    FamilySearch enables guests to research their own family history and as it is one huge shared tree, we can share information between descendants. This is a great resource for us to benefit from other peoples research, that we maybe otherwise wouldn't know or enables us to confirm our own sources. For more detailed information, see the link below.

    Purpose of family tree • FamilySearch

    As a non church member I thought FamilySearch consisted of more than Family Tree. Are you saying that the official position is that FamilySeach is solely FamilyTree .

    I think he just phrased things poorly and really does mean all of FamilySearch. Here is more information: which appears to start with their mission statement:

    (As this started as a conversation between two moderators, it appears to be an attempt to create a Help Center Article aka FAQ document that will be searchable here. If that is the intent, it should probably have bleen closed after the first comment to prevent stray additional comments like mine.)

    Since I posted above, this topic has been moved to Family Tree, from Help Center Categories/ FamilySearch Community .

    Interesting ...

    Original 'Poster" of this 'Question', 'chepb1', has a 'Badge' of "[mod]" next to/beside his "Contact Name" ...

    But ...

    That Said ...

    The "Role" for 'chepb1', ONLY has the designation of, "Member", recorded against it - NOTHING else.

    [ ie. Where, "Member" refers/relates ONLY to being a participant of this "Community.FamilySearch" Forum... ]

    I checked such; as, I though such a 'Question', from the likes of a "Moderator" [ie. these days, mainly implying, 'FamilySearch' "Support" (Personnel)] was rather strange; in fact, concerning.

    I Just thought, that I would mention this.

    @Brett .

    If you remember, we had the "reverse" problem on the old GetSat forum. Individuals would make comments withou using an "Employee" label. On this occasion, we have what is seemingly an ordinary "member" giving themselves a "mod" label. I have seen moderators instigate posts here (and why not?), but we should feel confident about the actual "status" and responsibilities of all those posting to this forum.
