Help ThruLines by Adding Children and Grandchildren

A Segment-ology TIDBIT

Many of us complain about the small Trees of our Matches. Well, with a little help from you, ThruLines can still find Common Ancestor(s).

Your important task:

Add the children of your Ancestors to your Tree. Actually, add the grandchildren of your Ancestors, too! ThruLines will connect the dots – it will match an Ancestor in the small tree of your Match to a grandchild in your Tree and show you the Common Ancestor you both have. ThruLines will draw the picture from you to the Common Ancestor and from your Match to his/her known ancestor, who matches a grandchild in your tree and then extend the Match’s ancestry back to the Common Ancestor, too.

I’ve actually watched this work. I was working in ThruLines for one of my Ancestors with a group of Matches, and I entered the children and grandchild of the Ancestor into my Tree (which I had originally set up just with Ancestors). The green “EVALUATE” tag disappeared for Match Ancestors I had entered, and often Private Ancestors turned into named Ancestors. In some cases, almost immediately, new ThruLine Matches appeared – in other cases new Matches showed up in a day or two.

Help ThruLines do the work by adding descendants of your Ancestors to your Tree!
