    Why is this website private?

    The majority of people are uploading family trees and
    maintaining them directly on the web, instead of using
    computer-based software for genealogy research like we do.
    Webmaster beleives that there are some good arguments
    for maintaining master genealogical research in a local
    file system on an offline computer.

    As of 2006 we have used Family Tree Maker (FTM)
    in collaboration with Ancestry®. We enjoyed their services
    and technical support until 2014. Problems started as of 2011
    (ex: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). Family Tree Maker was sold out in 2016.
    We temporarily lost data and could not get effective support.

    Then we periodically reviewed collaborative family trees
    in particular MyHeritage, Geni, FTJP and Ancestry.

    We found too many mistakes within private family trees
    published via MyHeritage, Geni, Ancestry®, as well as
    FamilySearch Family Tree. We also found that a few
    Geni's Curators (team of expert volunteers) did not help
    to remove errors found within "Geni's World Family Tree".

    The Support Team of MyHeritage failed to respond timely.
    We had asked them to enable data transfer between
    Family Tree Builder (FTB 8.0) and RootsMagic (RM),
    which is our favorite offline software ****.

    We can view MyHeritage (MH) hints, using RM, but unable
    to sync or import directly data like we do with other services.
    Moreover, MyHeritage has been full of bugs. On the top of it, they did not
    "allow" a download of FTB User Guide, and they failed to reply timely.

    Ancestry® and FamilySearch Family Tree (in contrary
    to MyHeritage®
    ) enable data exchange with RootsMagic.
    However their databases do not cover yet the Jewish and
    Israeli existing resources that we are looking for.

    Consequently we don't rely on commercial sites that were
    found unreliable, may be sold, change their policies and/or
    may unintentionally "destroy" our "precious legacy".

    Therefore we keep this site private and independent,
    preserving our collection of family trees, i.e. NOT
    allowing edits and changes by unqualified members.
