Mormon Church, thanks
03 November 2016
Reviewer: Carla from Healdsburg, CA

This place offers what other sites charge for. I tried those other sites, then a friend told me about going to the Mormon church. You have to find a church that has the lab set up. They had a staff there to accommodate my needs, get me going, and show me how to use their site. I love going there, and when I am stuck, if they can't answer my needs, they will get a call in to someone who can. No charge. Free. Can't beat that!!

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

Best free online gen research site anywhere

Reviewer: Leona Bell from California

I have been using the genealogy research resources made available for free online by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for quite a few years, including their current Family Search website. Even though there was some disruption of service for a bit while the church got their current family search site up and running, in general I have found this resource very useful. The church has extensive searchable records, with more being added over time. There are also some pedigrees (family trees) submitted by others who enjoy doing genealogy research on their families.

Registration to use the site is easy, and the initial search engine on the site is easy to use. You can set up a family tree for yourself and your family (information on those still living is kept confidential) and this can be added to as more research gives you more information. In addition, the family tree you create can be used to conduct more searching of the records the site has available and will still be there whenever you visit the site again.

The online help features (both FAQ type information, and online chat with a helpful genealogy research volunteer) can... (Read the full review)

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

Superb

There is not much to say other than the site is probably better than those where you have to register and pay. Easy to use, understand and also obtain information. All in all, excellent

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

Great site and It is all free

Reviewer: Maryv449 from Orchard Park, NY

How can you knock a site that is so giving? I have learned a lot from this site and highly recommend it to anyone. They have put so many records to help people, it is unbelievable. And for free. All I can say is thank you and I am grateful that they do this. This is how I started doing genealogy, and it has been a big help. I have Ancestry.com, world vital records, footnote.com and newspaperarchive.com besides but I always end up back at familysearch.org.

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