What is my source box?

Your source box lets you reuse sources instead of retyping them each time you need to use them. To view your source box, click your name in the upper right corner, and from the drop-down menu, click Source Box.

Features of source box include:

  • Storage of more than 10,000 sources.
  • The ability to organize your sources in up to 200 folders.
  • Adding sources of your own into Family Tree.
  • Gathering historical records and attaching them to records of ancestors.
  • Print sources directly from the View page of individual sources.
