FamilySearch’s Many Websites

FamilySearch logo In the years since FamilySearch introduced, their offerings have splintered into a dozen mostly disconnected websites. I look forward to the time that FamilySearch combines all these offerings into one. In the meantime, like me you may appreciate a handy list of links. Bookmark this article or look for it at .

FamilySearch Websites

Church Links

Websites for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Temple and Family History manuals for members of the Church

    *This isn’t a separate website, but a link I like to have handy.


    1. The Family Record Extraction Administrative Handbook is not exactly retired - but I have a different link for the current one. I didn't compare to see if they were both the same. It does however refer quite a bit to UDE which is going away. The indexing parts are still applicable, though:

    2. Dear Janell,

      Thanks for the comment. I've changed the note to reflect the info you've given.

      I checked to get an official link. I compared a little bit of the two versions. The version has a newer English approval date, 10/08. The only changes I could see were the help e-mail (pp. 2 and 16), page number placement, and the bar code on the back.

      BTW, I moved NFS down to the Church section for the time being.

    3. Thank you for the great links. I have just started taking a Family History sunday school class, and I am sure that I will be using all these links in the near future. Thanks for all your help!
