4/24: It's Back: Family Tree signups for members is here: https://help.familysearch.org/help/viewdocument?documentId=113041&sliceId=SAL_Public&userQuery=access+family+tree
Not a Mormon? That's OK, just hang in there - by the end of the year it's access for all!
4/22: I just noticed they have suspended new sign ups for members for FamilyTree. I will update this article as new signups are enabled. This is a beta status and not yet fully ready to go.
It is not being promoted, but I noticed in training a rookie this week that she could access FamilyTree by merely going to FamilySearch.org and logging in. Here is a brief picture story of what you will see at this time. It is in beta and some features come and go in the process. But enjoy it as it is. Start adding documents by linking to them. The easiest way for most is to load them into a picture sharing site such as Flickr.
< Family Tree should be in the upper left.
