      Bill,

      Thanks I kind of thought that when I was where.  But it was nice to see some of the changes taking place all the time.

      I remember getting the instructions on how to add photos and histories, etc.  The hyperlinks they showed were not there until later that day.

      Paul

      Paul,

      Any content added to the FT beta site will eventually disappear, so we
      discourage its use.

      But anything added to the main FT site (https://familysearch./org/tree)
      will not disappear, although it may be subsequently edited by users. The
      Photos and Stories features of FT are in a "beta" phase, but the contents
      will not disappear.

      It can be confusing to know what the plan is for the various "betas".
