The wonder of FamilySearch is the things they do for free.

I have been using FamilySearch for thirty years and it has continually improved. For free they are the only source for some information. A particular case is South Africa Where I have been able to find records for at least 80% of my relatives who have lived there. It is marvellous that they have supplied images of the original documents so that I can make my own transcript from such and be sure I have the records (fairly!) right.

They have recently improved the presentation of the summaries of the records for people, making it easy to see what vital records that they can provide.

Earlier today I tried to see if I could make an offering to their funds as I was so grateful for all the information I have been given by them. But they do not allow it, it is all for free.

In summary, I would recommend Family Search to a friend.
