There is actually a message in the small print to say that the Server is too busy.

Have to wait til the workers all go back to their desks tomorrow!  ;D

Oooh, yes please, but I really want to do some research while the house is quiet  ::)
think I'll have one of AngelaR's Bellinis....

I agree  it would be helpful if the familysearch did put something to say why it's down and when they expect it to be back.....

They appear to have been 'working' on the site for some time now, according to the length of this thread!  so yes it would be nice if we could have a bit more information.
