Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Census abstracts are forms that you can fill out when you are doing research
with census records. They allow you to copy information from the census records
in an organized way, helping ensure that you don't miss any important information.
