FamilySearch Learning Resources


FamilySearch has long been known to have great genealogical data for vital records. In the last few years, their digital collection has exploded, and more researchers are guided to this great resource. There is also much more to FamilySearch than its digital collections of documents. Their Learning Center has a great source of educational material for both the beginner and those more advanced! Here is some of the resources you might consider looking into:
  • Research Wiki: The Research Wiki is a free collection of family history articles provided by family history enthusiasts from around the world. The wiki makes it easy for people to share research information and useful tips. Research Wiki articles are valuable resources for anyone who wants to learn more about their family history. Within this section you can research your family history, contribute your knowledge to the Wiki, and collaborate with others.

  • Research Courses: FamilySearch offers a variety of free classes online and in person to help you discover your family tree. Whether you are just beginning your family history research or are an experienced genealogist, you can learn something new. These classes are taught by genealogy research consultants at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, as well as experts from around the world. The courses that I recommend are
    1. Tom Joneís Inferential Genealogy
    2. Christine Roseís U.S. Courthouse Research
    3. Several five minutes genealogy episodes that cover various topics
    4. and many more!

    These courses can be searched based on beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. They cover most every country and subject.

  • Discussion Forums: FamilySearch also offers numerous free research discussion forums. With over 2,000 registered volunteers all over the world, itís a pretty good bet that if your question hasnít already been answered, someone is ready to help out. The forums are divided into sections such as Localities, Indexing, Wikis, Family History Center Support, Family History Consultant and many others more generalized topics.

Another area of FamilySearch that might help you is their Tech Tips. It is divided into the following sections:
  • How Toís & Tips
  • Learn About
  • Apps & Tools
  • Learn How to Buy
  • Viewpoint
  • Contribute

So, take some time to visit FamilySearch, not just to research your ancestors, but to educate yourself in new learning resources and articles to assist you in your research endeavors.
