You can directly interface and sync to FamilySearch's Family Tree from within Legacy by going to Search > FamilySearch or My Toolbar > FamilySearch.

This is actually a more advanced topic but I am mentioning it now because this interface is a high priority for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and they want to know how to use this feature rather quickly. Before you can use the interface there are some very important things you need to know and I have put together some step by step training materials.

FamilySearch Training

This is a wonderful feature but make sure you take the time to learn what you need to know first before using it. If you go in willy nilly you can end up making changes that can be devastating to other researchers.
