NEW FamilySearch Country Pages

FamilySearch is beginning to add Country Pages to help you research your ancestors.

“FamilySearch’s country pages provide resources for those seeking to learn more about their heritage across the globe. Each page contains information that teaches where your family comes from, gives resources to help you start your research, and provides links to FamilySearch’s records collections for that country.”

Click here to learn all about this. I am sure they will be adding more countries in the future. I would love to hear how this has helped you in your research.
