More new developments on The Family History Guide, just in time for RootsTech 2020

The Family History Guide Overview

With the upcoming RootsTech 2020 in Salt Lake City, Utah, there has been a push at The Family History Guide to get ready for the big show. I recently posted about the updated home page and so the Overview Video had to also be updated. Many changes on the website result in cascading changes to all of the promotional material produced by the volunteers who maintain and update all this valuable genealogical training and research information. Another major development in the website is The Family History Guide Association Marketplace.

The Family History Guide website is sponsored by The Family History Guide Association a qualified 501(c)(3) corporation and donations are tax-deductible in the United States. This also means that The Family History Guide Association is a non-profit corporation. One way a non-profit organization can make enough money to keep operating and to promote its objectives is to have a marketplace. During the past few months, one of our volunteers has single-handedly put together our marketplace. It’s important to know that the Marketplace is a separate website from The Family History Guide. You won’t see ads in The Family History Guide for the Marketplace. There are two links to get you from the main website to the Marketplace: one is near the bottom of the Home page, and the other is in the Misc. menu (right side of the top menu). We want to keep The Family History Guide free and ad-free.

Of course, we will continue to welcome donations. See Donate to The Family History Guide

We will be at RootsTech 2020 is just a few days. Look for us there.
