This morning I uploaded "Family Tree, for the Experienced New FamilySearch User" to my website,, where it is available for free download.

Three years ago, I uploaded "How To Use New FamilySearch Correctly" to the website, not knowing whether anyone would notice it. Remarkably, over 50,000 LDS genealogists have downloaded the manual. I have received over 1,000 emails from: FamilySearch Support Missionaries, who said they were trained on the manual; Family History Center Directors, who are using it to teach nFS at their FHC's; Family History Consultants, who are using it to teach nFS in their wards; and other appreciative users from all over the world (including an incredibly sweet sister in Fiji, whose tender email tugged at my heart strings!).

FamilySearch is currently developing Family Tree, a new interface which will replace New FamilySearch at the end of this year. But before you have a heart attack, Family Tree operates on the nFS database, so you won't need to re-enter your data.

Family Tree allows you to:
1) correct erroneous data submitted by other patrons, and
2) link sources into your ancestors' Family Tree records (including documents, photos, and videos you have at home).

My manual, which is 48 pages in length, explains how to do these things in an organized, step-by-step method, so you use your time efficiently.

Members can start using Family Tree now, and I recommend that knowledgeable users do so.

Thanks for getting the word out!
