Family Tree[edit | edit source]
Family Tree replaces New Family Tree. Family Tree is an updated approach to organizing and recording your genealogy online. It merges the best features and data from new.FamilySearch and adds powerful tools for data accuracy, usability, and collaboration. Family Tree development is ongoing and aggressive, so you can expect frequent updates, including additional training materials.
Family Tree is a new way to work together to do genealogy. The information that is stored in Family Tree is similar to what is in new.familysearch.org, but there are some differences that are intended to help Family Tree become the most accurate representation of an ancestral line.
FamilySearch/Family Tree is continually changing and evolving. Check back often to learn of the new information added.
