The Family History Guide: Update on the Online Tracker

The Family History Guide has a detailed Online Tracker that provides a way for users to track their own progress using the website or for instructors to monitor the progress of their students.

Here is a summary of the new features from The Family History Guide Blog.
The free Online Tracker for The Family History Guide has been up and running for about 7 months, and it now has over 1,100 registered users. (It’s the only part of The Family History Guide that requires a username and password; the rest of the site does not.) With the Online Tracker, or “OLT” as we sometimes call it, you can keep track of your notes and progress in The Family History Guide in a secure online database.
Today we updated the OLT in a number of ways to help your user experience be even better. Here’s a list of the new enhancements, going from top to bottom of the screen:
  • Menu updates. Now the OLT has the same double-menu system as was recently introduced to the rest of the site.
  • Green bar update. The green menu bar now lets you go back to the Home page of the OLT or change your account settings.
  • Learning paths. There are now Project sections for FamilySearch, Ancestry, MyHeritage, and Findmypast.
  • Country Research. Regions and countries are now represented in the OLT. The North America region is finished, and other regions will be added in the next few weeks.
  • Footer updates. The OLT now uses the same new footer as the rest of the site.
Here’s a look at the new Learning Paths and Country Research sections. Active links in the OLT are green. And “coming soon” really does mean coming soon!
