Introducing a New Resource - FamilySearch Forums

The following is from FamilySearch.

18 November 2009

Dear consultant or center director,

As a family history consultant or center director, you know the joy that comes from helping someone with a family history question. Did you know that the answer you gave a member in your ward is most likely the exact answer needed by someone somewhere else in the world? Have you ever been stumped by a family history question and wished you could get help from someone who has solved the very issue that has you stumped?

Well, now you can give and receive help from fellow family history consultants and FamilySearch users who reside anywhere in the world.

FamilySearch is pleased to introduce a prototype for FamilySearch Forums, found at, where in one central place you can reach out and:

· search for answers to your family history research questions.

· ask questions and receive answers from experienced FamilySearch patrons.

· provide answers to fellow FamilySearch patrons in need.

Click here to immediately begin finding answers or to join an existing conversation regarding:

· family history research questions.

· the new FamilySearch.

· FamilySearch indexing.

· Family history centers.

It’s fast, easy, fun, and as always, it’s free!

The Forums are providing answers to many questions both from experienced researchers in specific countries and from other browsers. Everyone is welcome to contribute and it is worth pointing out that FamilySearch wiki needs contributions however small. You may be able to add something of the places you live in or previously lived in or record sources you know of for a particular location.
