FamilySearch News From FGS
Posted by Diane

Day one of our Federation of Genealogical Societies conference in Knoxville, Tenn., started off bright and early with a FamilySearch-hosted breakfast to update the genealogy media on recent and upcoming changes to FamilySearch.

Most exciting are the developments on the FamilySearch beta site. Eventually, this site will seamlessly integrate all the FamilySearch tools that now live on different sites: the Record Search Pilot, Family History Library catalog, pedigree databases, FamilySearch Wiki, FamilySearch blog, online videos and other learning tools, “new” Family Search (the family tree feature that’s currently available to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) and others.

The Record Search Pilot and library catalog search (already on the beta site) are far more sophisticated than those on the Record Search Pilot site and FamilySearch, respectively.

According to FamilySearch product manager Robert Kehrer, all the records now on the pilot site will be searchable on the beta site within a month. FamilySearch isn’t big on giving launch dates, but Kehrer says some major updates to the beta site will take place by the end of the year, others will be ongoing.

FamilySearch beta eventually will replace the current FamilySearch site, whose technology doesn’t allow it to host all these useful tools. You can see what’s on the beta site so far at beta.familysearch.org.

In other FamilySearch news, FamilySearch is hosting a Rootstech conference Feb. 10-12 in Salt Lake City to bring together “technologists” and genealogists. The goal is to encourage innovation in genealogy. Ancestry.com, the New England Historic Genealogical Society and Brigham Young University also are sponsoring the conference.
