Is the Family Search Feature on RootsMagic 4 ready for use. If so, how do I gain access? I note that there is a tutorial available. Should I download it and view it. The feature sounds wonderful.

New FamilySearch is currently in a phased rollout. Some people have access, some don't (including many LDS members). RM4's FamilySearch features work for those who have access (and doesn't for those who don't). As people get access to New FamilySearch, RM4 will be ready for them.

RootsMagician,
I have been using nFS for a while now, but have stopped because of a major glitch that might call into question whether the nFS interfacing feature is

My area has recently been switched to the new family search program, but I can't remember how to use it in conjunction with RM4. I noted mention of a tutorial in one of the other posts. I have looked everywhere I can think of, and can't find it. How do I access it? Does anyone know when the instruction book will be out?

Try the nFS tutorials here:

I'm sure that Help within RM4, itself, should also provide some background.

As to the RM4 book, I believe that it is now in the printer's hands and is expected to be out within the next month or so.
