The FamilySearch Family Tree differs from other online Trees because it is a single tree, not a collection of private user trees, and it can be edited by anyone. This class will put to rest some of the most common fears and frustrations in using FamilySearch.org by teaching best practices to reduce duplication of effort and to enhance search results. The class will be part direct instruction and part workshop, including tips on searching unindexed records. Class members are encouraged to bring laptops.
