This Lesson guide contains written STEPS interspersed with PICTURES that show how to find and add Family Search indexed records to a person in Family Tree.

How to best use the "Attaching FS Records to Family Tree Using the Source Linker" Guide[edit | edit source]
This lesson guide can be used individually, in a one-on-one mentoring session or in a class situation. It is designed to provide beginner and intermediate level FT users with a hands-on practical experience in putting INDEXED Family Search documents as sources in their Family Tree.
The lesson guide is found to be most successful in enabling users to do the task independently when it is part of a "Model with Steps;Do with Steps" approach. First the teacher/mentor perform the Steps in their own FT or in the beta.familysearch.org account... at the same time drawing attention to the specific directions on the handout. After that, the participant does the task in their Tree by following the same Steps. Thus, by the end of the lesson, they have read through the Steps TWICE and performed the task ONCE. Retaining a copy of the Guide for reference, they can more readily repeat the task thereafter.
