If this library doesn't doesn't look familiar to you, listen up! This is the new library that was created when the FHC in the south Salt Lake area were consolidated. If you missed my post about it, go back a couple of months for a viral tour of this library. This library also holds classes of all sorts! Go to this list and you will find the perfect class for your needs!

Are you afraid of making mistakes in new FamilySearch because you don't feel that you know what you are doing? Then training.familysearch.org is for you. There are practice exercises that you can work through so that the basics of the new FamilySearch program are reinforced in your brain! The nice thing is that you aren't working in the actual database so you CAN'T mess anything up!

Genealogy is a lifelong pursuit. It can't and won't be done in a day! It's always useful to learn a little each day. Try to do one genealogy activity each day. Maybe read that article that you cut out of a magazine months ago, file five papers into your filing system, or spend one hour labeling your pictures. Once you get in the habit of doing something each day, you will find that you are making progress! Progress is good, even by baby steps!

Have you been on beta.familysearch.org lately. A major update has just been released. Go see the changes for yourself! In addition, check out the information under the headings at the top. I particularly like the How To and the Blog sections. There is always something new to learn!
In addition, the Ancestry Insider blog (http://ancestryinsider.blogspot.com) has a couple of recent posts that are very insightful about new FamilySearch and the direction it is heading. Happy Reading!
