Standard Finder is a little known resource on FamilySearch. Genealogical researchers are constantly wondering if they are listing their data with the standard name, date and place format. We want our naming conventions to either match the recognized standard or at least a close variation of it but how do we find those standards?
The Standard Finder solves our questions with a few clicks. You’ll need to click on the images below to see the full screen captures from the Standard Finder site. They contain too much information to be portrayed in snippets or reduced size.
