After over a year of Beta testing Family Tree is now gone "Live" and it's Free!
What is 'Family Tree' - it is designed to be the one Global Family Tree that you and I and all our ancestors belong to.
Here's the official press release -
"We’re happy to report that Family Tree is now live on FamilySearch.org and is available to all users.
"This opens up the contribution, collaboration, editing, and sourcing tools of Family Tree to researchers — including potential family members — around the world.
"Here are some of the many exciting features of this new tool:
- Connect and collaborate with others on shared family lines
- Edit and delete incorrect data, including relationships
- Provide sources and links to online information that shows where you found family information
- Preserve family tree information for future generations
- Use Family Tree on behalf of someone else (helper)
You can also take advantage of the training website to view tutorials, access a user guide, and much more."
I just got home from the Friday night session of a Family History Conference. Very exciting stuff, more info to follow. I'm off to bed now!
