Comments on: Introduces Sticky Notes The official blog of Ancestry Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:35:31 +0000 hourly 1 By: BEE Tue, 06 Dec 2011 20:37:15 +0000 Under recent additions – New Collections:
U.S. WWII Draft Cards Young Men, 1898-1929
Does this make sense, or am I missing something?

By: BEE Tue, 06 Dec 2011 17:12:20 +0000 Still waiting for the “return to” – person” feature, but I’m happy to say that I found the Beta Image Viewer again.
I don’t know if it reverts back to “standard” when I shut down, delete history, cookies, etc. but when I went to a document and clicked on “options” {as the directions stated in the blog} I found it was on “standard” – a simple click brought back the “Advanced Beta Image Viewer”.
Also, quite a few blogs ago, we discussed the many “hints” that popped up, and someone wrote that they just delete them rather than bother with the “family trees”, but I found that even though it said just one “hint”, when I clicked on that person, it had a greater number of “hints”, including actual documents like WWI Draft card, census, etc. so tedious as it is, I guess I’ll have to go through the 200+ names on one of my trees to see these documents.

By: BEE Tue, 29 Nov 2011 12:56:50 +0000 #14, I am so glad to hear that! The email response I got from ancestry made it sound like it was “my” problem – “We are sorry for the difficulty. What version of Fire Fox are you using? There may be some settings with your browser that need to be adjusted or optimized for the web site in order to resolve these problems.”
Nothing I did helped, but it makes me wonder what “settings” have to do with the “return to” – person” going AWOL when searching for documents – it’s there in the “Compare With Your Tree”.
Also when viewing a document instead of “return to record”, it sometimes just says “return”, so again, it’s necessary to use the back arrow.
Perhaps it’s because I’m stubbornly using “old search” or are others having the same problem with “new search”?

I’ve been having the same problem and at least one other person is also.

By: BEE Mon, 28 Nov 2011 15:14:00 +0000 Robert, Trudy, I guess I’m in good company!
I sometimes feel like an old dinosaur with all the latest “gadgets” that take a computer wiz to figure out, not to mention Facebook and “tweets”!
I spend so much time on ancestry, I wonder where people find time to check out these other things!

I understand how you feel. I was always told there is no such thing as a dumb question. In todays high tech world, there are times, I don’t even know how to ask a the question! Trudy, a fellow senior citizen.

One of the easiest ways is to go to the Sticky Note Blog:

And then bookmark it in your browser.

You could also add it to the Quick Links on your home page.

By: Robert OLeary Mon, 28 Nov 2011 05:42:52 +0000 I am going to stick my naive neck out here and ask what most will think is a dumb question. Step-by-step, how do you find the Sticky Notes blog? Like many other senior citizens, Facebook, Twitter and other social media are a complete mystery to me. Sticky Notes sounds like it would be interesting, but I have no idea how you find it, or the other blogs ancestry has. I only found out about Sticky Notes because of the e-mail ancestry sent to us all. Thanks for your help.

I’m having a problem with “return to” – person.
Followed all the suggestions given in email from ancestry, but they seem to be a step behind with Firefox – they are up to “7”, but the newest version is “8”.
