First, locate the hints in one of three places. On your dashboard when you first log in; within the orange ‘Hints for this tree’ button at the top of your tree view; or within the little orange circles next to your relatives. Click any of these and a full list of hints should open up.
On each hint, you’ll see a brief description of the record set we sourced it from, and a preview of some of the information it contains. If it looks like it could be relevant, click ‘Review’ to see the information in full.
Accepting or rejecting hints
Once you’ve clicked ‘Review’, you’ll see a comparison of the person in the record next to the person you’ve added on your tree. If they appear to be the same person and the new details look useful, click ‘Yes, next step’ to copy the information onto your tree.
If you’re unsure whether it’s the right person, click ‘Maybe’ and you’ll get to review the hint again at a later date. If it doesn’t look useful or like the right person, click ‘Reject’ to remove it from your hints list.
