What is Family Pursuit?

Family Pursuit enables families to work together on their family history by providing a centralized online database that each family member can directly access. This online database is a private and secure family tree website packed with features that enable family members to maintain an up-to-date and accurate genealogy database, coordinate and document research efforts, upload documents and photos, and monitor temple ordinance completion. Family Pursuit's intuitive drag and drop technology allows family members to easily transfer information between their family tree website and New FamilySearch for temple ordinance completion. Family Pursuit's unique wiki-based approach enables family members to monitor the entire database and easily undo mistakes. An unlimited number of family members can be invited to join a family tree and each family member receives his/her own login.

Why do I need Family Pursuit if I'm already using New FamilySearch?

New FamilySearch is a massive lineage linked database which includes records that FamilySearch has collected over many years. A primary focus of New FamilySearch is to reduce ordinance duplication and provide a means to submit new names for ordinance completion. In addition, New FamilySearch enables users to see what others have contributed to the global family tree. Unfortunately, not all of this information is accurate and most of the innacurate data cannot be corrected.

Family Pursuit is working with FamilySearch to provide effective tools for families to collaborate on their genealogy and simultaneously coordinate temple ordinance completion through New FamilySearch. With a Family Pursuit Family Tree Website you can work closely with family members in a private database that is accurate, then using the direct New FamilySearch connection, you can selectively transfer information between your clean Family Pursuit database and New FamilySearch. This allows you to collaborate with family members in researching your genealogy and at the same time coordinate temple work by synchronizing with New FamilySearch.

In addition, Family Pursuit offers many tools that are not found in New FamilySearch. Tools such as:

  • Receive notifications of changes made by other family members
  • Coordinate family research
  • Upload photos and documents
  • Correct mistakes
  • Post messages to the entire family

"The best site I have seen for sharing information and for interactive research. It has great potential for our One Name Society research. I am convinced this site has the potential to push back the boundaries of Family History Research."
