I have been researching my great grandfathers family for over 4 years and have gotten through the family. EXPECT for my great grandfather, Wilhelm Guenther. I can not find where he came from. the information I have is that he was born 1840, baden, west Prussia. I found him on a ship manifest leaving the port of Bremen arriving the port of new York, 3-24-1873 on the ship Henry. (Wilhelm Gunther). I cannot find where he was born or married.

My wish is that ALL Folks COULD JUST post the HINTS Documents and attached to the People so we can be sure we have the RIGHT PERSON to Work on. I am so tired of having to post all the DOCUMENTS under HINTS before I can feel secure I have the proper data to proceed. I have spent just the last 3 night completing Hints where others have not done it and have gotten Nothing done. I want to help progress the Folks but still people are making assumptions on a name only without looking for the INDEXED documents for proof.

Thanks so much! My ancestors on both sides all seem to come from Germany and I've run into roadblocks once I get a generation or two into those that remained in Germany. I hope this will open new avenues of exploration. I have been taking German lessons online in the hope of needing it to understand some documents in the future.

True, "Salvation is done one person at a time", but by thousands of people at the same time. Allowing us to move our Ancestory family (mine is over 50,000) into the FamilyTree would potentially help others find their ancestors and cousins more easily and allow many people to provide Salvation for our common cousins "one at a time." Perhaps the great feature of the FamilyTree is that it allows thousands of unknown living cousins to "work together" on identifying and providing memories & salvation for our shared ancestors, even though we do not know each other, and we probably will never meet each other, except through the Messaging system--another incredible feature of the FamilyTree.

Suggestion:- Change "Austria" to "Australia" in the Country column above.

Incidentally, the "Sign in" button at the top of this Blog page does not work. Selecting the button just temporarily creates a tab saying "Re-direct to sign in page", which disappears after a couple of seconds, without opening the sign in page.

when are you going to make it possible to import a complete family from ancestry into family search trees. I have thousands of names in ancestry and need to bring them in so the ordinance can be done. You want to speedup this work this is one big way to go from one name at a time to a complete family including siblings for the father and mother.??

Well,brother,the work of Salvation is done one person at a time. Perhaps you can transfer one family @ a time and save them i like manner.
