Family Trees/World Connect: Family Trees or World Connect allows you to upload a GEDCOM file and publish it for others to see.
It is currently being reviewed by our software engineers and security team and we plan on having a read-only, searchable version up in the next few weeks.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but protecting our users’ personal information is our top priority.
Update: March 6, 2018 We have some good news on our progress to bring Roots Web back online.
Right now, the best way for us to meet both goals is to begin bringing portions of Roots Web back online in a read-only state.
This means you will have access to content, but you will not be able to load new content in these sections.
Also, here are answers to a few questions we’ve heard from the community: Why is this taking so long?
In addition to making the site more secure, we’ve upgraded our backend system to provide an easier-to-use interface to manage your email list subscriptions.
I’ve heard not everything is coming back online, is that true?
We will be returning World Connect and Mailing Lists back to their full functionality. In cases where we are unable to bring back previous functionality or content, we will explore ways for people who uploaded data to retrieve it if we don’t feel we can put it back online safely. Update: January 9, 2018 We have spent the last few weeks reviewing the functionality on Roots Web and have created a plan to bring many of your contributions back online over the next few months.
Today, we are bringing World Connect, one of our most valued features, back online.
As we make World Connect available, it will initially be in a read only state.
