As more families share photos with Family Tree, you will see more photos of your ancestors. You can now create a PDF to save or print a portrait pedigree. The pedigree displays the preferred portraits for 5 generations of ancestors. (A preferred portrait is the small photo that appears by your ancestor’s name on Family Tree. The 5 generations are the person you select and the person’s spouse, their children, and 3 generations of the person’s ancestors) . . .
We live in a mobile world. You should be able to connect with your ancestors wherever you are. FamilySearch has released two new mobile apps that will make it easy to do just that. With FamilySearch Tree and FamilySearch Memories you can add memories and sources of your relatives on the go. Everything you add will sync with FamilySearch.org, so information will be accessible from any device and will be preserved for future generations. Both apps are free. Read more about the three apps and down load any of the three. . .
David Harrison—a man—had problems finding the grave of David O’Cull, his grandmother.
“Our grandmother, born Virginia David O’Cull, must have had a unique childhood,” wrote David Harrison. “As discovered on census records and her first marriage certificate, she regularly went by her middle name, David.”
Compounding the confusion, Virginia David was known by six different surnames during her life. Due to death and divorce, she had had five different husbands.

Doing research in Ireland may have its challenges, but it’s hardly impossible, especially if you have some help from someone who knows the ropes. . .
Genealogists may not be any smarter than the average computer user, but they have a lot more to lose. What would you do if your computer crashed right this instant?
With the proliferation of electronic devices that connect to the Internet, it becomes harder and harder to protect yourself and your computer from the possibility of dangerous or malicious programs destroying data or stealing personal private information. The problem is real, it is not an imaginary conspiracy theory made up by someone to sell you something. Businesses can receive hundreds or even thousands of malicious emails and other potential infections every day. Individuals, depending on the type of connection they have to the Internet, may see relatively few invasive attempts or as many as a business.
