Learning "Family Tree"

Since New. famillySearch.org has migrated to FamilySearch.org and changed its identity to "FamilyTree", we have an opportunity to learn more techniques about using it. 
To learn how edit relationships go to familysearch.org/tree-training, log in and go down to the bottom of the page to the webinars and view the one on editing relationships. The other webinars are also excellent, as well as the videos and documents that are available.

Try FamilySearch Family Tree


Family Tree is an upgrade from new.FamilySearch that combines the best features and data from new.FamilySearch and adds powerful tools for data accuracy, usability and collaboration. Many tools in nFS have now been disabled as the transition is made (separate, combine, possible duplicates, etc.). Now is the time to make the switch, if you haven't already. Although change is sometimes difficult, I think you'll be pleased once you give it a try! If you have questions you'll find excellent online training at this link
