Big things are happening at Photoloom! Just for starters, we are now an official software affiliate with New FamilySearch, and are working to become “New FamilySearch Certified.”
With our upcoming 3.0 release, Family Photoloom members will be able to import information from New FamilySearch* and tag their pictures with New FamilySearch IDs, enabling their pictures to be associated with records stored in New FamilySearch.
What does this mean for you?
# You can import your genealogy information into your Family Photoloom account directly from New FamilySearch, so you will no longer need to type it in.
# You can help ornament the global New FamilySearch tree with your pictures and documents. You have complete control over what is kept private and what is made available to other researchers.
# Together we are paving the way for a new generation of "image-enriched genealogy."
