Pedigree Resource File
A brief description of the PRF data.
The Pedigree Resource File is a growing database of lineage-linked names submitted by users of the FamilySearch Internet Genealogy Service. It is a reservoir of names to help individuals identify and link to their ancestors. Users can draw from this database for help with their family history research.
The Pedigree Resource File contains family information submitted by users of the FamilySearch. The information displayed in the file includes the notes and sources in the submission. No merges, corrections, or additions are made to the data submitted to the Pedigree Resource File.
