I'm interested in a good repository for family history, replete with detailed notes and evidence of vetting. Although I have thousands of photos in my database at home, I'm not much interested in posting them because I recognize they consume monstrous amounts of storage. A couple of years ago, I uploaded my GED file and looked at it a few times but gave up for several reasons. First this system was painfully slow. Secondly, I couldn't figure out why the thousands of notes and citations were not available. Yesterday and today, I again invested time in my file here but found the same problems. I don't know how this system achieved #3 but perhaps I'm missing something. I'll check back when I have plenty of time to search for my notes, citations, links, etc. If anyone has hints for me, I'd like to hear them. In the mean time, I'm still looking.
which you will reach once you click on his name in the People page.
You will see the notes there.
We are planning to improve this feature,
so that the notes will be made more accessible.

Thanks, Noam. I found how to add notes--and they show up in the person's page (family tree-->notes & sources). But I'm not understanding what the difference is, in genealogy, between the "citation" tab, then "source" button & the "notes" tab in Family Tree Builder. I listed "obituary" as the citation when referring to the obituary of Nicholas Fachilla in my tree. However, as I also listed "obituary" as a citation for another family member, when you view Frank's events & facts-->death-->obituary, it shows the 2 people that I listed "obituary" for in their citations. What would be the proper way to use the citations tab in FTB? I'm thinking that I should maybe have written the name of the newspaper, but even that could feasibly produce duplicates--for instance, if a particular newspaper listed several obituaries for persons in the tree. And then what goes in the "source" button under the "citation" tab? It might be helpful if better descriptions were added to the FTB User Guide for these detail areas.
Here's an image of Citations, where you can put in text, and then if you edit the source, there's yet another spot for text. What's the difference? (well...maybe not! Why does your site say a 97.4 KB image say is over 300 KB?)
