How do I attach sources from MyHeritage to Family Tree?

To attach MyHeritage sources to Family Tree, access MyHeritage from the link on the Person page. If you start the search from My Heritage rather than from FamilySearch.org, you cannot attach the sources to a person in Family Tree.

  2. In the Search Records box on the right, click MyHeritage.

  5. Click your ancestor's name in the MyHeritage search results.
  6. Review the information.
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the record page and, in the lower left portion of the screen, click Attach source to FamilySearch
  8. The source entry for FamilySearch.org appears with all fields auto-populated, except the reason statement.
  9. Add your reason for adding the source to the person. 
  10. In "Select the Information or Events in this Source," click the box to the left of each item in the source.
  11. If you do not want the source added to your Source Box, click to uncheck the box.
