Upadate To The My Family Booklet Coming Soon

I have thought it was a good idea to produce the My Family Booklet. I thought that there was a definite place for it. Now the data can be entered online which increases the application.
Tuesday, July 1st (possibly delayed) – Upgrade to website to enter data from “My Family” booklet

Updates to the website pages for patrons (and others like consultants) to enter information they had previously written into the “My Family” booklet.  The access to this portion of the website will be like it is today where they will go to familysearch.org and click Family Booklet.


Then they will have the options to get into the specific pages to enter the data from the booklet. The “Fill in an online version” is for a patron who is doing it themselves.  The “Help others preserve their information” is for a consultant or another patron who will be helping someone else put the information from the booklet into the system.
Ultimately, you will get to the first entry screen which will be similar to the following with some information already filled in that it found in Family Tree:

If you have comments, questions, or concerns regarding the updates, please click Have Feedback as shown below and it will go directly to the engineers programming this feature:
