Research Notes 2019-4-1

Why waste your money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.

Mark Twain

That seemed like an appropriate quote for April Fool’s Day . . . users . . . Are you aware there is a huge collection of video lessons available on YouTube? Topics range from Tidying Up Your Genealogy to Using the new MyTreeTags feature. You can watch these videos on your desktop or your mobile devices and they are all free. You don’t need to create an account, just start watching. Got to and search for Ancestry Desktop Education Series.
