New Option on the Social Security Death Index Record from Ancestry

Ancestry has added a new feature, at least on the Social Security Death Index transcription that we see online.


For example:


This is not an image, this is a transcription from Ancestry from a record that they have and that we can NOT see. The End Users should NOT be able to Add alternate information to what we see.

I, for one, have reported an issue stating that we should NOT be able to add information. Yes, we may have additional information, but not to this type of a record, or INDEX.

It's a great feature when we are looking at an Image AND our view of an item on the Image is different from that which is transcribed, but not to an Index.

If you agree, please report issues on these types of records to Ancestry.

Which Hint Do You Merge

With the change in the Hinting system between Ancestry and Family Tree Maker, a little more care needs to be taken, when selecting a Hint that has a media file. I'll share my experience with this.
