new.familysearch.org Is Now Read Only

Large FamilySearch logo.

The next step to fully implement FamilySearch Family Tree on FamilySearch.org is to change new.familysearch.org to read-only status. This milestone occurred on December 18, 2013.

Users can still view information on new.familysearch.org, but users can no longer edit or change information.

Users have many reasons to switch from new.familysearch.org to FamilySearch Family Tree. They can:

  1. Correct information about ancestors and relationships.
  2. Find valuable records for any ancestor, right from the person page.
  3. Add sources to ancestors with a few simple mouse clicks.
  4. Add photos, documents, and stories to ancestors.
  5. Print fan charts, pedigrees, and family group records.
