The following is from George Scott, author of "How to Use New FamilySearch Correctly".
Dear Friend: I recently posted an update to my manual "How To Use New FamilySearch Correctly" at my website,www.usingfamilysearch.com. The updated manual is now available for free download. This was a major update, as it is the first update in 17 months, so a large portion of the manual has been modified to reflect the many changes which have occurred in New FamilySearch. So I suggest you will likely want to print the entire manual. The manual is 81 pages in length, including 3 un-numbered pages at the beginning. This is about 7 pages longer than the previous version. Changes include the Watch feature, the termination of Disputes, the new Discussions feature, the rollout to the general public, and many smaller issues. I also updated the chapter on future changes to New FamilySearch and the chapter on third-party (Affiliate) software programs. Since many nFS patrons have inkjet printers, it might be cheaper to get a copy from Stevenson's Genealogy Center in Provo. Stevenson's sells the manual in a spiral binder for $4.25. Their phone number is1-800-374-9600, extension 2. I don't receive any proceeds; that is their photocopying expense. I greatly apologize for the delay in this update. I was providing 24/7 care to my wife for 9 months. Shortly after she deceased, mom suffered a massive stroke, so I took care of her for 5 months until another family member recently took over. Again, I apologize for the delay and promise to keep the manual better updated in the future. (In the future, I will identify the pages that have been updated; I didn't do so for this update, since so much was changed.) I promised to make a video tutorial based on the manual. I also have to apologize for the huge delay on that project. I am working on it once again and hope to have the first segments available on the website in September 2011. It will also be available for free download. Again, I am very, very sorry for the delays. I hope the manual has been helpful to you. I have received a great amount of positive feedback. There are currently over 50,000 copies of the manual in use. Best wishes, George W. Scott Orem, Utah
