About Findmypast's new family tree [beta]

(select each question to see more..)

Findmypast's new tree is a product that's being created to help users, both new and experienced, collaborate with others to discover more about their family. For novices, the new tree allows you to tap into research done by others on your ancestors instead of going it alone. For experienced users, Findmypast's new tree allows families (including distant cousins) to contribute their information and research, discuss, debate and resolve questions about their family.

Findmypast's new tree is in beta at this time. Users can search for ancestors in Findmypast's new global tree today and will soon be able to add new details and update existing information. Findmypast anticipates an official product launch later this year.

Users who have, and prefer, a Findmypast private tree can continue to use that feature. Users with Findmypast private trees will be able to migrate their tree(s) to the global tree in the future if they wish.

Findmypast has selected FamilySearch, curators of the largest shared tree in the world with 1.2 billion unique ancestor names, as the cornerstone of this initiative.

Ancestry's OneWorldTree was largely a computer-generated tree, whereas Findmypast's new product is based on the FamilySearch family tree, which is curated by a vibrant community of users.

Findmypast's new family tree is in beta at this time. Our intent is to preview our direction for users so that they can provide feedback and input to enhance the new tree as we take it forward.
