Subject: Re: [FTM-TECH] Adding Sources

When adding NEW references, such as Census, to a current person in
your file for newer versions of FTM, you have to double click on the person,
click on the PLUS sign, then double click on the item you want to update.
If you write over the reference as you were able to do in older versions,
you REPLACE rather than ADD TO. To delete a reference click on the red X.

Sue, you've asked a very important question. Genealogy without
documentation is fiction!

In FTM 2011 go to Help and find "Companion Guide." In the Table of
Contents you'll find the section on Sources. There's a lot of other useful
information in this book too.

I highly recommend the "Companion Guide" to anyone who wants to get the
most out of FTM 2011.
