What is a floating tree? Why should you create a floating tree? This is an excellent strategy for genealogy research to find other ancestors within your ancestors clan. This is a Tiny Tip Clip from a previous episode listed below.

In this episode I’ll show you how to create a floating tree on Ancestry.com and how it can help you with your genealogy research.

A floating tree is simply an unlinked tree within your family tree on Ancestry.com. It’s primary purpose is to trace other people or clans that are somehow associated with your ancestors.  

A floating tree stands alone and is not linked to anyone in your primary tree but is contained within the same file name as the tree you are working on.
