“Accessing and Using FamilySearch Partner Sites”

Robert Givens

Categories: IR, LDS

Talk Abstract:
Learn why the main FamilySearch partners (Ancestry, Findmypast, MyHeritage, Filae, AmericanAncestors and Geneanet) offer members of the Church free access to their sites. Learn how to sign up with them, what each site offers and how to upload your FamilySearch Family Tree to their sites. This partnership opens up all kinds of doors to us as we research and the best part it is free of charge. (Remember everyone has access thanks to the portal at your local Family History Center.)
