Your goal will determine the order you use these sections (Patsy 5/23/13)
What would I zero in on and what would I find in my way. Unique little things that locals know. If I had never done any research, I would read, but bounce right off. Couldn't see how to differentiate between great nuggets and "filler."
Beef up the FSL ordering, since photodup is much better now than before. emphasize microfilm. AdkinsWH 13:31, 22 May 2013 (UTC) Perhaps disconnect Internet and focus first on local resources. How do I get this book. Steps - open another tab, go to worldcat, will show nearby libs that have the book. Then call local lib and get through ILL.
To physically search, or get to records that are not digitized -- two pages. Can I send a friend -- related only or other restrictions. Hold the record in your hand, Small bites of info. the FSL links, use a template box -- fewest possible words rather than these links. (Lise 5/22/13)

- Category:Obtain and Search the Records - Very important page to update. Perhaps this is the core page, rather than the one I'm creating records vs book media Is there something the family has? adapt the Obtain the Records page? Probably not, since it is one of the published, highly edited ones.
Note: include WorldCat, Google Books, Inter-library loan, FHC's WorldCat. See what books are near your zip code (About) Unless there is a good explanation, people can't really use it easily Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche Community Meeting Agenda 6 October 2009 has discussion on worldcat, inter-library loan, etc. FamilySearch Wiki:Contributors Meeting 27 September 2012 also.

There is value in getting people to the FHLC, particularly due to its quirkiness. Not that they are listed in the FSL, but that there are records there that can be ordered to a FSC - available through other means. Photodup - they have added a line that lets Lise get access. Not have to go through an FSC. No browse and look, only lookup. Email the request and they would respond with a digital copy. (Cook county withdrew the images).
