How does one upload supporting documents?
E.g., I was just prompted by Family Search to enter a place of death for my grandmother. I checked on my family tree on Ancestry and not only found the place, I found 3 sources supporting that information. I could enter that much information to describe how I know that detail, but how much better to upload the actual documents!
How to do that is the question.

IF, you have access to the copies (ie. "Digital" Images of the) "Documents"; THEN, that is easy, you can "Add" those "Documents" (ie. the "Digital" Images) to the "Memories" ('Tab' or section) of your Grandmother; and, you can also make those "Memories" part of the "Sources" ('Tab' or section) of your Grandmother.
And, 'Yes', you can ALSO add the "Details" (ie. "Text") in those "Documents" in the "Reason This Information Is Correct:" under the "Death" field.
Here are some "Knowledge articles" in 'FamilySearch'
How do I upload memories to FamilySearch?
What are reason statements in Family Tree?
I hope this helps.
How do I add documents to memories that are larger than the size limit? The docs are PDFs and I don't have the programs to covert those to JPEG or other formats. So the docs are large. Thank you.0

Sometimes you find sources that are not available on FamilySearch. You find them on another website, or you have a paper or digital copy. You can type the information to add these sources to Family Tree.
When you type in the source, you can either link it to the online copy or attach a digital copy.
Attaching the URL allows others to find the source online0
