FamilySearch.org to Redesign Site to Include Same-Sex Relationships

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

FamilySearch.org released a statement yesterday announcing the start of a website redesign that will allow users to record same-sex relationships on their family tree. The system updates will require time and are expected to be launched in 2019. The full statement reads:

The goal of FamilySearch.org is to capture, store, and provide records and an accurate genealogy that represents past, present, and future families of the world. To support this goal, same-sex relationships, including same-sex parents and same-sex couples, will be provided in FamilySearch Family Tree. Several systems that surround Family Tree, such as tree and record searching, must be significantly redesigned to support same-sex relationships before Family Tree can release this capability. We expect to finish this work by 2019. Following this work, the FamilySearch Family Tree application can then allow same-sex information to be recorded. We appreciate your patience and desire to preserve the world’s genealogy in Family Tree.

FamilySearch.org is a nonprofit family history organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints dedicated to connecting families across generations by providing free research data and resources.
