It has been a while since I have updated about the newest in FamilySearch. The developers and product managers have been moving so fast lately it has been hard to keep up.
They have a FamilySearch Channel on YouTube that keeps people abreast of changes and dreams for the website.
The other big changes have been on the Wiki. They have done a series of upgrades. If you used to be a Wiki contributor, you may have to request editing rights. There is a form on the pages to fill out if needed. The FamilySearch Wiki is up to 84, 488 articles now. So much help is found here. put in a search term and see how many articles there are. FamilySearch has several pages on the Wiki of how to use FamilySearch. This is one such article on FamilySearch Search Tips and Tricks.
They use the Wiki to give instruction and tips on using Family Tree also. This is an example of the articles, it says "Attaching FamilySearch (FS) Records to Family Tree Using the Source Linker" but it is so much more. Click on the title to view.
A personal favorite is the FamilySearch.org/blog. Just as we have a Worldwide collaborative genealogy blog, they have many guest posts who write about many different aspects of FamilySearch from Roots Tech (which by the way has opened registration for next February 2017. ) to what is the latest changes, Indexing, or someone's stories.
|From the blog you can explore everything. I put a red square, or arrow where you can join in. The Search drop down will give you the Wiki.|
FamilySearch is my passion, I hope you will love it too.
