Do You Read the Whole Page?

An attendee at a recent conference was unaware that she could search FamilySearch by a specific region or country. Part of the reason was that she was not scrolling down on the entire first page--where those options are listed.

Do you always look at the entire page, especially the first time you use a site, to make certain there are not options that you are overlooking?


  1. Also, it's a good idea to look at the next image. For example, World War II draft registrations on have continue onto the next image! You miss a lot of good information if you don't look at that image.

  2. The worst mistake a genealogist can make is to quit looking too soon. This applies to web pages, newspapers, county record books, etc.
