Ancestry's new relationship indicator

DearREADERS,
Just when Ol' Myrt here thought it was safe to step away from her computer, something new showed up for me at Ancestry.com's online family trees -- a new "VIEW RELATIONSHIP TO ME" button when viewing an individual on the screen. By clicking that new button, I received the following, which is easily copied/pasted into email when corresponding with a cousin, as indicated by my blue highlights below.  Of course, this all depends on my having entered the data accurately to begin with, but I digress.



Because I allowed the default "Show relationship on profile page" we have the  new sub-title for my Mary Ann Hoope highlighted in blue below:



Kewl beans.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     :)
