This is an update to yesterday’s post about Ancestry.com’s soon-to-be-released Member Connect feature.
Ancestry.com has posted a Member Connect preview page. I also have some screen shots of what the service will look like. These are mock-ups, so they may be a little different from what you see when Member Connect launches in a month or two.
The new record viewer (below) has a panel showing who’s edited and saved the record you’re looking at. You also can use the panel to comment on the record.
When Ancestry.com thinks a person in someone else’s tree matches someone in your tree, you can view a page like this one, showing information on the potential match from the other tree. New and conflicting information is highlighted; you can choose to ignore it, use it to replace your own information, or add it as alternate information.
This is the Member Connect recent activity panel that will appear on your Ancestry.com home page. It shows your connections’ recent family tree updates and saved hints relating to common ancestors.
