Regular users of FamilySearch may notice something different when they log in: we’ve changed things up a bit.
A new logged-in design makes your time on FamilySearch more about you. You’ll see a history of what you have done lately, you’ll find hints about your ancestors we may have found in historical records, and you’ll discover the latest photos and stories added by your relatives. The new design has been rolled out to most users, and all users should see it within the next few weeks.
The page is split in two: the left side is focused on inspiration while the right side provides tools and insights into your family history journey. Let’s take a look at each section.
The left side of the new design helps you better understand your role in connecting your family’s generations. Check this section for inspirational videos, new tools, and an automatically updated feed that shows photos, stories, and documents about your ancestors that have recently been added by other users.
The right side of the new design focuses on the active part of your family history journey. Here you’ll find your latest recommended tasks, a history of recently visited ancestors, and a simple (and yet strangely fun) to-do list to help you keep track of what you want to accomplish with your family history.
