Someone has just created her profile: Atwood-3040

You may want to adopt her if she might be your ancestor.

I just wanted to bring this to your attention in case you may not have been aware of it...

The Ancestry Sharable Links can be easily shortened by reducing those links by using the following example (of the first one provided).

You simply remove all the info beginning with the first "&utm" that can be seen by the following link.

In short, the information that starts with the first "&utm" is basically harmless URL junk that only applies to the way/where the link is being shared.

It's not harmful either way, but only makes for a much shorter URL link to share.

I hope this was helpful and I was able to explain this okay via text... :-)

Thank you Lori Cook. I got the lead for this ancestor from Ancestry Thrulines. She's my 5th great grandmother.
Thanks for the tip, Brian Kerr.
You are more than welcome Joe, I couldn't find much more than what I posted.
