Much has been written about Family Tree, the first of several site enhancements for FamilySearch, and the replacement for new.familysearch.org.

- Preserve family tree information for future generations
- Use Family Tree on behalf of someone else (helper)

From Dick Eastman about Family Tree - ( March 5, 2013)
"I just went to the Family Tree and found a record for my great-great-grandparents. My great-great-grandmother's first name was horribly mangled and her last name was missing. I was able to correct the information within a minute or two so that others may see the correct information in the future. This is the way that collaboration is supposed to work!"
