When viewing a record on Ancestry, click on Save and select Save to My Shoebox.
I know of only two ways to access My Shoebox. Shoebox access can be included on your configurable home page. Once logged in, scroll down until you see the section labeled “My Shoebox.” (If it isn’t there, you may need to reconfigure your home page.) It shows the three most recent records and includes a link to “See all shoebox items.”
Shoebox access is also available when viewing a record. Click on the link provided.
Shoebox contents come in two, separately stored varieties:
1. Saved Records
2. Downloaded and Printed Records.
Downloaded and printed records are stored automatically.
When viewing a record on FamilySearch, click on My Source Box and then on Add to My Source Box. (Login if you haven’t already.)
My Source Box access is available when viewing a record. Click on My Source Box and then on Go to My Source Box.
Bookmarks—“sources,” in FamilySearch parlance—can be organized into folders. New sources can be created that bookmark any page on the Internet.
while the titles of the sources look like web links, they are not. Clicking opens up information about the source: name, URL, citation, and note. Click on the URL to link to the web page.
Next time I’ll compare linking a record to someone in your tree. Stay tuned…
