Mini-Myrt: WikiTreeX



DearREADERS,
We learned that the Chrome Browser Extension WikiTreeX can compare a WikiTree profile with a profile on other genealogy websites and import data. We learned that if the item you are wishing to import is a indexed entry, say on FamilySearch, it works beautifully. However, if the item is a browsable image, not indexed, such as Death records of Salt Lake City, Utah, 1848 - Sept. 1950 the entry must be handled manually. CASE IN QUESTION: William W. Player 23 Feb 1873, Page 142, No. A5641, Image 185 of 694 (familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-99XF-LD2T : viewed 3 Feb 2021.) USEFUL LINKS Import data into WikiTree from other websites.
