So what has been "lost" lately on FamilySearch.org? One example is the post I wrote recently about the Reference Guide to Family Tree. So far, I found the updated Guide once, but have not been able to duplicate my return journey. So far the only link I can find to the Guide is in a Help Center document entitled "Getting started using Family Tree." Just to assist you in finding the Reference Guide, here is the link again.
Another of the "lost" parts of FamilySearch.org is the "Learning Center." In this case, this particular resource consists of hundreds of videos on various topics. The page used to be prominently available, but now has moved off into obscurity under a link from the "Get Help" option in the upper right-hand corner of the startup page. It is called the "Learning Center Video Courses" and the page is essentially the same as it was before the whole website was redesigned.
OK, no post about obscurity would be complete without a treasure hunt. Here is screen shot of a FamilySearch.org page. See if you can figure out where it is on the website and how you get there from the startup page. I am not going to give you any hints or include a link, but this is a currently active and available page on FamilySearch.org:
Here is another page that is linked to the one above. Have you seen this before? Do you know how to get to this page? If you do, you score high on the familiarity with FamilySearch.org tally sheet:
Did you know that the FamilySearch.org website was in several different languages? See the link at the bottom of the startup page for a list.
Now finally, by going down one long hallway, we find the "Community-powered support for FamilySearch." This page is actually on a different website but can be reached through a series of links from FamilySearch.org. Here is a screenshot:
If you haven't guessed by now, you might begin to realize that FamilySearch.org is a really big website with a gigantic number of resources. Click around and see what else is hiding behind those mansion doors.
