I have good news for those of you who are hoping to share your family history books with your family at Thanksgiving. To encourage people to get their orders in before the holiday rush, we’re offering free shipping on all AncestryPress books from now through October 31.
Also, in case you missed last week’s issue of the Ancestry Weekly Update, check out Juliana Smith’s blog, which presents some great tips for using Ancestry Press:
I’d like to add one more tip. Juliana mentions that if you want to add a record from Ancestry after you’ve auto-generated your book, you can upload the image as if it were a photo. You can also pull a record from your online tree directly into your book. Click Add a Page from the top navigation and then select the Record template. Choose a person from your tree, and you’ll see a list of all the records associated with that person. The record you pick will appear in your book on a new page, along with the person’s name and the source of the record.

NOTE: AncestryPress is now MyCanvas
In October 2008, AncestryPress was relaunched under the name MyCanvas. It is still a free, online software program provided by Ancestry.com. For current information about products and features, please see my more recent blog posts.
