Give Clear Directions for Beginners Starting Their Family Tree in FamilySearch
The FamilySearch instructions found at FamilySearch.org are confusing to some beginners.
I am a Church Service Missionary serving in FamilySearch Support. I had a call today from a person who followed the directions to start her tree by adding her parents first. We helped her correct it so that she is now the primary person. Her suggestion is to change the instructions ( https://www.familysearch.org/gettingstarted/create-family-tree)
Starting with your parents, add living and deceased relatives as far back as you can. A quick phone call or text to an older relative might help you fill in some gaps.”
