Here are tips for using WikiTree X on Ancestry.com ...


  1. A "Show Preview" option on the merge screen would really be great! Beardsley-386 03:06, 19 November 2016 (EST)
  2. The entry ""Public Member Trees", database, Ancestry.com (http://person.ancestry.com/tree/########/person/###########/facts : accessed 18 November 2016), profile for John Doe." really should not be entered as a source, there are multiple G2G comments and also entries in the Help sections stating that public member trees are not considered reliable sources. Maybe a much better place for this is under the Acknoledgements section or the "see also" heading. this is the default entry when adding data from the Ancestry tree's profile page.Beardsley-386 03:06, 19 November 2016 (EST)
  3. The "merge" of the information seems to a "Fact:" entry under the biography section by default along with an entry in the Sources section, but above the <references/>. Maybe would be better appending under the <references/> indicator?
    ::It is easy to edit the placement on the merge screen to place the new entries where you want them, but this might speed things up a bit. Beardsley-386 20:22, 18 November 2016 (EST)
  4. Works better if used from the "View Record" screen on Ancestry, rather than the profile screen. as it then enters the source reference information rather than "Public Member Trees". Beardsley-386 02:35, 19 November 2016 (EST)
