“The Latest & Greatest in Family Search Photos &Stories”

Tim Cross

Categories: LDS, O

Talk Abstract:
Tim is currently responsible for FamilySearch Family Tree Photos and Stories which now includes Documents. Pictures and stories of our ancestors help us know them much more than just knowing their dates and places. For those who have uploaded scanned documents, e.g. birth certificates, into the Photos section, there is now an easy way to move them into the Documents section and that’s probably the reason that the Documents section is with the Photos now. This is still in beta test, so we can hope that eventually the Documents section will be with the Sources section where you would expect to find it. The file size limit has also been increased recently for uploaded files and you can now upload pdf’s (Portable Document Format). Family Tree has been making good strides from when it started a couple of years ago.
