FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Findmypast Community Edition Now Available to U.S. Libraries
·         Findmypast, a global leader in family history, announces the availability of a library edition within the United States

·         Provides access for libraries, archives, and other organizations to billions of records from England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States

·         Free, no obligation, 90-day trial available

 
Salt Lake City – June 25, 2015

Findmypast, a global leader in family history, announced today the official release of their product for libraries and organizations in the United States. The Findmypast Library Edition gives library access to billions of records from Findmypast’s wide array of collections from the United States, Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, and other areas of the world. Collection highlights include:
·         Largest online collection of parish records from the United Kingdom

·         Exclusive access to the new PERiodical Source Index (now with images)

·         Most comprehensive Irish family history records in the world

 

Amongst the billions of records now available to library patrons is the new PERiodical Source Index (PERSI). PERSI, a popular tool used by genealogists, includes more than 2.5 million indexed entries from thousands of genealogical and local history publications. For the first time, images of articles have been included in the collection – with more being added on a regular basis.
 
“We are delighted to bring the best resource for British and Irish family history to America’s library market,” said Annelies van den Belt, CEO of Findmypast.
 
The Library Edition provides tools for patrons to work in tandem with a library’s subscription and at home. Individual user accounts allow patrons to build their own family tree, save records from the library’s subscription, and continue working on their family tree.  Library patrons will also have access to Findmypast’s Hints, which aids in the discovery of records from their own family tree.
 
Librarians can contact librarysales@findmypast.com for further information, pricing, and to start a free 90-day free trial of the product.

This is the recording that didn't appear as it should earlier tonight. My apologies.

Looking at a US Federal Census Record, there are some people who I don't know living in this household. How will I handle this.

Thanks for expaining this FTM feature, and the report for it. I did not know about it before watching, and can't wait to start using it for my tree!

Hi +Russ Worthington  !  Our Virtual APG Chapter is interested in private HOA's.  I know about 1% of what you know about setting those up.  I could stumble through it and probably get it right, but to get the story "right from the horse's mouth," I think I found the proper YouTube video that you and +DearMYRTLE  had done early last year.  Inasmuch as Google changes the rules quite often, I wanted to know if this video contains good information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ9N0Gqgvtg  Thanks for your expertise and willingness to share!!

FTM2014 Questions  - 
 
When I'm in the search mode from my FTM2014 to the Ancestry site, I noticed media I marked private is showing. When I log into my Ancestry Account only the two public is showing. Should I be concerned that my  private media is displaying on my Ancestry search from my FTM2014 program?

I don't know if I saw your 5/5 message on FB. If I did, then I probably responded. Just was this message when Billy responded.

So, were are we on this "problem"?

Sorry, I don't do facebook for this type of work.

I could hold "Office Hours" and do this in this community with you. 

If you would and to do a Hangout "Office Hours" let me know when you would want to do that.

I also have a number of blog posts on this very topic. Since you are using FTM-3, its very close to FTM2014.
