FamilySearch Launches New Pressroom

The FamilySearch.org pressroom (media.familysearch.org) has had a facelift, overhaul, and well, let’s just say an overall upgrade! Please bookmark it or subscribe! It is newly designed for those who want to receive or keep track of the latest FamilySearch news. We believe it will also be a good source to monitor interesting news and select online content from industry blogs and mainstream news outlets that pertain to the fascinating, growing marketplace of family history. We encourage you to use the Subscribe to News feature to receive notifications of FamilySearch news announcements or subscribe through RSS feeds or visit us often. All news content and articles are easily shareable.

What you will find on the new FamilySearch pressroom:

  • News releases
  • Weekly collections updates
  • Feature articles
  • Industry blog posts
  • Industry content in mainstream news media
  • Updated company facts
  • Media library
  • FamilySearch Facebook and Twitter feeds

Weekly Collections Updates provide a quick overview of all the new historical record content published by FamilySearch.org in the past week.

The Features section will occasionally take a deeper dive into relevant family history industry topics. Check out the “World of a Genealogy Giant” feature. It is an intimate interview with FamilySearch’s own Robert Kehrer, senior product manager for FamilySearch.org’s search engine.

The Company Facts page provides a quick, up-to-date snapshot of FamilySearch’s worldwide operations. Do you need approved photos to support your FamilySearch or family history-related stories? Explore the new Media Library for downloadable photos.

Social share icons make it easy to quickly share your favorite FamilySearch newsroom content with your subscribers or friends.

Thank you for supporting FamilySearch. We look forward to serving your FamilySearch interests and the family history industry through our new pressroom.
