FamilySearch.org made news last month in genealogy circles when it relaunched
a polished new FamilySearch.org website.
The new FamilySearch.org relocates some
favorite features (to
the consternation of several genealogy bloggers), updates its Family Tree online
trees program, and emphasizes the new photo and story uploading features, as well
as the attractive fan chart.
In our May 9 webinar, Making
the Most of FamilySearch.org, you’ll get a tour the new site and learn to make
the best use of its ancestor-searching potential.
Our presenter, Family Tree Magazine contributing editor Rick
Crume, will show you:
- how to navigate the redesigned FamilySearch.org
- the best search strategies for FamilySearch.org’s free genealogy records databases
how to find and use the genealogy records databases that aren’t covered by the FamilySearch.org
- differences between the site’s new Family Tree program and its user-submitted Genealogies
- how to access FamilySearch records that aren’t online
- how to take advantage of FamilySearch.org’s genealogy help features
- … and more
You can submit your questions about FamilySearch.org to Rick before the webinar, and
there’ll be a Q&A session at the end.
Webinar participants will receive our how-to guide for ordering FamilySearch microfilm,
a PDF handout of the presentation slides and access to view the webinar again as many
times as they like.
the Most of FamilySearch.org webinar is May 9 at 7 p.m. Eastern (6 p.m. Central,
5 p.m. Mountain and 4 p.m. Pacific). For a limited time, you can save
$10 on your registration with our early bird special!
