New FamilySearch update - 01 July 2009

Last night I was talking to my brother Randy, who happens to be a member of the stake presidency in Provo. He told me he had just tried to get on new FamilySearch and it let him register. I had not heard anything official regarding Provo family history consultants and priesthood leaders getting access, but I wasn't surprised either.

I looked on the New.FamilySearch.org Utah and Idaho Release - news and information page and found that all of the Utah/Idaho temple districts have at least some level of access. Below is a copy of what has been announced.

News and Updates

All members in the following temple districts have full access to the Web site:

  • Twin Falls Idaho
  • Monticello Utah
  • Rexburg Idaho
  • Manti Utah
  • Vernal Utah
  • Logan Utah

Family history leaders in the following temple districts have been sent the preparation notification. Click on the temple name to see the announced release date for each stake in the temple district.

Consultants in the following Utah and Idaho temple districts have been sent instructions to begin viewing the online training modules listed on the Prepare tab. These consultants may also begin using the new.familysearch.org Web site.

  • St. George Utah
  • Mount Timpanogos Utah
  • Bountiful Utah
  • Salt Lake Utah
  • Ogden Utah
  • Draper Utah
  • Idaho Falls Idaho
  • Jordan River Utah
  • Provo Utah
I have updated my New FamilySearch Roll-out spreadsheet to reflect these changes.

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