Cindy K,

Not sure that I have done that, I'll have to check that out. I have used both Smart Stories and the Family Book Creator, but not together.

I'll see what I can find.

The only person you should trust to give you access to data of interest is YOURSELF. 

So, as Dick says make your own copy, and also record all of the context of the record - what collection it belongs to, how the information was processed etc.  If the record reappears elsewhere, these things may change.

·         Findmypast, a global leader in family history, announces the availability of a library edition within the United States

·         Provides access for libraries, archives, and other organizations to billions of records from England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States

·         Free, no obligation, 90-day trial available

 
Salt Lake City – June 25, 2015

Findmypast, a global leader in family history, announced today the official release of their product for libraries and organizations in the United States. The Findmypast Library Edition gives library access to billions of records from Findmypast’s wide array of collections from the United States, Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, and other areas of the world. Collection highlights include:
·         Largest online collection of parish records from the United Kingdom

·         Exclusive access to the new PERiodical Source Index (now with images)

·         Most comprehensive Irish family history records in the world

 

Amongst the billions of records now available to library patrons is the new PERiodical Source Index (PERSI). PERSI, a popular tool used by genealogists, includes more than 2.5 million indexed entries from thousands of genealogical and local history publications. For the first time, images of articles have been included in the collection – with more being added on a regular basis.
 
“We are delighted to bring the best resource for British and Irish family history to America’s library market,” said Annelies van den Belt, CEO of Findmypast.
 
The Library Edition provides tools for patrons to work in tandem with a library’s subscription and at home. Individual user accounts allow patrons to build their own family tree, save records from the library’s subscription, and continue working on their family tree.  Library patrons will also have access to Findmypast’s Hints, which aids in the discovery of records from their own family tree.
 
Librarians can contact librarysales@findmypast.com for further information, pricing, and to start a free 90-day free trial of the product.

David,

The first thing that I do is turn OFF the Ancestry Tree hints. I then research by specific Record Groups. Say I want to see how many of those Record Hints are Census Records.

I have 10,000 hints and I work on specific records. A month or so ago, I looked at all of the Military Records and found and recorded 250 of then. The more I did them, the better and quicker O wort he'd thru them.

Just a thought.

Russ
Once in a while I like to look over my online tree's to see if that might provide me with some clues. Today I went and looked at my Ancestry.com Tree. I have the basic account over at Ancestry.com, because I have free access to the AncestryLibrary through work (have to save money where I can).

Office Hours - 06/04/15 - Who are these people on this record ?
Looking at a US Federal Census Record, there are some people who I don't know living in this household. How will I handle this. _____________________________________________________________ Copyright © 2015 by H R Worthington
