What is Family Tree

The Family Tree is a new approach to researching and organizing your family history that focuses on enhanced data accuracy through collaboration and sourcing. It takes the best features of new.FamilySearch and adds many useful functions. It looks similar, but it does much more and will enable you to enjoy family history in new ways. Once all of the features are in place, the Family Tree will replace new.FamilySearch and will be freely and publically available to people around the world.
