AncestryAcademy on Family Tree Maker
Ancestry.com has introduced a new online product, AncestryAcademy. In that offering is a series of Videos on Family Tree Maker. Duff Wilson, the presenter, has been involved with Family Tree Maker for over 10 years. He does a far better job than I, so it's ...

My Blog talks about what Duff Wilson talked about. In some cases, I do the same task but differently. End Result is the same.

For example, he talked about working mostly from the Tree View. I do most of my work from the Person View.

Glad you liked the video.

Questions about G+ HOA  - 
 
Looking for a solution: We have had three HOAs, where one or two people, on the Panel (in the Filmstrip) could NOT hear another panelist. Totally Weird. The solution was to REFRESH the browser.

Also, twice, my lower 3rd would not show up, even when it was turned on. The Beta Comment Tracker comments wouldn't show up either. Again, REFRESH resolved this.

Any clues ? or is anyone else having these issues? Browser, not platform (Mac / PC) didn't matter. One person in our community suggested an update to Chrome, but we had other browsers with the sound issue.

Thank you,

Russ
