Hurray Free Memberships!!! Full Steam Ahead!!!

Today I received an email from FamilySearch that I am entitled to free memberships at Ancestry.comMyHeritage.comFindMyPast.com. I knew this was coming. It was announced at RootsTech 2014 that members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would be eligible for free memberships because of collaboration and sharing of the resources of the church with these organizations.

I did not expect it would happen so soon. I surmised that maybe by the end of the summer I would be able to get my free memberships. I already had current memberships with Ancestry and My Heritage and I have had a membership with Find My Past before. It was very easy to make the transition to an LDS membership at all three sites. All three are now linked to my FamilySearch account.

I also paid my tuition for my next Genealogy course, Introduction to Genealogical Research, at Salt Lake Community College today.

Yesterday I started an online course at The National Institute of Genealogical Studies which is entitled Google for the Wise Genealogist.

Tomorrow I am going to start a 4-week class on Roots Magic software at the Riverton FamilySearch Library taught by Ron Ray.

It is full steam ahead for genealogy and family history in my life.
