FamilySearch Adds Ability to Document All Family Relationships Including Same-Sex Relationships

The following announcement was written by FamilySearch:

The FamilySearch Family Tree now provides the ability for users to document all family relationships, including same-sex relationships. Nonprofit FamilySearch provides access to the world’s genealogical records and other free services to create family discoveries and memories. FamilySearch is a free service that enables anyone to discover, build, manage, share, and preserve their family’s history. It encourages genealogical accuracy based on original source records and contains over a billion user-contributed lineage-linked records. Patrons are now able to document same-sex relationships, including same-sex marriages and same-sex adoptions.

HOW IT WORKS 

When adding a spouse or parent to the FamilySearch Family Tree, the user can now add a spouse or parent of the same sex.  The Family Tree mobile app will also support this new capacity after users install the necessary updates.

I’v tried to correct the spelling of my great-grandparents last name for years, so I don’t use Family Search much! Why bother if you can’t get my family’s name right!

Finally a legal dose of reality. Freedom to contribute will enhance this site and everyone’s deserving perspective. Thank you LDS for amending FamilySearch to accommodate factual unorthodox subject matter.
