Family Search Updates:
In the last few months, FS has implemented a new resource: Historical Images

The Resources are wonderful, but the search parameters and functions are intimidating to the novice FS Catalog Researcher.

The following will help you get a handle on information that could be of value to your search for Family data.
The chart linked here will be a decent guide.
To access the Historical Images, log into your FS Account: Click on Search, then at the top of the page: Historical Images:
You can begin with the search, but if you get lost or cannot figure it all out, then use the chart I have created to access the information.

Backtrack to Search, Catalog, and plug in the DGS Film number of interest from the Charts in the 'Fiche-Film' slot.
