FamilySearch Tip – Organizing Search Results

14 Comments

I love hearing people say, “Ooooh!” when I show them something new.

In fact, I sort of live for that moment.  Every Thursday and Sunday I work one on one with people on their genealogy.  Of all the tricks I have taught people this one is hands down the most simple and popular.  Hopefully it helps you make your research time more efficient.

A few things:

  • This is my first video tutorial.
  • This trick works even if you don’t start your search from Family Tree.  You can simply search in the records section of familysearch.org and use this trick to organize the results.
  • I’m sorry about the date mistake.  If you notice it, gold star for you.  🙂

Enjoy, and happy searching!

  1. “Oooh, wow!” Since you can only read it, you’ll have to imagine the audio. I didn’t know those tricks. Thanks for all your hard work for the video. Terrific job. [1940? Wouldn’t have noticed ‘cept for your mention]

    • Thanks Cathy, you made me chuckle when I read this for two reasons. One, I don’t think anyone has ever told me they enjoyed listening to my voice. And two, I have a terrible cold now and lost my voice. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it.

  4. Great tutorial! You’ve taught me something new! I’ve just wandered back over to Family Search and I’m trying to incorporate some of the info I have on Ancestry now that I can access Ancestry again! I’ve got my work cut out for me. 🙂
