Ask Ancestry Anne: Can I Filter My Hints?
Back to Blog

Is there a way to filter the little green leafs' Gery While there is no way to tell our hint machine what types of hints to send you, you can use the All Hints page to help you manage your hints and find the ones you are most interested in. When you are looking at your tree, choose Tree Pages and then choose All Hints: allhints01 You will find yourself on the All Hints page: allhints02 From there you can look at hints by date, surname, or basic category type. I recommend checking in on your photo hints every so often. If you would like a quick demo, check out my video Five Minute Find: Are You a Hints Power User' for more details. A hint, is just that, a hint. Our algorithms have found enough matching information in the record to suspect that it is related to your ancestor, but you are the expert on your ancestor! Always check the record and make the judgement for yourself. Do you have a question that you would like to see answered'  We can't get to all of them, but yours might be selected! Send your question to Ask Ancestry Anne, and you might be featured in an upcoming column. Happy searching!
