Effective Database Search Techniques at FamilySearch
Date/Time 14 January 2017 2:00 PM Central US Time
FamilySearch includes many images of actual records that are indexed and other databases that are indexes to records that are not online. Searching these materials effectively helps you to gain more from the site, make better use of your time, and find more information about your ancestors. There’s more to FamilySearch than simply typing a name in the search box and hoping to find something. In this presentation we will discuss:
- creating search strategies
- global searches versus database specific searches
- filtering and narrowing results
- knowing what you’ve located
- multiple databases for similar materials
- pitfalls to avoid
- tracking your searches
- Register for live attendance–includes handout and complimentary download of media file after recording has been processed
- Pre-order download of presentation and handout–live attendance not included
