Family Search Access
Posted 21 January 2013 - 11:48 AM
I just started using RootsMagic a few days ago. I can't seem to connect to the FamilySearch website. I registered at the new site, but when I try to connect from RootsMagic, it tells me that I have an "invalid login".
When I go directly to the site, not through RootsMagic, I get a message that "

Does anyone know how I can remedy this so that I can access the information at FamilySearch?

Is there anyway of knowing when I may or may not be granted access? What sort of criteria is used to allow some people to use the information and some not?

I'm not an LDS member, but applied for nFS access quite some time ago. I never received notification that it had been granted, but one day just happened to try to log in, and it worked!
Definitely keep us in the loop in terms of how long things ultimately take. Good luck!
