New FamilySearch Roll-out Update

I figured it was time again to check in with my source to see what was happening with the new FamilySearch Roll-out. Here is their response.

I’ve been thinking that I needed to send you an update. I can’t remember what I sent you last so some of this may be a repeat.

The following temple district are now active on new FamilySearch:

Twin Falls – April 14

Monticello – April 21

Rexburg – May 5

Manti – May 12

Vernal – May 12

The Logan district is official in the preparation mode. They received an official announcement last Friday, indicating that they should begin preparing.

The registered consultants in the St George district have been invited to complete a basic new FamilySearch course. By completing the course, they will be given early access into new FamilySearch but the St George district is not officially in preparation mode.

That’s what I can tell you at this time.

We have such a short list of temple districts that need to be rolled-out now. There are 10 along the Wasatch Front and 5 international. Here's the short list.
  • Idaho Falls, ID
  • Boise, ID
  • Ogden, UT
  • Bountiful, UT
  • Salt Lake City, UT
  • Jordan River, UT
  • Draper, UT
  • Mt. Timpanogos, UT
  • Provo, UT
  • St. George, UT
  • Tokyo, Japan
  • Fukuoka, Japan
  • Seoul, Korea
  • Taipei, Taiwan
  • Hong Kong, China
The rumor mill is alive an well. Here are the following ones I have heard regarding the Utah/Idaho roll-out.
  1. Mt. Timp. is going to get a card reader after they close on Jun 8 for cleaning. All the temples are slowly getting scanners.
  2. Don Anderson mentioned in St. George that NFS is going on board by regions of stakes and they will have a certain number of FHCs before they go live. Stakes will have to be prepared before going on.
You can see a list of the Utah/Idaho Release on the register page for consultants at

I have updated my "New FamilySearch Roll-out" spreadsheet.

See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
