FamilySearch - User Profile

The User Profile screen is displayed when you click the User Profile... link in the My Account box on the Home tab of the Legacy FamilySearch window.

The information shown on the User Profile screen is downloaded from FamilySearch.  It includes your name, email address, phone number, street address, and your preference settings.  

If you want to add or change any contact information in your profile, you must do it from the FamilySearch website.  Click here to start your browser and then click the Sign In link near the upper-right of the window.  After you are signed in, click on your name in the upper-right corner of the window and then choose Settings from the menu box. This takes you to the Settings screen where you can make any desired changes. When you are done, click the Save Changes button at the bottom.

You can specify which pieces of your contact information you want to display to others users of FamilySearch when they display contributor information.  Your Contact Name is always included but you can add other information to what you want other people to see.  These include your full name, telephone number, email address, and mailing address.

Click Save when you are finished.
