FamilySearch - so much more than just the collaborative Family Tree
Some times users of FamilySearch
get "turned off" by the collaborative nature of the Family Tree - where
users don't really have total control of the data and sometimes get
frustrated with changes made by others. Such a frustration is totally
understandable when such people don't realize the collaborative nature
of Family Tree and in some cases would be better off using a standalone
all so often I feel bad that such people so often "throw the baby out
with the dish water" and just leave FamilySearch all together - when
there are so many different valuable other components of FamilySearch
that are so useful.
The depth and width and variety of FamilySearch resources is really incredible.
is just a list - in rather random order. You may wish to copy and paste
it to a bookmark list or notepad item where you can access it often.
