New Record Merge Feature, and New Search Announcement

Ancestry____logo1.bmpNew Record Merge Feature
Was just browsing the blogosphere and noticed that Ancestry has posted a new merge feature for the member trees.

Remember how you could only save a census image to one family member at a time? Now, when you go into your family tree and see a hint for a record that includes other family members–like census records–you can opt to attach that record to all of the family, rather than adding it one at a time to each individual.  You can read Kenny Freestone’s post with more information about this feature on the Ancestry blog.

New Search Announcement
Also, a few weeks ago we let you know that the new Ancestry Search is available to everyone. There’s more info on that today on the Ancestry blog in a post by Kendall Hulet.

Kendall’s post has screen shots and detailed instructions on how to take the new search for a spin. So if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, click here to learn more.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hey Juliana,

    Caught the new family merge feature late yesterday and have been loving it! You have to be a little careful with names that change, say, from census record to census record, but it’s a real time saver!

    Take care,

  2. Ancestry is doing a really great job of implementing all these new techniques. I am looking forword to the time when each result screen can be filtered without having to go in circles. Also a sorting of people in a tree by birth date or state.Oh and one more idea, print out in larger font when using printer friendly.

    Keep up the good work.

  3. I like the new merge feature for the census. But, sometimes it says See other relatives and sometimes it only does one name at a time
