When trying to use the new FamilySearch feature in RM4, it was asking for a sign in. At the FamilySearch website, it looks like you have to be a member of the LDS Church to register. Is this true, or am I doing something wrong in RM4?

Yes at this time it is required that you be a member of the LDS church in order to use the site. In the future it is planned to be available to all. Even now some members of the LDS church do not have access to the site.

It is being beta tested a few areas at a time.

Thanks, Roger. Hope that access opens up in the future as planned

Most of the information found in new FamilySearch is still available in the Ancestrial file, IGI file, and Pedigree Resource File. You could use the web search in RM4 to find most of the information.
