Did you find a military record that pieces together the story of your ancestor? It’s easy to attach Fold3 records to your Ancestry Tree. Just follow these steps:

  1. Click the green Save to Ancestry button in the Viewer toolbar or from a Fold3 memorial page
  2. You will be prompted to log into Ancestry (if you are already logged in, this step will be skipped)
  3. Select the Tree you would like to attach your record to
  4. Select the Person would like to attach the link to
  5. Click the green Save button


  1. This never works, not for me anyway. Each time I click on the “Save to Ancestry” and log in, I get this Fold3 message:
    “Sorry, trees are currently unavailable. We’re working hard to resolve this issue. Please try again later.”
    I never get a chance to choose any tree or anything like that, because the above message immediately pops up.

  2. Searching for Mongolian Johnson, a military man that was married to & divorced Queen Victoria Johnson.
