attaching obits ot LDQ4-1QY and to LDQC-N4D but when I went to their respective pages and checked the sources, the obits from GenealogyBank were not shown. Please advise. Thanks!
Danni, after reading your post, I tried to attach a newspaper article from genealogybank to one of my ancestors too. When I checked his sources, the newspaper article was not there either. However, I found the newspaper article in my source box and I was able to attach it to him from there. Hope that helps.
@Danni S Byers, you haven't told us how you tried to attach the obits from GenealogyBank, so it's hard to comment on why it didn't work.
FamilySearch does hold a collection, United States, GenealogyBank Obituaries, 1980-2014, that may have the information you are trying to attach. You might want to check that collection; if your family members are found there, you can easily attach their obituary.
This collection is created in partnership with www.GenealogyBank.com. Records are being added to this collection periodically.
I followed the instructions in this article.
DebArm2, thank you for your help! I didn't know I had a Source Box. As you said, the newspaper article was in my source box. I was able to create a source and attach it to the person. Now a link to the newspaper obit is on the person's page in their sources. Clicking on the source link took me back to the obit on the GenealogyBank website. I really appreciate you taking the time to find the solution to my "problem". 👍️ 😀

Thanks for bringing this up. The blog you posted & the instructions on the site itself makes it seem like the clipping will be added directly to the person's source section. Adding it to My SourceBox is a little disppointing.
