Is there any way to mark a relative as being looked at- without having to check again?
Thank you for your reply Dennis. What I am wondering is if there is a way to mark a person in my relative list from RootsTech. Some people I definitely know but some people are new to me - rather than looking at them for a second, third time etc could I put a mark beside them that they have already been looked at. The memory is good but not that good when I have many relatives to check out :-) If I keep looking at the same people over and over again I won't have a hope of checking all my relatives before 31 Mar.
Simply keep a list in a word processor or excel file that you can compare as you go along and keep it on alphabetical order. Or better yet just keep a list on paper
and doing this you can keep notes on each person
One way is to use the FOLLOW option
Another thing is to send each person on your list a message and this message will show in your message history
Thank you Dennis - good suggestion :-)
In your Relatives at RootsTech list, when you look at each person, you have the ability to message the person, or +add to Contact list. Add to Contact List puts them into your FamilySearch Contact List, which doesn't go away on March 31st. Although there is some discussion about how many people you can have in your Contact List. See this comment that explains how to add them to your contact list.
You can access your contact list from your profile picture in the upper right-hand corner of the FamilySearch website.
Thank you for the info. That would be a helpful way to keep a list of those relatives that I haven't been able to find the specific connection. Your help is very much appreciated :-)
you should have been be able to see exactly how each one is related - it showed the relationship
Agreed, the relationship is shown. The problem lies when you have more than one generation that is still living. That can be difficult to determine the correct line and most people are hesitant to say the exact relationship when living people are to remain private.
