What is NFS?

Dear Ancestry Insider,

Hello, I enjoy your newsletter very much.

Guess I'm out of the loop here but what does this mean, "NFS Rollout News."

Thanks,
Diane in Michigan

Dear Diane,

Thank you for your support and sorry about the lack of context. I'm usually a titch better, but sometimes I forget.

You may be familiar with www.familysearch.org. There is a new version, New FamilySearch (NFS), that has a world pedigree to which anyone can add, correct, and contribute. FamilySearch is rolling NFS out first only to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (which owns FamilySearch). Later it will be rolled out to the general public. Inside the Church, the rollout has been organized by geographic areas called temple districts.

Genealogists inside the Church and out are watching this project with great anticipation, so I try to provide regular rollout updates. To see previous articles about the subject, come to my website,

Look for and click on New FamilySearch in the right margin.

Yours,
-- The Ancestry Insider
