Without a doubt, FamilySearch has taken the genealogy community by storm in the last couple years. The emphasis placed on the digitizing and indexing of records, and the FamilySearch wiki, in addition to the effort put into New.FamilySearch, is and will continue to be a driving force, allowing genealogists worldwide to locate and record more ancestral data than ever before. FamilySearch is front and center in the online dissemination of an ever-expanding trove genealogical data, with the FamilySearch.org website being the portal through which genealogists access data, volunteer their indexing skills, and in the case of LDS church members, submit ordinance data. This volume provides detailed instructions to the content and organization of all the current FamilySearch websites. Heavily illustrated with screen-shots, the book makes it extremely easy to put into practice what one just learned in the book. If you are already a user of these sites, you will most likely find insights into features and information you likely did not know existed. I certainly did. As an example of just one part of the book, I found the section on FamilySearch Wiki to be extremely helpful. This portion of the book is worth the price all by itself. Note that one of the final sections of the book deals with New.FamilySearch, which is just beginning to be opened up to the general public. Since this portion of FamilySearch includes temple ordinance submission, it has been available only to members of the LDS church. However, massive genealogy trees are being assembled on the site, and it is now being tested to a relatively small group of non-LDS users. The plan is that this will become available to the general public, who will be able to interact with the site, and trees, but not the ordinance portions. Reading this part of James' book will give LDS members and nonmembers alike a good idea of what New.FamilySearch can do for them.
