notes that the Member Connect feature has returned to the Ancestry Member Trees.
On a person profile, the "Member Connect" link is on the navigation bar below the name and also on the Tools dropdown menu, as shown below:
And it goes on for all 17 other Ancestry Member Trees that have this person in them. The top of the screen above indicates that there are 4 pages of these connections for this person, but the page numbers don't work - but the right and left arrows do work.
Likewise, at the top of the Member Connect screen are buttons for "Recent Activity," "Connections," and "Suggested Connections." At this time, they all go to this page - they don't go anywhere else for some reason. Perhaps it's still in development.
The significant value of this Member Connect feature is probably that a user can click on one of the sources in the right-hand column and see the actual record, and can then Save it to their Tree person if the user chooses to do it.
NOTE: I think that this is active only in the "New Ancestry" format. I cannot get to "Classic" format for some reason to check.
