TRAINING PAGE: HOW TO FIND MORE FAMILY MEMBERS

FAMILY SEARCH

ROLE: WIREFRAMES, VISUAL DESIGN, MOCKUPS and PROTOTYPING

Project

Familysearch.org needed a mini training site that would be accessed through LDS.org. There was a need to teach their users how to find a family member's name and what to do once they have found one. There was also a need for the site to be compelling enough to drive more people to their main site. 

Target Audience

New users of Familysearch.org and member's of the LDS church who are interested in genealogy and using the Family Search site but felt overwhelmed with how and where to start.

Solution

Focused on making the site interactive and easy to follow. The content was geared toward individuals who find themselves in 1 of 4 situation. Users could find the situation they were in and follow the steps to help them add names to their tree and what to do after that. This training piece helped increase user awareness and Family Search saw an increase in users being able to find and use their ancestor's names for various church purposes.


Wireframes and Mockups

Worked with instructional designers to create content after white boarding and brain storming with the UX Team. Created initial wireframes and mockups. Many revisions to content were made and then finalized.


Rapid In Browser Prototyping with HTML/CSS and Javascript

Designed graphics and images for the site and then developed a prototype using twitter bootstrap for quick development. User testing was used and many iterations were made before the development team touched it.
