FamilySearch (owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) has completely revised their website (https://www.Familysearch.org) to host all of their past and future online offerings. There is a wealth of FREE historical record collections on the site, with more being added every month as a result of image processing and Volunteer Indexing. The online Research Wiki, which replaces the paper Research Guides, provides educational material about genealogy research techniques, historical record collections, and localities (countries, states, counties). The Family History Library Catalog has been improved with links to online books and records. Many online Research Courses (video presentations) have been provided for continuing education, with more added regularly. FamilySearch Forums provide an opportunity to interact with FamilySearch and subject matter experts. The new FamilySearch Family Tree is still in development, and may be available to all researchers later in 2011.
