FamilySearch Help Center

FamilySearch Help Center more than New FamilySearch
Users of the New FamilySearch program are hopefully familiar with the program's Help Center. But it is important to realize that the Help Center is more than just assistance to New FamilySearch. The Help Center includes information on all of the family history products products from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Here is a list of the programs supported:
Ancestral File
FH Library Catalog
FamilySearch 2.27
FamilySearch Internet
Family Tree
Freedman's Bank Records
Mormon Immigration Index
New FamilySearch
PAF (Personal Ancestral File)
PAF Companion
Pedigree Resource File
Record Search
Resource File Viewer
Vital Records
Web conferencing tools
Some of the programs require purchase or download of the program, such as Personal Ancestral File and some have been discontinued, such as TempleReady. Other of the programs requires registration, like New FamilySearch and are available only to church members. However, presently if you have no access to the New FamilySearch program, you cannot get to the Help Center.
