New Features in Record Search at FamilySearch.org

The map in the Browse collections has had new features added – helpful new features!  Go to Search – Records and on the right of the screen that has Search Historical Records on the left there is Research by Location on the right.

You can click on the map of a country or area, select a province, or state or country and be taken to a search screens for that selection.

So  . . .  click on Canada on the map, select British Columbia – (Alberta is the only province in Canada with no record collections!) – then click on Start Researching British Columbia

From that search screen on the left is a link to see all the historical record collections for British Columbia – under Filter by Collection – Click on View all 13 collections – this will show you all the indexed collections and let you select which one(s) you want to search.

In the lower left is an area displaying any collections for British Columbia that have not been indexed which you can browse by images

On the right they have now added a link to the FH Catalog and the Research Wiki for British Columbia

These are helpful tools.  Try these steps for areas where you have research interests!
