It might be a help to those trying to research maternal lines to include mtDNA along with the Y-DNA.
England, Bedfordshire, Kempston9-8-2018 by dianna carter9-8-2018 by Ray Gurganus2
While adding the county in England, many of my relatives come from Bedfordshire county, however all I can find, and what I have added is Bedford, which is the county town.  Should I continue to use Bedford, or would it be possible to have the county Bedfordshire added ?
Editing sources12-10-2017 by Virginia Sholin Smallwood8-20-2018 by Ray Gurganus6
I like the "edit" feature for sources - when it is available.  I'd like to see edits made possible for census records, as well.
Ages at Marriage12-9-2017 by Allan Joyce12-12-2017 by Allan Joyce3
I have always liked the fact that you supply us with an age at death, is there a way that could be done for marriages?  I am constantly amazed at how many women lied about their age on marriage records.  (and some men).

Thanks Ray

Ancestor and Pedigree datasets in tabular form8-23-2017 by robweis12-9-2017 by Ray Gurganus8
Ancestor and Pedigree datasets in tabular form

It could be implemented from those pages by push button, like the map.

Thanks again for all this.
cheklist for legal documents10-25-2017 by JOSEPH B ROSE10-25-2017 by JOSEPH B ROSE1
I am working on my family link to the mayflower. Birth, marriage, and death certificates are hard to obtain before 1910 or earlier.

The idea of of the checklist that can be copied or transferred is great. Also when siblings are born about the same time it may show city county and state. Always a great clue
Document checklist10-17-2017 by Ray Gurganus10-19-2017 by Virginia Sholin Smallwood4
I saw someone post this in a Facebook group and thought I'd offer it here to see if anyone is interested. The idea is to have a way to track a list of documents (birth certificates, death certs, censuses, military records, wills, etc) that you want to track down for your people, and to have a way to cross-check your work. So there would be a way for you to define the list of documents you want to track, and then a way to check off when they are acquired... and a way to indicate that you've exhausted all options, and decided it doesn't exist... and a way to search/filter on who's left with documents not yet found.

I would think that checking the options would be a manual process (?), not linked into actual attachments or links, as some may be offline paper files you have, or something online that you may not want to or be able to link to.

Something like this.  Suggestions & comments welcome!

Change suggestions to moderator - Walls

I have a case, in someone else's records, where I believe a parental link is wrong. (p295626)

The suggestion box doesn't let me in there.
GEDCOM Exports6-3-2016 by Adrianna Roberts7-2-2017 by Tom Burks5
This way we can find more records and transfer them to ancestry.com. I started an ancestry family tree but can't transfer them back and forth very easily.. It would be very helpful to be able to transfer the people into ancestry. Not sure if this is already possible, but it would be a very helpful functionality to have.
Legal Adoption5-11-2017 by Armour Cribbs5-11-2017 by Ray Gurganus2
Among our branch's family members are those that are legally adopted. They are treated as any natural born family member.  Then enters those that have identified their "natural parents", posing the problem of showing multiple parents.  What is the proper way to record these ancestoral ties?
