You have millions of records to search that are not in the search engine. Here are some clever tricks to view them.
It’s an often overlooked fact that a vast amount of FamilySearch’s collections cannot be found via the search on their site. Millions of free family history records are waiting to be discovered but have not yet been indexed and are, therefore, some what hard to find. These records are invaluable tools for genealogists and cover a wide range of locales and time periods so we thought we’d offer a quick rundown on how to access them.
But first a note about searching collections individually.
One of the most commonly overlooked tactics for successfully locating ancestors in online databases is to search collections individually. It’s natural to want to check a site’s entire database with one quick search–and many places do make this incredibly easy and quite accurate–but the truth is, no search function is perfect. Especially when looking for an ancestor with a common name, searching all resources at one time may mean some results are never returned or that certain results get over looked. It happens all of the time.
So, whether you’re searching through records on FamilySearch or another large site, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the additional details you can uncover by searching collections individually. It might take some digging to find the section you need to complete the needed search, but it will likely be well worth your time.

News from familysearch.org regarding their photo duplication services.
Photo duplication Services will be discontinued as of December 5, 2014. As of this date, existing orders will be completed, but new orders will not be accepted.
As more microfilm and books are digitized and added to FamilySearch.org, and more links are made available to partner sites that already have this information digitized, the need for photoduplication will decrease. FamilySearch is attempting to digitize as many resources as possible and make these available online. If the film or book has been digitized, you can print your own copies directly from the web site, if printing the image is not restricted by the copyright holder.
To find the resources that are digitzed, please visit the FamilySearch Catalog at: https://familysearch.org/catalog-search (You can also go to familysearch.org, select Search, then Catalog.) Also available on the Catalog page is a link to OCLC WorldCat. WorldCat can help you find books and other resources in over 10,000 local libraries.
