Family Tree "Memories"

A Wonderful Way to Share Your Photos, Stories, Documents, & Audio

There are 5 goals to this module. This lesson plan has a lot of material attached to it and is presented as a guide to use as future questions may arise. The goal, using the Sunday class worksheet, is to help you understand the basics of uploading "memories" that you have sitting around your home, or in your thoughts. There are a lot more functions built into Family Tree and this lesson plan can point you to those.

Goal #1 - Understanding the Family Tree Memories Tab
This goal focuses on:
  • What are Record Hints
Goal #2 - Understanding the Gallery Page
The Gallery is a central place to view all the photos, documents, stories, and audio recordings of your ancestors & cousins that you have put onto Family Tree. Imagine putting a great story and photograph of your grandparent, and then sharing the LINK to this by email with your family and grandkids! Share the heritage with them. No more "genealogy books" as we have done for ages, that sit on our shelves, not seen, not read, nor shared. I bet that many of your "cousins" that you may not know as yet, also have old family photos and other media that you have not seen. How exciting it is when we see these stories and photos of ancestors that we have never before seen.
