STOP 'Saving' Records to Your Ancestry Tree

Hmmmm this article explains a lot! Here's a short exerp

"It's easy to get started with, maintain and share (or keep private). Plus, they've made it extremely convenient to add records from Ancestry's databases. A couple of clicks and you can easily attach any number of sources, or names, to your tree (although we could tell you why that's generally a bad idea)."

The article goes on to explain that you are really NOT saving Ancestry records to people in your tree by doing this!! So I'd suggest reading the article to not find this nasty surprise one day when all those lovely records you'd 'saved' were never saved to your tree ... and they're all gone. Sheesh!

I do not have a tree on Ancestry. Not sure I ever will, but I do know there are tons of people who do ... and I have heard stories from some who have had this happen. Forewarned is forearmed.
