Ancestry Updates: New Comments Activity and Icon Feature!
Ancestry has just made it a whole lot easier to collaborate! As mentioned in Ancestry’s New Tree Edit History Feature and Tool Icons and Ancestry Updates: BETA Family Tree Views and Toolbox Icons, Ancestry has been testing their family tree views and toolbox icons, along with the placement of icons, as part of their new updates for this year. You can learn more about some of their new and upcoming features and tools in Ancestry 2023 Updates: New Genealogy and DNA Tools and Features. They are trying to make it as easy as possible to find everything you need and to be able to collaborate! As of 2 days ago, on May 12th, they released their new comments activity icon that you can now find (or choose to show) in your family tree views! This makes collaborating with others so much easier! Guests, whether for a public or private family tree, and Contributors and editors to a private tree, can now make or see a comment on someone in a tree quickly, while in family tree view! You can also share important comments for public view as well.
