FamilySearch, the web site created by the Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints, is a “meat and potatoes” genealogy resource that all genealogists need to visit and revisit frequently. At this site you can search increasing amounts of data that contain the records of our ancestors. You can also learn about all of the research aids that are available to genealogists to help improve their research capabilities.
The main site of this resource is www.familysearch.org.
The Mount Prospect Public Library is having a genealogy program on Saturday morning, November 6, 2010 from 10 AM to 11:30 AM that is titled “FamilySearch: Another tool for Genealogists”. The speaker for this program will be Susan Anderson.

Knowing about FamilySearch is critical for any genealogy researcher, be they beginner or expert. If you are a true genealogy beginner then this program is very important. If you are a knowledgeable genealogy researcher, you can certainly learn some new methods for using the site in an even more effective manner.
