Family Search Online Training

It’s just a click away

Have you ever spent long hours puzzling over FamilySearch?  Or found yourself wishing that someone would take over your keyboard and show you how?  Perhaps you want to get started with your family history but don’t know where to start.  Never fear, help is at hand!  Within the past few days FamilySearch has stated:

“In our efforts to continually provide a better research experience for everyone who uses FamilySearch, we are continually adding more useful features, databases and upgrades. One of the big challenges we face is keeping our training up to date.

One solution that FamilySearch has chosen to use to address this problem is to add online training that can be updated quickly and easily.

…Some of our most useful and popular training has been put online for you to use quickly and easily.”

What a great idea!  Thank you kind friends at FamilySearch!
