      If this person belongs to an already existing family on your local data base, review with family search one of the family members you already have. When you review that person on nFS, select the option at the bottom of either parents/siblings or spouses/children, depending on how that new person fits in with the individual in your data base that you have chosen. Expand the family on the nFS side (right side of the screen) by clicking the plus sign

      When you do that you will see the extra person on nFS that you want. click on the the person on the nFS side that you want brought into your data base and hit process and it will come into your data base. Be careful because all the warts come with that person, such as abbreviations that you may not want to introduce into your quick entry place list. When you have completed this process you may have to go into your data base and edit any information you want to change.

      Subject: [AQ_NFS] Add using nFS ID

      Occasionally I come across someone on nFS that is an 'EXTRA'. Meaning they do not exist in my genealogy. I sm starting to record their ID and some things about them. Maybe I need to record it all (with a pencil and paper). (Goal for the week - learn how to use pencil and paper).

      So after researching I believe nFS does indeed have someone I should have in my genealogy.

      Now when I want to ADD a child or spouse I can


      No where can I find a place to enter the nFS ID and pull the person into my genealogy directly from nFS.

      I know the long way around. Find them on nFS and then enter the data and then search for them and sychronize. But wouldn't it be easier to be able to use the FamilySearch ID: and bring them in that way?
