FamilyBrowse - Another Way to Look at FamilySearch - new webinar by Mary Roddy now available

FamilySearch.org has millions of images on its website, many of which are unindexed and not yet searchable. But if you know how to get into the catalog and browse around, you can find the unindexed images of birth and death certificates, naturalization papers, deeds, wills, estate inventories and more. Learn tricks to get into the catalog, why using the map on the FamilySearch search page might not be the best way to find records, and learn about some of the many and varied indexing schemes used in county record books.

Help Us Publish More Free Records Online

Searchable historical records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of online volunteers worldwide. These volunteers transcribe (or index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are always needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published weekly online on FamilySearch.org. Learn how you can volunteer to help provide free access to the world’s historical genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org/Indexing.
