What's New on Ancestry.com (Hints)

My new Morning Routine:
  • Get some Coffee
  • Go to my Ancestry.com "customized" home page
  • See what's New and Updated
  • Browse any new or updated Record collections that might be of interest
  • Check Hints in my Ancestry Member for new or updated collections


NOTE: Just making this video, I found that Burial Ground Map that I have not seen before

FTM2014 - How I merge a Shaky Leaf Hint into my file

This is a follow up to several previous Shaky Leaf Blog posts

Here is a link to a short subject video that +DearMYRTLE and I did on this topic
Shaky Leaf Hints

That video showed how I identified the Shaky Leaf Hints in my Ancestry Member Tree. This goes that next step to show how I bring that information into the file on my computer

FTM2014 - How to get Hints from Facebook

There is a way to get Hints for your Family File from Facebook.

I found it very helpful to verify some information that I already have and to help keep up with the living family. Where did they go to school? Where do they work? Who did they marry?


I have been able to expand the living family based on information from Facebook. Most of the information that I found really confirmed what I had, but more importantly am now able to keep up with the living family.

FTM2014 - Shaky Leaf Follow Up

This is a follow up to my previous two blog posts on handling of Shaky Leaf hints. I am finding that using the Ancestry Member Tree as my "Hint Manager" is working, at least for me.
