FTM2014 - How I handle Hints in a 5 Generation Tree

I have talked about managing Hints by searching by Record Groups. Now I have added another Hint Management system to my Genealogy Tool Box. Hints using the F.A.N. Club, or by Direct Descendants for a person. In this case, my Great-Grandfather's children.

FTM2014 - Merging of Two People

FTM2014 / FTM-3 - When Merging a record, Look at the Record

When merging a record from Ancestry.com, take a minute to actually look at the record. I would have missed so much information, if I had just done a Quick Click Web Merge. My example is within FTM2014, but the same would happen if I had done the Merge in my Online Tree

FTM2014 - Clean Up after 1910 Census Record Merge

After any Web Merge, I have clean up work to do. I have a number of blogs about this in the past, but thought I would talk about it again, but this time in a video.

FTM2014 - Why I do my Merging of Records in FTM2014 / FTM-3

There are a number or reasons why I do ALL of my merging of data, mostly from Shaky Leaf Hints, into Family Tree Maker from my PC.

  • Easier control of WHAT data is included in the Merge and how each Fact is handled
  • Easier to Add Facts from data in the record, what is not included in the merge
  • Easier to add Citations to the manually entered Facts
  • Two links directly back to the original Record on Ancestry
  • A copy of the image, when the record includes an image

FTM2014 - How I manage AMT Hints within FTM2014


Some people have seen and/or heard my Information Overload, So Many Hints, So Little Time. (just added that ending piece).

With Changes that Ancestry.com has made recently, I had to modify how I work with those hints. I thought I would share how I manage those hints now.
