FamilySearch Special Interest Group
The 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 cases fully 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 and Indexing. 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 finds connections between people going back many generations; There are a number of games including Geneapordy.... similar to Jeapordy. Family Tree programs interact with FamilySearch, for example Legacy Family Tree and RootsMagic.
Guests are welcome and are encouraged to join our Society.
