*2 Important Tips for Getting Started*

When beginning a new account, it is important for new users to know two things:

1. If you use the Gedcom import function, it is highly recommended that you import fewer than 100 people. Import or add only those individuals you are actively researching. You can always add more as you expand your research or bring in previous work.

2. When beginning your data entry, you need to know that the fields with the green add button are dropdown lists.

Always select from the dropdown list. If the desired entry is not in the list, click the green add button and a template will open to add the item. After saving, the new item will be in the dropdown. In a new log, many of the lists will be empty. Be sure to use the add button to begin building your list options.
