FamilySearch Forum Instructions

FamilySearch has recently created a new tool for you to get genealogical help in the comfort of your own home. You no longer need to go to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City to get much of the help that you need.  Of course, it’s free! 
 
This new tool is the Community Groups. 
 
In these groups you can post questions, documents for translation, take part in discussions, read announcements about webinars, and learn of various resources. You can also share your knowledge by answering questions from, translating documents for other members, or sharing information about resources; you will certainly know things that others won’t and you will be able to make the group more valuable for everyone.  It will be a great learning tool. 
 
There are many groups, some focused on specialized research and others on specific countries or groupings of countries.  Here are some of the groups that you might be interested in:
 
Germany
Austro-Hungarian Empire
Switzerland
Belgium, Luxembourg, and The Netherlands
Nordic Countries
 
You can join any or all of them!
 
Please join and be active in these groups. It will be very rewarding.
 
Here are instructions on how to join; there are two sets, one with only the directions and one with directions and screen shots.
 
 
We look forward to your participation!
