Takes vital information from an Ancestry Family Tree profile page and makes it easy to search FamilySearch.org using those details.
This extension takes the vital information from an Ancestry Family Tree profile page and makes it easy to search FamilySearch.org using those details. (An Ancestry subscription is required to view other people’s Ancestry Family Trees.)
=== GETTING STARTED ===
Once the extension is installed, visit an Ancestry Family Tree, view an individual’s profile page, and look for the small tree icon on the right-hand side of your address bar. Clicking the icon will allow you to search the FamilySearch.org website using the individual’s information from the Ancestry Family Tree profile page.
=== FEATURES ===

• birth year and location, death year and location, or any event and location between the birth and death years (and if either year doesn’t exist, the extension searches within a 100 year period instead)
• names of spouses or parents
The following Ancestry sites are supported:
