WELCOME AND INTRODUCTION TO CLASS
RECORD SEARCH PILOT PROGRAM
FAMILYS HISTORY LIBRARY CATALOG AND DIGITIZED BOOKS
INTERNATIONAL GENEALOGICAL INDEX (IGI) AND BATCH NUMBER SEARCHES
ASSIGNMENT
  1. Go to FamilySearch > Search Records > Record Search Pilot and see if you can find information on some ancestor in some indexed database.
  2. Search the full-text books on FamilySearch > Search Records > Historical Books to find one that contains an ancestor's name and some information.
  3. Find the batch number for some location in your database (use Hugh Wallis' website, for example) and do a search with that batch number to find all people in the IGI in that location with that surname.  This sometimes leads to finding other family members of your ancestors.
