They are right. Photos and stories add the leaves and scenery to our otherwise bare family tree.
FamilySearch has created a video lesson complete with handouts called “Quick Start to Photos and Stories” to help us share images and tell the stories about our ancestors.
If you haven’t added photos and stories to the records of your ancestors on Family Tree, take some time to do so and enjoy those added by others.
An added benefit in this process is that FamilySearch securely stores backup copies of your data and photos in their granite vault storage site. The photos and stories you’ve added to Family Tree will undoubtedly live longer than we will and will be available for our children and our children’s children.
