FMP update

I heard a rumour that FMP was being taken over by Family Search.org, so on their usual Friday afternoon broadcast on FB, I asked that question and this is the reply they sent me

"Hi Amanda. Findmypast has selected FamilySearch, curators of the largest shared tree in the world with 1.2 billion unique ancestor names, as partners with our new Family Tree. You can find more information at the following page - https://www.findmypast.co.uk/worldtree"

So does this mean any trees we have on FMP are to be made public??

Re: FMP update

As I understand it, you are invited to join the Global Family Tree. Invited, is the word.
I would think, if your tree is private, you could open it up to view and add to the global tree.
Have you asked them about being a private tree, and if it will remain that way.

QUOTE; Users who have, and prefer, a Findmypast private tree can continue to use that feature. Users with Findmypast private trees will be able to migrate their tree(s) to the global tree in the future if they wish.

Re: FMP update

I have had a subscription with Ancestry for years and the other day,researching someone I was directed to another site which turned out to be FMP for a record I was looking for.There didn't seem to be a way of adding info to my tree on Ancestry.

Re: FMP update

I thought Familysearch had been taken over by Ancestry a few years back. It must be Familysearch that wants FMP ,because they are Church oriented.

Yes that's the rumour I heard, it went as far as to say Family Search would make everything free, but I don't see that happening. FMP say that Family Search is a partner, I think we will have to play a wait and see game. I have found some of my family already on the World tree, so although I didn't add them someone else has.

Re: FMP update

Years ago I found some of my 17c Adamsons from Rothwell Parish had been made LDS. Somebody belonging to the church will do this.

Re: FMP update

I don't think it is a coincidence that the person running Ancestry is based in Utah. My Dau.passed throught Salt lake City a few years back and wondered what the large building were about. You must have a near spotless tree to advance in LDS.

I do no when I was in Ancestry FB and trying to get a gedcom for 3mths ,at one point I got fed up and deleted my tree ,but they asked if I wanted it back on Ancestry so I went with that ,but I still had to delete my tree without a gedcom. I thought I was safe as yrs ago there was a tree 52000+
Now I think it was because they coundn't get a gedcom.

Besides the extensive number of records, family tree names, and other resources, Ancestry also has many features that allow for seamless integration between Ancestry and FamilySearch, helping you more effectively find your ancestors.
