Having gathered records for over 100 years, they have the largest collection of family history records from around the world. You can read more about the organisation by clicking here.
Additionally, all records are free and there are many images of records available too.
When you first open the web page www.familysearch.org you will immediately see the search screen;
It is very easy to find indexed records quickly by using this search screen. However I urge everyone to take a tour of the entire website as there is so much more available.
The "Catalog" is very useful to let you know what is available. If you are unable to find a particular record, it may be because it is not available.
If you know dates, then you can also browse images. Scroll to the bottom of the home page then select the country you are interested in;
When you have the date of baptism, marriage or death of your ancestor, it is always a good idea to find the original image as a couple of times I have found that the date has been indexed incorrectly.

My tip: Make sure that you have a lot of time available as an hour can soon become two or three!
