Sites and Research Helps
Two final tools which Research Guidance provides are Related Web sites and Research Helps. These are also found in the left-most column on the Search Strategies page.
An excellent tool in principle as it searches the large database of Web pages, including surname and family pages, which have been submitted to the FamilySearch site by visitors and FHL volunteers. Many of the large, well-known research sites are missing, however, and the smaller family history Web pages vary in the quality of their information. On the positive side, the Web sites are reviewed and are limited to genealogy/family history sites so you can at least be assured that you won't be wasting too much time wading through unrelated sites.
A list of related research outlines, glossaries, maps, word lists, etc., that may help you with your research. These are covered in greater detail in the Research Helps article.

From the bottom of the Research Helps screen for your location selection, you will also have the option to view "All Research Helps." This includes a complete list of the research outlines, worksheets, forms, collection indexes, how-tos and other research helps produced by the Family History Library. You can sort these by location, title, subject, or document type.
