Changes to the FamilySearch website

Take a peek at the new changes and refinements at the FamilySearch.org site. Technology is zooming forward! New changes recently made to this research site include more scanned records and documents, improvements to searches, and interactive forums. Tutorials are available on the site to help with navigating the new site and the old site will be available through the transition. Also recently, four million records from seven countries, including the first from South Africa, were ready for searching. Other countries include Brazil, Canada, Germany, Guatemala, the Netherlands, and the United States. About 1.7 million of these records are indexed, according to a news release. Check out the changes and additions at http://www.familysearch.org/.

  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  2. I have had some really good luck on the new site - especially with acquiring great images. You have to search different ways though to get different results.
    Good luck hunting those ancestors!
