You can now link unindexed images to a person in the Family Tree. Previously you had to go through the attach process for each person in the image. The new flow will greatly reduce the number of steps you must take to properly attach an image to all family members in your tree. http://bit.ly/2cpSDS5

These are great resources! I've found that these are useful for learning about what I can do too. I kept reading that my family is known for "beyond ordinary ability". Weird, but you never know until you look through death notices and obits.

An excellent starting point for Mexican research: Mexico National Census, 1930.
With 12,913,257 records with images, this census is widely recognized as one of Mexico’s best planned and executed censuses, and it is also the only one accessible to the public. Due to undercounting and some record loss, primarily for the Federal District, the 1930 census covers about 78 percent of the population.

Do you know the difference between emigration and immigration? Emigration means that someone is leaving the country while immigration means they're entering it. Your ancestors may have done both! Learn how to find out by clicking on this link: http://bit.ly/2bWGcIC

Do you know what a fletcher, a salter, a parchmenter or a costermonger did? Browse potentially forgotten jobs of the past to gain insight into the lives of your ancestors. Have you learned about an ancestor's profession? How did it change the way you feel about your family's history? http://bit.ly/2bPz4CX

I have learned about a great number of different occupations my ancestors had. They showed skills "beyond ordinary ability", quoting from a large number of obituaries throughout history. It leaves me to wonder "just who are these people?"
