I have a number of documents that are specific to my family. I'd like to know how to index them. How do I do this?
When you find documentation from your own records, one of our partner sites, or another website, you may want to create a source and attach it to your ancestors.
To create a source:
1. Click on Add Source in the Sources section of a Person Page or Create Source within the Source Box.
2. On the pop -out window, enter the information indicated. Web Page URL is selected by default. If a source is not online or in Memories but you have a citation, you can leave the Web Page field blank and enter information in the other fields.
3. To tag this source to specific information fields or event fields on the Person page, select the box next to that information or event.
4. To store this source for future use, select the box next to Add Source to My Source Box
5. Click Save . You must have entered the Source Title in order for the Save button at the bottom of the page to appear
Here are a couple of Knowledge Articles giving more information:
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.
I hope one of these solutions helps you add this precious information
I don't think you can. Images go through a process to become batches, which we humans are then asked to index and review.
I select batches specific to my state and, fingers crossed, hope to find my family records in it. Of all the thousands I've seen, I found two related to my family. Others have found lots more.
Hang in there! You might get lucky!
