Het volgende bericht kreeg ik vandaag via de site van familysearch:
FamilySearch free sign-in offers greater subscriber experiences and benefits.
Beginning December 13, 2017, patrons visiting FamilySearch.org will see a prompt to register for a free FamilySearch account or to sign in to their existing account to continue enjoying all the free expanded benefits FamilySearch has to offer. Since its launch in 1999, FamilySearch has added millions of users, billions of various historical records, and many fun, new features like Family Tree, Memories, mobile apps, digital books, and dynamic help. In order to accommodate continued growth of these and future free services, FamilySearch must assure all its partners that its content is offered in a safe and secure online environment. Patrons creating a free account and signing in fulfills that need.
Patron sign in will also enable FamilySearch to satisfy the ongoing need for user authentication. This authentication can deliver rich, personalized discovery, collaboration, and help experiences. Simply put, signed-in visitors can access more searchable content and enjoy more personalized services.
Vooralsnog lijkt het me geen probleem om vanaf december 2017 op hun site in te loggen, maar zij hebben ook contracten/samenwerkingsverdragen met derden afgesloten. Hopelijk houden zij de scheiding tussen beiden goed in de gaten.
