Findmypast tree-to-tree hints

For years the strength for Findmypast has been the databases, including digitized newspapers. The company is now playing catch-up for DNA and online trees.

Here's the latest announcement.

"The next time you work on your tree, you may see a new type of hint popping up: a tree-to-tree hint. Our most helpful tree-building tool yet.
These hints are sourced from other members' trees – members with whom you share common ancestry. If they have any deceased ancestors that you haven't discovered yet, we'll alert you through this hint. If the information looks relevant, you can to add it to your tree. If not, you can dismiss it.

Tree-to-tree hinting is already helping people find parts of their ancestry they were unable to before. Best of all, it's free for a limited time, so you can see how it works. 

To start receiving these hints, just visit your tree and work on it as you usually would. This will automatically trigger the feature, and the hints will begin trickling in.
If you'd like more information on how it all works, have a look at our frequently asked questions page at https://www.findmypast.co.uk/blog/family-tree/tree-to-tree-hints/."
