Saving your ancestors this way is particularly useful if you would like to check websites every so often to see if any there is anything new on family trees. It also helps if you are working your way through the list of websites over a period of days or weeks. You do not need to keep re-entering the ancestor information to repeat your searches. The ancestors are saved until you are ready to start searching again.
