Ancestry Family tree question

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Mandy Report 5 Aug 2006 14:04

Hi guys, When using the family tree Maker on Ancestry (which is really quick and simple by the way!) you can add sources such as BMD, census etc. However, some of the records can't be attached to the people in the same way as say the more modern documents. The older ones can only be saved to your PC or to the showbox. Please does anyone know how to get round this and to just attach them to the relevant person in your tree? Many thanks Mandy
