Recently, Family Search released the application for more public libraries to become affiliate libraries. The application process requires the public library to have a static IP address. This static IP address allows Family Search to make restricted records available at the public library while preventing access at other locations, such as my home. In addition, the library agrees to provide a link to Family Search for their library patrons.
Below is a video explaining why I'm hoping my public library and area public libraries will complete this application.
Libraries wishing to complete the application should:
- Print out the new contract.
- Sign the document, scan it, and save it as a PDF file.
- Email the signed document PDF to affiliatelibraries at familysearch.org.
- FamilySearch will return a countersigned contract to you
