Renee,Thanks for the info. I am really curious about the second part.
I believe you are already aware of this but the official invitation for early access to new FamilySearch went to the registered consultants and registered priesthood leaders in the Jordan River Temple district yesterday.
I am also hopeful to have something official about the consultant model that has replaced the “view-only” model by the end of today.
Renee,I actually saw the pop-up message last Sat morning when I was working in RootsMagic 3's IGI search feature. Then went to the FamilySearch.org website and saw that is was coming from there.
It looks like the new popup and information is now there when you attempt to search in the IGI. The new message indicates that temple ordinances are no longer updated in the IGI and that members should work with a consultant or a family history center to check for names in the new FamilySearch. Of course they should check both the IGI and new FamilySearch to verify that the names have not been done.
There’s actually a new popup. The one you saw last Saturday indicated that IGI users were being given “view-only” access. This is not the case now. Rather than providing a limited, view-only option in new FamilySearch, members are being instructed to have a consultant or center director assist them as a “helper” in checking the names in new FamilySearch.Oh, I see the difference. Thanks.
Now we just have to wait to find out the rest of the story on the consultant model!
I would imagine that the family history consultants in the Provo temple district should get word of NFS access soon too. They are the last of the temple district without access along the Wasatch Front. I'll let you know when I have further word.
See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
