In addition to the merge feature, other features were released. Here is a summary of the new features added to the program:
- You can click a checkbox and stay signed in to Family Tree for 2 weeks. People are encouraged to do this only if they are working on their own computers. Using this option on a public or shared computer is not recommended.
- Users will be able to reserve LDS Temple ordinances directly in Family Tree and if you click Add to Temple Ordinance List, the names are added to your list, and you can print a Family Ordinance Request, assign to the temple, or unreserve all or some of the ordinances.
- Soon the Family Tree program will contain the data entry templates needed to help users enter names in Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, etc.
- The resource http://familysearch.org/treetraining has been available in English for some time. It is now available in other languages.
The bulk of this information came with an email sent to the FamilySearch Centers, where they were encouraged to share the information with their staff.
