Seattle Genealogical Society Tip of the Week

TIP OF THE WEEK –
DIGITAL LIBRARY AT FamilySearch
  Thanks to Dick Eastman and his free online genealogy newsletter for reminding us about the FamilySearch Digital Library and its collection of more than 440,000 digitized genealogy and family history books and publications right at our fingertips.

At the Digital Library, you can dive into family histories, county and local histories, genealogy magazines, gazetteers, and even medieval histories and pedigrees. (You do have your free FamilySearch account, right? Be sure to be logged in.) 

Visit FamilySearch.org, and click Search in the top menu. Then, in the drop-down menu, click Books

Or you can also go directly to the new URL—FamilySearch.org/library/books

The content of the digital library is freely viewable. On the home page of the Digital Library, use the simple search bar to search by a surname, historical events, groups of people, book title, or names of places. Go ahead! Try it.

Check back often as more and more books are being added to the Digital Library every day.
