Re: [FHCNET] The future of Family History Centers
- Because of copyright issues, not everything the church has can be put
on the public FamilySearch web site. This includes new stuff being
digitized now. However, many thing that can't be placed on the web
for free, will be available in the FHC for free.
As it stands now, FHCs have access to portions of Ancestry.com,
Hearitige Quest, World Vital Records, Godfrey Memorial Library, and
Footnote.com. In addition, many pay-for programs will be available
for use in the FHC such as PAFInsight (soon to be FamilyInsight),
PAFWiz, RootMagic, and many others.
