Family Editing Possible at Family Tree


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 (one 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 forNew.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!
