Knowing how to use the FamilySearch Catalog will greatly enhance a beginner's knowledge of what is available on the FamilySearch.org website, in the Family History Library and the local Family History Centers.
Our April Beginners' Class covered a quick overview of the FamilySearch Catalog (formerly called the Family History Library Catalog), the different ways to search within the catalog, how to read a catalog entry and finally, how to download digitized books.
Here is the FamilySearch Catalog Handout which contains the links to the FamilySearch Wiki articles and other articles that go into depth on how to use the FamilySearch catalog.
The last entry on the handout, FamilySearch Catalog Exercise, is a set of questions to test your understanding of how to use the catalog.
Enjoy and thanks for attending the TCGS Beginners' Class.
