 Links

Do you often go to sites like Rootsweb, familysearch.org, and Google to lookup your family members?

At the top of each person's page are menus for the husband and the woman, and under each are "Links" options showing links to several popular search engines or sites with family history data, setup to pass in the names of the people of the current record.  If you multiply out all of the different resources out there, for every name in your tree, and repeat periodically to find new updates, it becomes an overwhelming task.  These links help to automate the process by taking you straight to the search results.

The links show up only if you are logged into the site.

The links to offsite websites are:

Census links
Theses automatically puts in the person's first and last names, and a birthdate range of +/- 5 years.  You can then refine the name, dates, and location to narrow the results as needed.  Note that the years listed are not filtered based on the person's birthdate -- so if they were born in 1910, it will still show all years starting with 1850.  Just use your common sense.
