Family Search Family Tree contains records from databases familiar to many genealogists, such as the Ancestral File, the International Genealogical Index , Pedigree Resource Files , LDS Church Membership records, and other record types. Celebrating My Family Tree and Me allows you to search through the records of this database.In this week’s show I take a look at the Mac application Family Tree Maker and examine how to sync with your online family trees.

I had a photograph of the Reunion taken in 1937, and also one in 1889. I was so fortunate as there was an elderly women in attendance in 1967 that was the baby in the photo in 1889 and able to tell me who others were in that photo. I was able to bring many of the lines down. Plus it was such a joy during all the college riots to meet wonderful, stable, honest and hardworking people. They existed! No hands out for government support, just work hard. I am a strong believer in reunions. Families give you strength.

This customer started with the basic Descendant poster, and then went to work. You can click and drag on any item on the poster to create your own lay-out, such as this customer did. You can duplicate the lines by clicking on them, and then click on the second to the last icon on the yellow toolbar. Also, on the toolbar above the poster, you can click on Show Grid to help you line things up as you create your own design. I also duplicate one of the existing text boxes when I want to add text. When you do this, rather that open a new Text box, the fonts will automatically match the other fonts on the poster.

I want one that looks like that but when I try to make one on ancestry.com there isn’t a template like the example. I also didn’t see anywhere to customize one to our own needs. Thanks!
