Family Tree University: Become an Ancestry.com Power User
Online Editor Tyler Moss joins Lisa to provide tips for
getting the most from Ancestry.com from the “Become an Ancestry.com Power User”
course at FTU.
Ancestry.com is like a KitchenAid mixer: you know it has the
capacity to make pasta, grind meat and juice a grapefruit, but you mostly just
use it to beat cake batter. You might conduct basic Ancestry.com searches every
day, but know little about the cool collections and databases available for
browsing, exciting advanced search features, or the fun functions featured
within Ancestry.com family trees. This course is certain to expand your
knowledge of the world’s largest online resource for family history, so sign up
and dig in.
