Do you recall the first time you saw information about an ancestor on a census record, military draft card or an immigration record? We’ve just made it easier than ever to share that thrill of discovery with family and friends through Facebook, Twitter and Email.
You can share daily finds from the record page by clicking on the “Share this record” link in the Page Tools section. Then select Facebook, Twitter or Email from the drop-down menu, login if needed, enter a personalized message and submit.
Here is a Facebook post that I made for a WWI draft record of my grandpa which shows his age, occupation, gives a physical description and even has his signature.
Your family and friends will be able to click on the link they receive to view the record on Ancestry.com.
Give it a try and please let me know what you think. We look forward to your feedback to help us know how to best extend sharing to other areas of the Ancestry site and to other types of media such as photos and stories.
Here you will find informational, and sometimes fun, posts from the folks behind the scenes here at Ancestry.com. We hope you’ll notice just how passionate we are about family history and about the products we’re building to help connect families over distance and time.Visit Ancestry.com
