Automatically Search for Records
One of the best features of FamilySearch.org is that it will automatically search for records that match your ancestors. You will see blue icons on the tree that indicate possible matches.

Another great feature of FamilySearch.org is that it will help you find other users who are related to you or who are researching the same ancestors.
