About research notes and private notes in FTM2014

Videos how to use Notes ==> for every person Crista Cowen recommends to create a story in time order of the person with question marks etc see video below.

Notes in Family Tree versus Ancestry
In Family Tree Maker you can create a variety of notes: person, research, fact, relationship, media, and source citation. When you upload a tree to Ancestry only person notes will be included; they can only be viewed by people you have invited to your online tree. All Notes are since FTM2014 synced with the Ancestry.com Tree and synced back if you loose your tree
