FamilySearch Family Tree contains many duplicate records, but finding and resolving them is not as simple as it may sound. In these classes you'll learn how to find obvious and less obvious duplicates, how to tell if two records really really are duplicates, and how to merge duplicates.
After years on the sidelines, Kathryn Grant began doing family history and discovered that she loved it. Her specialty is helping new family historians find success—and maybe even avoid some of the mistakes she's made. Kathryn teaches Sunday classes and webinars for the BYU Family History Library. and also presents at the Riverton FamilySearch Library Saturday Seminars and other family history events. Her column on family history ran in the Nauvoo Times for about a year and is still available online at Click Here . In addition, she is a regular contributor to the FamilySearch blog . Kathryn works as a technical writer and instructional designer with a focus on usability and process improvement. Besides family history, she loves uplifting music, thought-provoking books, and fresh raspberries. She is the daughter of Jay and Marilyn Grant who many of us know as the Directors of the Family History Training Center in Orem Utah that so many Family History Missionaries went through. Jay also taught many classes for our UVTAGG meetings.
