    Ancestry DNA tips

    By Dave,
    If you use the Chrome browser on Windows, you might want to install this MedBetterDNA extension. It's really good for if you're adding notes to your matches (and you really should add notes). The first thing is that you can set it to show the text from all of your notes on the index pages. It saves you having to click the little icon for each note. Next, you can add up to four #hashtags for your notes and only display those matches with (or without) your specified #tag. E.g., I have one for #paternal - for ones that I've deduced are from my dad's side. I have another for #mystery - which may or may not be solved in coming weeks. If you install this extension you'll soon find out how useful it is. More info

    Mirror Tree query

    By woodsman,
    I created a mirror tree from a 2/3 cousin, call her Linda, [Cn 249].  The results came back with a green leaf hint that her father Geoffrey is part of  my relative line, now do I create a second mirror tree and take Geoffrey as the start point.  I did have in the original mirror tree Geoffrey and his Dad Eric in the tree, would it have shown Eric initially as a relative as well. Thoughts appreciated....

    Also known as Cabbage White. I think this was dying as they only live to maximum of 3/4 weeks.I didn't know what to do when it came up to me,not the best pictures .     This below was a tricky picture with one hand.   Common White by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     You can tell with the markings on the wings what they are,seen them plenty of times...not the allotments favorite.    Common White by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     I felt sorry for it as it was tilting after this picture,it must have been on it's way out.   Common White by Robbob 2010, on Flickr
