  7. Hello Jana, I have a question. I see that you have a page which links to your family tree on I have a subscription to Ancestry and I was wondering how to make a similar link on my blog. Is there anywhere that gives instructions for doing this.
    Kind regards Debra

    1. Hi Debra, if you use Blogger, as I do, go to Layout, then go to "Pages" and click on Edit. Click on "Add external link" and add the link to your Ancestry family tree. Hope this answers your question. Thanks for stopping by! :)
