"What's New"
What's New Resources will be found here 

Family Search Update:
In the last few months, FS has implemented a new resource: Historical Images

The Resources are wonderful, but the search parameters and functions are intimidating to the novice FS Catalog Researcher.

So...
The following will help you get a handle on information that could be of value to your search for Family data.

These charts will be your guide:

Chart 1 has the following Resources:
Biographies, Birth & Death Records, Burial Cards,
Declaration of Intent, Naturalization Petitions & Final Papers
Military Muster Rolls
[Note: Draft Registrations are not Listed, though they are in the Historical Images too]
Cemetery Records, Directories & Grave Registrations

Chart 2 has Tax Lists: 1866 > 1901

To access the Historical Images, log into your FS Account: Click on Search, then at the top of the page: Historical Images:
You can begin with the search, but if you get lost or cannot figure it all out, then use the charts I have created to access the information.

So...Then...
Backtrack to Search, Catalog, and plug in the DGS Film number of interest from the Chart in the 'Fiche-Film' slot.

Most of the Digital Films have indexes.
If there is no index, investigate to determine if the records were filmed in Chronological Order as many times they are.
