LDS Church's FamilySearch Database to Add Same-Sex Families to Family Tree Feature


Same-sex relationships, including same-sex parents and same-sex couples, will soon be provided in FamilySearch Family Tree.

The world's largest genealogy organization is redesigning so the LDS Church-sponsored database can store and provide records of same-sex families.

The major overhaul to the website's system should be ready by 2019, according to a brief news release posted online Wednesday.

The announcement said's goal is to capture accurate genealogy "that represents past, present and future families of the world."
