Big News Family Editing Comes to FamilySearch Family Tree
 
FamilySearch is a moving target. No matter what you knew about it yesterday, you  need to look at it today to see what is going on. Here is a summary of the different parts of FamilySearch and the latest news:   

Family Tree is part of the biggest change being made to the FamilySearch.org website. Good news and waiting. Family Tree is the replacement for New.FamilySearch.org.  There are a series of incremental changes going on nearly constantly. For example, today I found that 
  • marriage dates can be edited or deleted. 
  • Family relationships can also be edited, such as biological, adopted, step etc. 
  • You can also change the parents of a child. 
  • You can also add a source directly to a marriage and a child relationship. 
  • In short, all of the incorrect family relationships in New.FamilySearch.org can now be edited in Family Tree. 
  • You can also add people to the database. 
I hope you realize how big this really is!!!  Get to work and correct your family!  This program isopen to anyone who wants to register (or who has already registered) by clicking on the Help menu and reading the instructions concerning how to sign into the program.
