It’s time for a new New FamilySearch (NFS) roll out map and I’ve taken the opportunity to redefine the meaning of the colors. Green dots are unchanged, temple districts where all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have access to NFS.
The old color scheme reflected the old roll out method where consultants obtained access just before temples and stake members. The new color scheme reflects the new practice of rolling out stake by stake. Red dotes indicate temple districts where no stakes have access. The yellow dots, Provo and Idaho Falls, are the districts where roll outs to stakes are occurring. Green dots indicate districts where all stakes have access.
It’s been a long time since the last map update. The changes since then (ignoring the color scheme change):
- St. George went from yellow to green. This completes all non-Wasatch front Utah temples.
- Idaho Falls went from red to yellow. When it goes green next Monday it will complete all Idaho temples.
- Provo went from red to yellow indicating that ten stakes will go live next Monday. These will be the first Wasatch Front stakes since the Highland Utah Stake received access back on 6 September 2007. (I imagine for bragging rights, the Provo stakes will adopt the position that Highland doesn’t count. :-)
- Oquirrh went from purple (under construction) to red.
