Using Ancestry.com and Family Search.org
In this class we will explore using both Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org and discuss the difference.
Ancestry.com is the largest private online genealogy database. It allows users to create virtual family trees to trace their lineage, and get “hints” about who else could be their ancestors. It also contains historical records that can be connected to family members and used as genealogical evidence. Some of the features of Ancestry.com requires a paid subscription and some features are free.
FamilySearch.org is one of the largest and most trusted websites for genealogical research for several reasons. As many may already know, this site is run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This site is completely free for all to use, whether they are members of the LDS Church or not.
With over 100 years of experience collecting and preserving records, the LDS Church created a website to digitize their vast collection, which grows daily due to worldwide digitization projects (indexing) manned by an international army of volunteer indexers working from home.
