In an earlier blog post, you can read an article about sharing a research log on FamilySearch Family Tree. This month we are announcing new features that are compatible with the data in Family Tree. We are very excited to help all researchers share their research, while eliminating all of the duplicate data entry normally required to share records online.
The first step is to record the FamilySearch ID number for each person in your list of Individuals. This process is simplified with the new Lookup feature. When adding a new person or editing an existing person’s entry, click on “Lookup.”
Locate the correct entry in the list returned from FamilySearch Family Tree, and click “Select.”
The ID number will be imported into ResearchTies. Save the form. With the ID number recorded, the “Share Source” feature will now be able to attach sources to the correct person in Family Tree.
