One of the most satisfying aspects of Family History work is finding new family members through research efforts. Researching has become significantly easier with the help of multiple search services, "Record Hints", and such. So many different types of records are on-line now, such as Census Records, Military Draft Records, City Directories, Probates & Wills, birth, marriage, and death certificates, obituaries, and more.
This site will help you with information about the variety of resources available to you. Feel free to explore them. New information is added often, so please check back periodically.

Family Tree "Memories"

A Wonderful Way to Share Your Photos, Stories, Documents, & Audio

There are 5 goals to this module. This lesson plan has a lot of material attached to it and is presented as a guide to use as future questions may arise. The goal, using the Sunday class worksheet, is to help you understand the basics of uploading "memories" that you have sitting around your home, or in your thoughts. There are a lot more functions built into Family Tree and this lesson plan can point you to those.
