The online family database FamilySearch Family Tree (FSFT) added record hints about a month ago but I only recently began seeing the hints for members of my family.

FamilySearch Family Tree now on the FamilySearch Front Page

FamilySearch Family Tree – Still Coming

Over the last few weeks I have been writing about the genealogy database on FamilySearch called Family Tree (FSFT). The FSFT team hasn’t finished everything that they want to do with this complicated on-line system. One main thing that isn’t available is to print out either a family tree or family group sheet.

Through the early stages of FamilySearch Family Tree (FSFT) people kept asking for the ability to upload new family records using GEDCOM.
