How Do You Use FamilySearch.org?




If you are interested in discovering your family history, FamilySearch.org is a great place to start. FamilySearch.org is a free website that lets you search for records, create a family tree, and connect with other family historians. In this blog post, I will show you how to use some of the features of FamilySearch.org and give you some tips to make your research easier and more fun.


"Create a Free Account" or "Sign in"


First, you need to create a free account on FamilySearch.org. This will allow you to access more records and save your family tree online. To create an account, go to the homepage and click on "Sign In" at the top right corner. Then click on "Create a Free Account" and follow the instructions. You will need to provide your name, email address, and a password. You will also need to agree to the terms of use and privacy policy.

Family Tree


Once you have an account, you can start building your family tree. FamilySearch.org will guide you through the process of adding yourself and your parents. You can also add more relatives by clicking on the green plus signs on the tree. You can enter their names, dates, places, and other information. You can also attach sources, such as birth certificates, census records, or photos, to support your information.


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. You can click on them to review the records and compare them with your information. If they match, you can attach them to your tree and add more details to your ancestors.


Find Relatives


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. You can see how you are related to someone by clicking on their name on the tree and then clicking on "View My Relationship". You can also see their contact information and send them a message if you want to collaborate or share information.

FamilySearch.org is a wonderful resource for anyone who wants to learn more about their family history. It is easy to use and has millions of records and users. I hope this blog post has inspired you to give it a try and discover your roots. Happy searching!
