  • Newspapers FTM 2019 Help

    Hello,
    Since newspapers are the ancestors to the current day social media (ie: Facebook, etc.),
    and I have several newspaper entries from the social page of the day, I am trying to decide where in FTM2019 under their name to enter these newspaper posts?
    Any suggestions from your experience?? Thank you and Happy Turkey Day!!🦃

    Hello Ollipap

    I have moved your query to our Family Tree Software forum, I'm not familiar with FTM 2019 yet I do have it but I'm still using 2017. Can you not add it to the 'person media' within FTM?

      Darksecretz​..why did you take it upon yourself to move my post to tech? It is NOT a tech question at all. It is a query as to how others have used the same sources in their FTMs. So, please move it back!! I know exactly where and how to use Person Media and my query was searching for the level of use in the FTM2019 that would offer a variety of suggestions. Thank you for a less than stellar first venture experience into this forum.

        All queries about how to use FTM are posted the Family Tree Software part of the forum. That is where it will stay.

          As Jill has said, FTM queries will be moved to the relevant forum, it certainly reads like a tech question. Maybe YOU need to rephrase the question in a slightly more friendlier way than the way you have addressed me.

            I am on an old version of FTM so not sure if there are more options in 2019. I use Ancestry and that synchs to FTM.

            In Ancestry I add the clip to the gallery, with date and publication. If the clip offers some fact I will add the fact and then use the clip as the source/citation. I assume that FTM you can do similar.

            If it doesn't really offer a fact then it just stays in the gallery.
