Help need working through FTM on Ancestry.com.
I follow leaves with hints, in this case other member tree that I already have collected most of data on. But, I discover a Town Directory for 1961 that includes half dozen people in my tree. I want to only include the Town Directory in my tree and do not want to pull in the whole tree.
In FTM right panel is a lot of data for merging, from the original member tree, some I can edit or delete, most that does not have such option. I wish I could edit or delete any of those lines! But can't. Also, the citation when I get to merge will show the tree, and not the Town Directory.
Problem: How can I simply focus only on the Town Record, or some other specific record, and continue to merging that data into my FTM file. I do not want to back out of the tree and research the data. It takes a long time and often I can't locate some of those people on the Town Directory. I know some workarounds such as search for a person and steer search to Town Directory. But, some people in the directory won't come up on a search for some reason. And it is incredibly laborious and time consuming.
