    I can find absolutely nothing on this new Search. Pleeeze give us back the old search??????

    What do you do with records you have sent for, spent the money to receive? Do you digitize and throw away or keep in a file?

    Also, I have found I can use the page for an individual on ancestry as a time line, I can print it out and add in what I know using add a fact. I can see the holes where I need to do more research. I can also tell which documents I have in the description part. But this gives me lots of paper to store in family notebooks, but the information is partly digitized.

    Listened to Spring Cleaning w/ Crista this morning. Deleted old, dead trees tonight – no problem! I’m thrilled… I had renamed my online tree so many times when I got FTM and had syncing problems. Now I have just my one tree instead of duplicates! Tomorrow night I will work on cleaning my files. Thanks so much!

    I’m a little confused by this. I’m actually keeping two trees, one for each side of my family. maternal and paternal. It helps me because I have a half-sister who I share with and she’s not interested in my mother’s side.

    Thanks for the info. I wish I’d known some of this when I started…
