      NEWS FROM THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS!!
      New Family History Workbook and Research Guides Simplify Process 16
      October 2001

      SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH — The Family History Library of The Church of
      Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced today the release of two
      new research products that will help family history enthusiasts
      succeed in their quest to learn about their ancestors. A new
      introductory workbook, How Do I Start My Family History?, and a new
      line of research guides, Finding Records of Your Ancestors, feature
      easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, colorful graphics and
      tear-out worksheets. <br>
      How Do I Start My Family History? is a free workbook designed to help
      those just beginning to gather and organize their family's genealogy.
      It replaces the library's popular booklet Where Do I Start? Users will
      find simple instructions, examples and 8.5-by-11-inch removable
      pedigree and family group worksheets to help them capture what they
      already know about their families. <br>

      Finding Records of Your Ancestors, Part A: Denmark, 1834 to 1900 is
      the first in a new series of publications that represents a new
      direction for the library. The guides simplify the research process to
      increase the probability of success. They are designed for those who
      have already gathered some information from their home and family,
      organized what they have on pedigree and family group forms like those
      found in How Do I Start My Family History? and are ready to search
      public records. <br>

      Finding Records of Your Ancestors guides are geared toward people who
      have little genealogical experience and may not have time to do
      extensive research. In an inviting workbook style, Part A: Denmark
      colorfully outlines the steps and tools needed to find one's Danish
      ancestors. Users will learn where to start, how to find and use Danish
      records, and what unique elements to look for in the records. The
      8.5-by-11-inch booklets are more visual and user friendly than other
      family history how-to publications. <br>

      The guide for Denmark is divided into two parts. Finding Records of
      Your Ancestors, Part A: Denmark, 1834 to 1900 covers the period from
      1834 to 1900. Part B: Denmark, available in 2002, will cover
      additional time periods and research strategies. Another planned
      publication will help researchers read Danish records. <br>

      The guide explains different types of records in Denmark and instructs
      the user on when and how to use specific records. A real-life case
      study allows readers to see for themselves how the research process
      works. Expert search tips, including tips on how to use the Family
      History Library catalog, are included. Also included are maps,
      historical time lines, and background on Danish naming customs. Beyond
      outlining a strategy for getting started, the guide offers
      instructions on more advanced research, including addresses and Web
      sites for more information.
      Additional guides in the Finding Records of Your Ancestors series will
      be published in 2002. Research guides are being prepared for the
      British Isles, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy,
      Japan, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland (for
      German language records). Additional guides will follow, including
      research assistance for African-Americans, American Indians and
      Pacific Islanders. <br>

      centers worldwide and can be ordered by calling toll free
      1-800-537-5971 or on the Internet at www.familysearch.org. How Do I
