Family History Genealogy notes

or Who are You?

This is a compilation of links, notes and tips to help with family history.  Many of them I have been asked over and over, so I thought I would document the tips here.

Family History sites

Familysearch.org.   Free to everyone.  Not millions of individual trees, but trying to make 1 tree for all, eventally.  It may take a millenium.

My Family Search notes  May be helpful to the novice.

Indexing.   How we get records updated so we can use computer search/matching!  We need your help

Recordseek  A browser extension that allows you to link any web record to individuals in Familysearch or Ancestry.   For Familysearch linking you need the xxx-xxx ID that is unique to every record.   If you hover over this ID in Familysearch a "copy id" option pops up you just click.
