FamilySearch Continues To Teach Folks

FamilySearch continues neck-and-neck with Ancestry to see who can give us the most needful and wonderful data AND to teach us how to use that information when we find it. The FamilySeach newsletter contained this great snippet:

5 Minute Genealogy: Find a Record in 5 Minutes
The 5 Minute Genealogy series is an on-going set of videos that covers a wide variety of topics in a simple and easy-to-follow format. They are available free of charge to the public through the FamilySearch website. View this video by clicking here!


Our EWGS team helping with the 1940 census indexing project has indexed over 60,000 records..... and closer to 65,000 by the time you read this. For a relatively small group (35) that is phenomenal, don't you think?  I'm betting FamilySearch will have the 1940 census up and available to us before Ancestry does. Several states are indexing-completed but not arbitrated and posted yet...... but at least five states are 100% ready:  Nevada, Maine, Washington DC and Delaware.
