We thought your LDS blog subscribers and readers would like to know how to receive their free personal accounts to Ancestry.com, FindMyPast.com, and MyHeritage.com. The first phase of the offer campaign has been managed by email invitation. More than 138,000 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have taken advantage of the offer to get free personal accounts.
FamilySearch has received numerous requests from LDS members who want access to this offer who have not received the email invitation for whom we did not have email addresses. The following link allows any LDS member, age 13 and above, to initiate the process of getting a free account with any of our commercial partners.
The link is: http://familysearch.org/
If LDS members have any difficulties creating new accounts or converting existing partner accounts, they will need to contact FamilySearch Support at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-866-406-1830 for help.
In October 2014, we are planning a full-scale campaign letting members of the Church worldwide know of access to these partner accounts. Right now, we wanted to reach out to your LDS subscribers. More details will be shared as we get closer to that launch.
