Getting the Most Out of Your Ancestry.com Account Program Recap

Thank you to Lew Meixler from the Mercer County Jewish Genealogy Society at Beth El Synagogue, East Windsor, NJ for his presentation on different features and tools available through an Ancestry.com subscription.  Creating a family tree is one of the most popular features associated with an Ancestry.com subscription.  You can easily add or change relationships between people in your tree, include unrelated persons in your tree to investigate later, and you can merge two persons if you find out that they are actually the same person while keeping all of the information and records associated with each one.  Additionally, you can easily transfer your family tree to other sites such as Family Search, search purchased add-ons like Newspapers.com or Fold-3 directly from your tree, and receive “hints” in the form of green leafs for records that may be related to individuals in your tree.  You can find a copy of Lew’s presentation at the link below.
