Trying to use RM4 family search. popup box says I have to log in. I have family search log in, but it says I need "new family search" and in order to get that, I have to be a member of the church. So, is the family search capabilities for me and many others just an option we can't use?

This is from a post by Alfred


Look in the RootsMagic 4 Help menu.Search for Family Search choose it from the list.In part it says:
QUOTE
Currently, New FamilySearch is a work-in-progress and is not available to the general public. It is first being slowly introduced to members of the LDS Church by geographic region. Access to others is expected to be available as the system grows and matures.More information and video tutorials on using RootsMagic with New FamilySearch are available online at www.RootsMagic.com/fs


In other words, Family Search isn't fully implemented by the Family Search people yet.

I think this indicates where the development priorities are not to everyones taste. I guess I am not alone in finding links to shared data not very rewarding (due to many inaccuracies and the like).

It is a pity this side of the new release was a priority and that the work has been to the detriment of other features (incliuding a number of long standing requests on the RM3 forums) as well as the unfinished business (perhaps unstarted would be closer) of reporting improvements.
