View the Image - Rule #5 on Ancestry Anne's Top Ten Rules

Ancestry Anne writes the blog on Ancestry.com. Her latest subject: Top Ten Rules for Growing Your Family Tree.

Rule #5 is View the Image - you will likely learn some things about your ancestors.

Since I enjoy looking at old records, this is something I have been doing since I began working on my family tree.  What can I say? As a kid, I enjoyed reading the dictionary.

So I'm guessing that about half the members on Ancestry obey Rule #5.  This is a guess based on how many of the trees I checked out list "Experience Mercy Nash" versus how many list "Experience Nash".  The record available to view shows that Experience and Mercy were twins.  The synopsis of the original record merely shows the name Experience Mercy, as belonging to one person, and will automatically enter it as such if you click on the merge buttons without editing.

Read Anne's post for the other nine rules - they are all well worth minding!  I am most guilty of taking short-cuts with Rule #9, just in case you wanted to know.
