This website is made up of many parts, each one essential to the research of a genealogist. However, many have never heard of the site or have not used it to its' greatest potential. Among the topics to be discussed are the history and why of the website, computer based resources, and what is available on the website. The best and sometimes hidden gems on the FamilySearch website include the Library Catalog, which is an underused and misunderstood piece of greatness; the Historical Books section helps you to tap into the Family History Archives digital collections; the Research Wiki with its free advice for the community; Finding Articles, Guidance, and Online Classes offers ways for you to advance your research by improving your skills and knowledge; Indexing Records allows you to share your time and talents in helping the community; and last but certainly not least, the Records, in fact millions of records, in indexes and digital images going online, for you to search for free.
