Did you know that you can choose the order in which you want the names in your tree to be displayed?
Many of you have contacted us about how to display names in a different order in the family tree, whether to make appear the surname first and your given name second to name an option.
This feature is critical to the Chinese language for example, in which the order of the names cannot be changed because they would mean something different otherwise.
This function has always been there on MyHeritage, so let's discover it together:
Step 1: Go to your family tree. On the right hand side of the page you will find four symbols: an arrow, a printer, a spanner and a question mark.
Step 2: Click on the scanner, the Preferences menu will pop up. You will find the Display names option at the bottom.
Step 3: Use the drop down bar to select how you want your name to be displayed and then click OK.
All done. Now your family tree will look like you wanted it too!
