New FamilySearch Manual Updated

By July 6, 2011

Follow me on:

George W. Scott has updated his free manual: "How To Use New FamilySearch Correctly" which is available for download at his website UsingFamilySearch.com. Here's some information on this major update including how to get a pre-printed copy of the 81 page manual at cost:
"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 roll out 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 is 1-800-374-7296, extension 2. I don't receive any proceeds; that is their photocopying expense."
I found the website for Stevenson's Genealogy Center as well as a direct link to purchase an updated copy of "How to Use New Family Search Correctly".

Although this New FamilySearch Manual is not an official document of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints it's still a great resource to help us more fully understand how to use the Church's New FamilySearch website as we seek to do our Family History. Many thanks to Brother Scott for his service in writing, updating, and providing this free New FamilySearch manual to us!
