I was researching a particular line of my family, that I’d not looked at in quite a while. I don’t have any general or research notes on this person, so I wondered when I had last looked at her.
Here’s how to find out.
From the Family View – click in the very lower right hand corner, in the blank area, next to the M:1.
(CLICK ON ANY IMAGE TO ENLARGE IT)
This is the screen you will see next.
Now I know that I have not looked at this ancestor since I entered her into my database on 1 Aug 2011.
HERE'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I RECEIVED AFTER I POSTED THIS - If you are reviewing a person in your database, but you haven't made any changes, if you click "save" it will change the modified date. If you click "cancel" the modified date will remain the same. I have a habit of clicking save every time I view anyone's record, but I think I will change that habit after learning this. Sometimes, I'm just taking a look and I don't want the modified date to indicate changes were made.
It’s always kind of surprising when I see how long a time passes until I get back to a particular ancestor. And, surprisingly, I don’t have a particularly large database, just 4796 people. And, I research almost daily.
That your tip for today.
