New Family Tree
By Renee Zamora

Several weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a private viewing of FamilySearch’s new feature Family Tree. On 29 Dec. 2005 beta testing officially began, which I am happily now a beta tester.

Like all of the LDS’ undertakings this new feature was designed for LDS members to help them do temple work for their deceased ancestors. It just so happens that everyone else benefits from their efforts. Family Tree will have a gradual release. It will be rolled out by temple districts. If you are interested in finding out what temple districts are, and what temples are for; you can find information on it at http://www.lds.org under temples.

We have all experienced the frustrations of the current FamilySearch website at http://www.familysearch.org. You have the International Genealogical Index (IGI), Ancestral File (AF) and Pedigree Resource File (PRF). Some of the problems are the lack of being able to make corrections, additions, merges or link-up those records. With FamilySearch’s new feature, Family Tree, those problems have now been addressed.Read more...Collapse )
