About this webinar

Find out why Ol' Myrt gave up the notion to avoid sharing her family tree online. Secret: It's all about collaboration. This webinar guides participants through the process of creating a GEDCOM file in the Legacy Family Tree software, uploading the file to, and looking for "reasonable" matches using Ancestry's shaking leaf. We then focus on deeper searches using using the "magnifying glass" and analysis of reliability of matches.

Topics include:
  • GEDCOM – Privacy issues with living individuals
  • Ancestry Member Trees privacy options
  • Changing views
  • Editing profiles
  •'s shaky leaf
  • Accepting an suggestion
  • Reviewing another Ancestry Member Tree
  • Communicating with other researchers
