The Church is experimenting with many new internet sites. It is difficult to keep up. Another new search site for family history is: http://www.histfam.familysearch.org
This site promotes some specific resources. It contains many community trees, and some oral history databases. It is searchable.
Oral Genealogies are spoken lineage-linked genealogies from localities throughout the world. Many localities have no written records and oral genealogies may be the only records available for genealogical research.
Check out all the links from the home page to investigate the possibilities here.
http://www.blog.familysearch.org This site contains links to random Family History information, like a family history newsletter. It contains new updates as to what the Church is doing in this area.
To be up-to-date on the latest family history technologies that aren’t ready for prime time, stay tuned to: http://labs.familysearch.org. To be simply amazed, check out the “Life Browser Prototype”.
