Havin’ My Baby….Neanderthal

Just Say No To Neanderthal Cloning

I suppose it was bound to happen. A geneticist wants to implant an embryo with Neanderthal genes. Kind of goes without saying, but no one learned anything from Jurassic Park and the velociraptors? I know I refer to this all the time, but I love the lines where Jeff Goldblum‘s character Dr. Malcolm and John Hammond are discussing cloning:

John Hammond: I don’t think you’re giving us our due credit. Our scientists have done things which nobody’s ever done before…
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should.

How To Share Your Family Trees Listed On Ancestry

share_your_tree_menu

Last weekend we were at my brother’s place for a pot luck, and as invariably happens a conversation turned to genealogy research. It warmed my heart to hear a young woman from another generation telling us about what she had been researching and who she was looking for. Now and then, when I can, I try to help  people with their family research, at least a little to get them started or fill in some blanks for them.

From our conversation I found out that this family member had a tree on Ancestry and so I asked her to send me an invitation to view her tree. Unfortunately, she wasn’t sure how to do that! So, I am writing this article and including Ancestry’s fine advice to help out everyone who might be wondering how to share your trees too. Here is what Ancestry advises….

First of all, a subscription to Ancestry is not required for Family Tree sharing.

A new and easier way to share your tree

With our release last week, we’ve made it easier to invite people to your tree. You can now import your contact list from Yahoo!, Hotmail, Gmail, and AOL accounts to quickly select people you want to send an invitation to. You can still type in individual email addresses if you’d like, but by importing your contact list you can save a little time and effort trying to remember your cousin’s email address.

How to invite friends and family to see your tree

From your tree, click on the “Share your tree” link in the “Tree pages” menu next to your tree name.
