I am new to this forum and relatively new to Ancestry.com. I have a practical question about adding the url for an online source to a source citation in Roots Magic 5.
If I do a search on a name in Family Search and get, for example, a Census record, the url is short and simple. If I do the same search at Ancestry.com I get a very long, complex url, which contains my search terms. This isn't appropriate as an url for a Roots Magic online source citation. I know Ancestry.com has simpler urls that give direct access to the same record.
Can anyone tell me how to get from the long Ancestry.com url to a shorter one for the same source and page?
I was going to add examples here, but for some reason I am unable to paste them into this message.
Any help would be appreciated.
