Improving family history searching

This posted was stimulated by the article What Do Researchers Need?  by Jody L. DeRidder and Kathryn G. Matheny in the July/August 2014 issue of D-Lib Magazine

Research using 11 faculty researchers from a variety of disciplines at the University of Alabama as subjects found, among many other conclusions, that "even experienced researchers now need training in searching." How well does this finding, and perhaps the others, apply to family history researchers?

Thinking about your use of the genealogy-focused websites Ancestry, FamilySearch and findmypast, please respond to the survey at https://survey.zohopublic.com/zs/HJCNSi.

Thank you.
