Summary
"This site, maintained by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, is a well-known and important source for most genealogists. The cleanly designed home page offers three search methods: Ancestor Search, which allows you to search for a person's name; Keyword Search, a subject search on the Web and in the SourceGuide; and Custom Search, where you can limit your search to any of the specific files offered. The site also provides a secure archive and links to mailing lists where those researching the same family lines can discuss their research. For those seeking further information, there is a directory of Family History Centers in the United States and an online store offering helpful tools, publications, software, and supplies"--"Best Free Reference Web Sites 2000."
