When you find an ancestor on one of our more than 240 million images, you know how satisfying it can be and how much information you can gather from the image.
And it's getting even better. Coming soon, our new enhanced image page will show you the image of the historical document as well as the indexed information for each record on the same page, making it easier than ever to find your ancestors. You’ll also be able to add alternate information for several data points, view source information and see what other members have said about the image.
We'd love to hear what you think!
If you've ever tried to read an image you know how handy it would be to see the indexed information on the same screen. On our enhanced image page, the index panel below the image will show you the transcription for each record.
It's now even easier to add alternate names to our indices making it easier for other members to find their ancestors. And you can add alternate years and places as well. First look at what other members have added. If you don't see what you think is right, add it.
Find out who else is searching for your ancestors. The Member Connect panel will show you who has found this record to be an important piece of documentation for their family tree. You'll be able to connect with them, share information, and discover more together.Learn more about Member Connect
