“FamilySearch Family Tree for Influencers”

Robert Raymond

Categories: LDS, RT

Talk Abstract:
FamilySearch Family Tree is an important undertaking. You are building something bigger than yourself. While genealogists within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints regularly use FamilySearch Family Tree, non-genealogists in the Church and genealogists outside the Church do not. As an influencer, you might wish you could convince more knowledgeable genealogists to use the Tree more often (and less knowledgeable genealogists to use it less)! Influencers need a new mindset. See contributions by other influential genealogists and learn how they dissuade unwanted changes. Learn some focus areas for your time and how to apply genealogical standards.
