Is there a way to add the same source to a group of people: all ancestors of an individual? Thanks for any help!

You can memorize and paste it to as many people as you want, one at a time.
Or you can add the same source to everyone you import with a GEDCOM file.

And, you can go to the List - Source List and choose an existing source or create a new one, then hit the multiple cite button. then choose the people you want the source attached to. But, it goes as a general source, not a fact source as far as I can tell.
Just as a test, I gave all of my paternal first cousins the test source by choosing my paternal grandfather and marking three generations of descendants, then un-marking him and two generations of descendants.

Yes...thank you. Although I would like it to have a option for fact source, the general source works for me in this case. Thank you for the help.
