How to Use the New FamilySearch "Record Search - Pilot Site"
and Get Free Copies of Original Records

Note: This information is too good not to have a video clip. This lesson is from the January 2008 issue of the Treasure Maps Genealogy email newsletter.

This is the "Record Search - Pilot Site

Free Genealogy Records Online? Yes! You've got to try this. You may have been to the FamilySearch site before, but what they are working on is truly wonderful. I'm talking about access to copies of free original records - and you've got to see the interface. Very, very nice.

This is happening in part (a large part) because of "thousands of volunteers around the world who are helping to make more free records available online through FamilySearch Indexing." You will see links asking for volunteer "Indexers" on the Pilot site. I imagine many of Treasure Maps readers are involved with this already.

Try this for yourself, as shown in the examples in the video. Find some of your ancestors and save those records.

The FamilySearch, Record Search - Pilot Site, is only going to get better and better. And bless all of you volunteers in the Indexing program.
