Using Trees

I sure hope that everyone is using family trees.  I know that some people are not fans of, but I have had such good luck with contacts made there.  I am a huge fan of the ancestry hints that are given.  I have located so many missing census records through their "hints".

If you haven't tried it yet, when you are on the home page of look about half way down the page to where it says "About this tree", then "View People with Hints".  It lists all the people in your database that they have located records for.  It is incredibly helpful!

Good luck!

  1. I also like to connect to the trees that are linked to the documents I find; it means they go to the trouble to link to these documents as sources, so they usually have some decent information. A lot of sifting has to be done, but if you find a picture, additional document, or a missing part of the family tree, it's all worth it.
