With the recent announcement by Ancestry.com of including indexed records from FamilySearch.org in Ancestry.com's online database collections comes convenience for Ancestry.com family tree users. Additionally, FamilySearch.org gets added exposure out to Ancestry.com users out of the deal.
And you might not think that's a big deal, but I can't tell you how many times I come across Ancestry.com users online and in-person who have never heard of FamilySearch.org.
But there's one thing the user -- the researcher -- needs to remember to do now. And it's critical for research progress or even success.
And I've mentioned something related to it before. Remember when I wrote you could profoundly affect your research if you just did these 3 things?
Well, when it comes to these repeated [and, really, that's what they are] collections from FamilySearch.org on Ancestry.com, the collection description is not listed on Ancestry.com.
Nope. Instead there's this itty bitty link all the way at the bottom. And it's really the most important thing you can do on this page besides the ability to search the collection.
And if you're not careful, you'll miss it.
It should really be a button. A big red button.
Because this fabulous link takes you to the description of the collection sitting over on FamilySearch.org's Wiki. And that's where you can find out more about what the collection contains before looking in it.
So you know just what you're looking at.
So you can make some headway on your research.
Make some profound headway in finding your family stories.
Happy Profound Researching!
