Saturday Seminar

On Saturday, March 19th Lynell Moss dazzled us with her extensive knowledge of FamilySearch.org. The look and feel of FamilySearch.org is changing and Lynell was our guide to the new site.

Check out FamilySearch.org and explore all that it has to offer. Content is being moved over from the old site and new content is being added. In addition to digitized records, the Family History Library Catalog there are tools to help us learn - the Wiki, research courses and tips on getting started.

If you have time, you can give back to the genealogy community by indexing records or posting information on the Wiki. Volunteer indexing is making the digitized records on FamilySearch.org easier to use.

Lynell was gracious enough to let us post her handout on the GenFriends website. Click on the link above to get to the handout.

Thanks again to Lynell.
