Hello Hope Chest users,
Wow, it has been a BIG month here at Hope Chest!
A few weeks ago, Eric made the painful decision to put Hope Chest up for sale. Between his full-time job, his calling as a bishop, and his family responsibilities, he felt he could no longer give Hope Chest the time and attention it deserved. Many of you saw his announcement and reached out with love and support— thank you.
When Eric decided to move on, we seriously considered calling it quits, but your passion for Hope Chest helped us realize there is still a demand for quality family history programs. We are thrilled to announce Spencer Thomason, Eric’s longtime friend and colleague, has decided to take over Hope Chest. Spencer is an experienced programmer and businessman with a wonderful vision for Hope Chest. With his leadership, we anticipate Hope Chest will be around for years to come.
Spencer has completely revamped Hope Chest. There will be big changes— most we know you’ll love, and a couple that may be less popular. We ask for your patience and support as we work to bring you a sustainable, polished program.
We have turned off all traffic to the Hope Chest server. You won’t have access to your saved names and labels. Hope Chest will be unavailable for the rest of Monday (February 24, 2020). On Tuesday (February 25, 2020), please restart your computer so Chrome can update Hope Chest to version 10. After the computer reboots, you’ll be able to log into Family Search in Chrome as usual and check out the new and improved Hope Chest!
We know we would have never gotten this far without the support of our Hope Chest users. Thank you again for your excitement, your love, and your support. We feel honored to be hastening the work with you.
The Hope Chest Team
