A major overhaul of the Mormon Church's FamilySearch.org Web site will soon be available, phased in one step at a time. The plan is to provide a meaningful site, even for those who have no experience researching family history. Steve W. Anderson, Online Marketing Manager for the Church's Family History department, states that new visitors to the site will be able to "do something meaningful without having to learn anything prior."
While obviously aimed at newcomers, I suspect that experienced genealogists will also benefit from many of the changes.
Carrie A. Moore wrote an article in the Deseret Morning News, describing new online tools that will allow novices to log on and - with a few mouse clicks - pull up their family tree, with details about ancestors, of any faith or none, that are part of the database. "You'll be able to attach images or photos to it, or something like a timeline of events. It will have all kind of things to make it a much richer resource."
I would encourage all genealogists to read Carrie A. Moore's article at http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/0,1249,650194998,00.html
