I have been uploading records from my RM7 database to FamilySearch Family Tree for several years. I am now seeing a webhint light bulb because MyHeritage is reporting a match with the records I uploaded to FSFT.

 

I don't have a MyHeritage account so apparently I cannot confirm a match. Even if I could there are so many matches it would be very tedious to do so.

 

Other than getting a MyHeritage account confirming the matches, is there a way to avoid seeing hints from MyHeritage for the records I uploaded?

Go to Tools>File Options>WebHints and uncheck the option for MyHeritage. You will no longer receive them.

Hi Renee,

 

Thank you for the suggestion but that would suppress all hints from MyHeritage. Some of the hints have been helpful but that was before the FSFT hints started appearing. Now, if there are any useful hints, they are lost among many hundreds of useless hints.

 

What I am asking is this -- is there a way I can suppress hints from FSFT via MyHeritage for the records I uploaded to FSFT? I would like to see all other hints from MyHeritage.

There is no way to filter the WebHints as you wish.
