Subscribe to the FamilySearch Quarterly International Newsletter

 FamilySearch has initiated a quarterly newsletter translated into 10 languages to over 2 million users of the website. You should have already received notice of the first issue of the newsletter if you are registered on and have selected to receive information and communication directly from FamilySearch.

To manage your communications from FamilySearch, you need to go to the your "Settings" selection. Here is a screenshot showing the location of the Settings link:

Once you click on the Settings link, you will see a list of options at the bottom of the page entitled Notifications. The selections that you can choose include the following:
  • Email weekly updates to ancestors I'm watching
  • LDS Family History Consultant and Leader Newsletter
  • FamilySearch General Newsletter
  • Family Tree Announcements
  • Indexing Newsletter
You can indicate by checkbox which of the options you would like to receive. Obviously, you must have a current email address in order for any of this to work.


  1. James, I got the email notice of the new Quarterly newsletter, but there was no actual newsletter. And I don't see it as a choice to subscribe to in the location you've written about above. On the actual blog post many of these same questions were asked. Do you know if there is such a thing as a new International Quarterly Newsletter and when we'll find it?

  2. What did the email notice of the new Quarterly newsletter say? Did you notice in Setting link there is no such a thing to choose to receive. What's going on? Nan

    1. The short post was evidently the entire newsletter. You have to go to and your settings, located in a pulldown menu from your name when you sign in. There is an option to select which mailings you want to get.
