina sei unica" tree, maintained by "antonino molica nardo". I will PM you with further details. Thanks!

To C_Artale, I sent Tessy Rap messages on FB on July 14 and Aug 1 this year. No response. Do you mind my asking where you found the email address for her?
Thank you,
Bette

To C_Artale, thank you for the email address. I wrote to her on 12/5/16; but no response yet. You can go ahead and write and ask her if that email address is still valid and that I have written her. Thank you. Bette
