  1. 1. Quick Attach Summary Adding Ancestors and Sources from Record Search to FT Foreword 1. The Quick Attach feature works with attaching all Source information to Family Tree (FT) and adding family members from US Census Records from 1850 to 1940. 2. US Census records of 1850, 1860 and 1870 do not identify family member relationships such as husband, wife and children. For this reason, wife and children must be manually selected from the census and entered into family tree as shown in this tutorial. 3. US Census records 1880 thru 1940 identify family member relationships which allows the Quick Attach feature to add the wife and children to the father for new family members not currently in Family Tree (using +Add), as well as adding their source information (Attach) more conveniently as shown in this tutorial. 4. Marriage, Birth and Death Records will only allow attaching a Source, I could find no way to attach these vital records to Family Tree using the Quick Attach feature. 5. The feature of adding ancestors and sources from Record Search to FT appears to not function for persons in our FT that were added using the feature “Add Unconnected Person” 6. A free internet program located at https://puzzilla.org/ can assist in these matters . Review the 2 excellent videos given at the above web site. The only browsers I could find to work with this web site were Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox 7. After exhausting your search for ancestors, you might try locating a descendant male or female of marriageable age in your own genealogy (with or without a spouse and no children). Puzzilla.org might help you find such information, to complete these exercises. Begin with your pedigree line first and after exhausting all efforts to locate ancestors along your pedigree line, your can start researching your descendancy lines. 4/28/2014 1
