YourFolks.com computer system allows you to add ancestors automatically to your family tree. First, make sure you are logged in to your account on YourFolks.com. You should see your name at the top of the page. If you experience difficulties to login, refer to the video entitled “Login”. In your tree, you will find a magic wand in a red square under each person that is without ancestors. Click the wand to find ancestors. The system will offer you to add automatically ancestors to your family tree. In the example, 92 ancestors have been found for you without any refined research. It will cost you 1 voucher per ancestor added. To see how to purchase vouchers, please refer to the videos entitled “Premium Services with your credit card” or “Premium Services paid by mail”. Click on “Add 92 ancestors to my tree”. Note that you can see how many ancestors does a person have by taking a look at the small green rectangle at the top right corner. The system can also offer you to add automatically ancestors by clicking on the big yellow rectangle at the left top corner of the page. Sometimes, ancestors are found for only one spouse. In this case, click on the magic wand under the person without ancestors. The system indicates that a difference has been detected in the process. You need to decide if this difference is minor or major. In the example, the difference is minor and it is the same person. Click on “Add 6 ancestors to my tree”. If the difference was greater, you could have asked for an expert to help you. Note that you can click on this icon to see the next 3 generations of your tree, for instance the ancestors of Guillaume Robitaille. If the system cannot find the marriage you are looking for, as it is the case for Noel Chartrin, it will give you a chronological list of the marriages that match the most your search criteria. Scroll through the list. If you find a marriage that seems appropriated, for instance if the difference in names or surnames is minor, click on the year, the municipality, the name of the husband or the wife. The ancestors will be automatically added to your tree.
