FamilySearch's Family Tree is changing the way we do online family history, if we will play our part. Unlike other genealogy websites, if you find a birth, marriage, death, census, or military record on FamilySearch, you are presented with a box that says, "Reason to Attach Source."
Will you fill in the box!?! Please?
That box should not be skipped for sake of speed! Trust me. I know how time consuming it is to write a reason why you think the record on the left matches the person(s) on the right. It slows down the fun. It's a drag. You just want to get to the action of finding more records. I get it. I get it! However, a few moments of time can save hours of headaches later, for yourself and others.
Will you please fill in the box?
