FamilySearch Special Interest Group

Picture of FamilySearch LogoThe FamilySearch SIG will teach you about the best free genealogy website on the internet. A major feature is its one world, family tree that you can update, with over one billion people. It also has records from all over the world which verify birth, marriage and death dates/places. There is a full set of U.S. Census records including downloadable images. There are more than 2,500 collections of records.
 
At each meeting we will discuss different parts of FamilySearch. The main areas are Help, Search, Family Tree, Memories, Indexing and Activities. FamilySearch.org has proved so popular that many 3rd party programs have been developed that extend its use. For example http://relative finder.org will find show exact relationships and common ancestors going back as many as fifteen generations; There are a number of games including Geneapordy.... similar to the TV program, Jeopardy. Several family tree lineage programs interact with FamilySearch, for example Legacy Family Tree and RootsMagic.
