Good reminder that Links is on my home page. As I’ve found useful web pages ie to online source directories, newspaper articles, books or maps relating to an individual, I’ve added those Links to that person’s profile page too. Invaluable tool which doesn’t seem to be utilized by ancestry members.

How can I organize my Youtube page/subscriptions to sort Ancestry related releases by newest first so I don’t have to scroll through and pick out the newest ones I may have missed?

Very, very cool. I’m embarrassed that I remember this.
