What is Essentialist Genealogy (Part 2)

Essentialist Genealogy is a new way of researching your family tree using your smartphone. It will save time and money and ensure correct lines while using the largest universal community tree- Family Tree.

Family Tree is developed, supported and run by FamilySearch.org and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

The Essentialist Genealogy Method also known as “TEGM” has been designed to help all those using the Family Tree app to apply genealogical industry research standards when using this tree. This six step process will help you quickly identify ancestors who need more complete information and connections to ensure a high standard of temple service.

This week Family Search announced updates to tools and processes for temple service See updates here

These new updates demonstrate a desire for a more complete sourced and cited tree with documentation and evidentiary proof, a tree that better meets the genealogical proof standards. With millions of individuals working to improve this tree we needed a quick and easy research method that allows each of us to contribute. The Essentialist Genealogy Method is just what we need.

This six step process design and development by Amy Lindquist will be available in August 2019. It will include free teaching tools and videos to help provide easy learning.
