FamilySearch Family Tree adds direct searching in partner sites
FamilySearch.org Family Tree adds direct searching from your ancestors in the Family Tree to the partner websites. You have to be careful with the results and evaluate each suggested source carefully. The searches also assume that the information in the Family Tree is correct. This type of searching is not quite as accurate as letting the programs suggest record hints.
I suspect, and will verify this, that they will only work if you are already registered with an LDS account. However, they may allow searches but require you to log in to see the results. I cannot tell because I have an LDS account.
Here is a screenshot of what happens when I search using Ancestry.com.
I have to go to church and then to the BYU classes, so more later.
