      FamilySearch
      http://www.familysearch.org/

      Although still in beta phase, this impressive new genealogical resource
      from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the Mormons) has
      immediately received the attention and praise of genealogical researchers.
      The providers have not publicly stated whether the site will offer access
      to the entirety of their 2 billion name genealogical record repository, but
      it already contains over 300 million names in two indexes, searchable by
      ancestor name. Users may also search a host of other genealogy Websites and
      the site's own SourceGuide of research outlines by keyword. In addition,
      the site offers a large collection of browseable and searchable categories
      of genealogical research sites, such as Census and Lists, Land and
      Property, Migration, Military, Vital Records, and others. Registered users
      can collaborate with others working on similar projects, add Websites, and
      have their research preserved in _The Pedigree Resource File_. While the
      Internet already holds a multitude of family research sites, when it is
      complete, FamilySearch will almost certainly be regarded as the first and
      most comprehensive place to begin a search for one's ancestors.
