The description of the FamilySearch.org Research booklet includes:
- You can use the site to upload your family tree, family photos, stories, and document images.
- You can produce a pedigree chart or fan chart of your family tree.
- You can search or browse the contents of FamilySearch’s enormous collection of genealogical records and user-submitted genealogies.
- You can use the FamilySearch Wiki to help you research more than 75,000 articles.
- You can use the Learning Center’s online courses and video tutorials free of charge.
For someone like me that teaches and talks about genealogy a bit, it is invaluable because I can pull it out and provide some guidance to my student or colleague interested in the subject.
The beauty of these "Genealogy at a Glance" booklets is that they are very light and portable in a briefcase or laptop case. They are fixtures in my research case.
This four-page laminated booklet costs $8.95, plus postage and handling. You can order it through the Genealogical Store, or use the link for the FamilySearch.org Research booklet and click on the "Add to Cart" link. I recommend buying these at seminars and conferences where they are offered in order to avoid the shipping costs.
