Late in 2010, FamilySearch launched the much anticipated, updated version of its FamilySearch website.

This new website,, combines information found at the old FamilySearch website and the Record Search Pilot website.

The latter two websites will continue to be available for now but eventually will be replaced by the new

To learn more about the new website, including what it now includes, current and future plans as well as demonstrations of present capabilities, copy and paste the following URL into your web browser:

On the resulting webpage, click on "Watch a recording of the bloginar," which is located immediately below “...December 2010” near the top of the page.

The live FamilySearch bloginar was conducted December 15, 2010, and the recorded portion consists of 40 minutes of the live presentation/demonstrations followed by 22 minutes of Q&A. The recorded portion joins the bloginar in progress so it may take a few seconds for viewers to grasp the information that is being presented.

Note: If a problem is experienced when attempting to view the presentation, it may be necessary to retry the connect process one or more times.
