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.
