FamilyBrowse - Another Way to Look at FamilySearch.org


FamilySearch.org has millions of images on its website, many of which are unindexed and not searchable. But if you know how to get into the catalog and browse around, you can find the unindexed images of birth and death certificates, naturalization papers, deeds, wills, estate inventories and more. Learn tricks to get into the catalog, why using the map on the FamilySearch search page might not be the best way to find records, and learn about some of the many and varied indexing schemes used in county record books.
