    Family Tree 2011 has no internet connection for information

    This one's interesting, I also have FTM 2011 software installed on PC, but when searching using this programme installed on the PC you do not get 'the little green leaves' - just a list of names to choose from. Only when you use Ancestry online do you get the green leaves. Good luck Sue with...

    Wrong Information

    Hi, As with all Ancestry tree's online you do have a choice of it being a public or private tree where individuals have to contact you for info. Just go into settings and change.

    How to look up shipping records

    Lynne, Use the blue boxes (underneath the ancestry Box) to search, the ancestry box is there to fool us all into using ancestry. If for instance you click on passenger lists, you will see three boxes that you can search on, this will display google links to the name you are searching on the...
