“Using Puzzilla to Find Ancestors and Descendants”

Robert Givens

Categories: IR, LDS

Talk Abstract:
Puzzilla is a third-party program designed to read your family tree information in the FamilySearch Family Tree. It enables you to quickly see large areas of your ancestry or descent in one quick look and determine where you will most likely be able to add new people to Family Tree. Puzzilla has both free and paid (advanced feature) versions. You can use the paid version for free at your local Family History Center. This presentation will demonstrate several real-life examples of how easy it is to find names to add to Family Tree using this product.
