It's Easy to Share a Story From FamilySearch!

  • From the story page you would like to share with family, click on the "Share" link as seen in the image below. A dropdown list of share options appears. If you use Facebook, Twitters, or Pinterest to share items, choose one of these. More typically, you will either be Emailing OR Texting your family members.
  • Clicking on the Email link will open up your email client, like Outlook, Apple Mail, or whatever app you use. If you work from inside a browser like with gmail, Yahoo, etc, this link will not work for you.
  • The "Copy Link" option is often actually the easiest to use. By copying the link, you can paste it into EITHER a new email OR into a new text message, and send it off to your family.

This is the Really Cool Part!

     You have just sent your family, children, grandchildren, etc the link by email or text message. What happens on THEIR end? When they click on the link, the FamilySearch webpage you shared will open up. They will not even have to log into FamilySearch. Isn't that great? Your grandchildren will not even need an account to see what you have shared with them.
