New FamilySearch Update for Earth Day 2008

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I'd recycle some old New FamilySearch (NFS) rollout rumors. But then some new ones came in, so I won't have to. Here's the news and the new rumors.

Dallas Texas, Melbourne Australia and Perth Australia all went live today, 22-Apr-2008.

Brisbane Australia is currently closed for cleaning. While closed they will be upgraded to NFS. They will reopen on 7-May-2008.

Halifax Nova Scotia has been told they will go live at the end of May. I'm guessing 27-May-2008.

The Hague, Netherlands received their 4 month notification on 21-Apr-2008. Nauvoo Illinois will also go live in 4 month, placing them about Aug-2008. From this we can infer that all of the temples that have already been announced will be live before then. That is, unless they are being held until the I.O.U.S. problem is fixed.

No news about Seattle as of 21-Apr-2008.

Want to see when your area will get NFS? I've filled in my guesses for over 25 temples that were in transition at the time of the rollout hold. See the latest map and tables at Temple Districts Using New FamilySearch.

  1. What? Nada in Pennsylvania? I guess the Obama/Clinton donnybrook takes precedence, eh?

    Nice report. Thanks for the update.
