14:27 – I have added sources and get the message “unfinished attachments”, what should I do?
18:31 – I know that for places of burials, actual cemetery names are not accepted as standard. Where is the best place to add this additional information?
21:44 – I have photos of relatives on my photo folder in my computer. In FamilySearch and Ancestry, where do I put in the photo?
22:50 – I have a birth set of parents and then an adopted set also. It says to set the preferred parent. How do you do that?
25:30 – Family Tree information is saved for everyone, however most of us save information in other places as well. Is there any way to create an electonic Will that will save information for future generations?

"BYU access" means that the item is accessible on BYU campus or remotely for logged-in BYU students and faculty. If labeled “BYU campus” then it is available anywhere on BYU campus, but not remotely. "BYU Library" indicates that you may only access the resource while physically at the BYU Library. (If you have a personal account with any of these sites, you can access them anywhere. If so, it is best to access them directly rather than using these links.)

*FamilySearch is accessiable anywhere on the Internet, but many of the images (ca. 25-30%) require viewing at a FamilySearch family history center. BYU Library is also designated as a family history center allowing access to these images.
