Stephen Jorgensen Kelsey said: I like to copy the census records into the notes on my personal program. When copying from ancestry or myheritage these come out in decent format. When copying records which are given as hints in familysearch then come out as individual items meaning noe has to go through and format them into a decent readable style rather than each individual thing listed. this is time consuming and makes me not want to access familysearch censuses except for attaching. Ancestry format ismuch better when copied for my notes. can you make the format similar to that of ancestry so it easily copies in the same way rather than a huge indivudal list of each word...

I use a local family tree management program that fully interfaces with FamilySearch FamilyTree, but I never pull over Family Tree's sources. Instead, I create my own source-centric citation.0
