Not a Question - How to use the RootsSearch for living people

After the announcement regarding privacy changes on WikiTree due to GDPR, I used the nifty app created by Jamie Nelson and listed in one of the answers on the post in order to pull up the list of living people on my watchlist so that I could check for dates of death.  (Here is the app.)

I realized that the normal RootsSearch link is not on the profile page.  After becoming agitated and researching one of the profiles the hard way, I used Googlesearch for an answer.  Lo and behold, there is another way to find the app on the profile.  Simply go to the profile's 'Family Tree & Tools' link at the top of the page and click it.  Below the family tree, there is a list of links including 'Research with RootsSearch'.  Yay!  No more frustration.  Hope this helps others!

You can bookmark the Roots page and Family Search. I keep a little genealogy bookmark folder for links I try to use with every profile.

You will typically want to alter the default Roots setting anyways especially for married women and people with uncertain details. Less is often more with these search engines.
