Brian - I was wondering about time-out too.

I tried my wired connection on my desktop pc but had just the same result - zilch.

I don't get a printer icon or a download icon, I just get the book title which is clickable but after clicking it slows right down and halts

Hi gen,

When that happens, look on the address bar at the top where you see the url address..... Right over on the righthand side of the bar will be two icons. A star which you can click to add to favorites and just to the left of it is another icon... I think it was a shield, can't remember off-hand. Click on this icon and it will say the page has not passed certification and gives you the option to accept it anyway. Click accept then the page will begin to load properly. It takes a little while but it will load.

Right then I am using firefox: After clicking onto the book I can see a movable 'white line' which is indicating data downloaded. Initially moves slowly, to right and above I see a printer icon then download icon followed by current view icon.
Clicking onto the download icon the speed of 'white line' goes into overdrive!

Best wishes HL

Hi, I've tried accessing and have registered to the LDS site, but when I choose a book it tells me that I don't have permissions.  Any suggestions?  Kit

If you post a link on what you want to download I will download and put into my dropbox.
Once it's in my dropbox I will pm you with a link if o'k.

Thanks Calverley Lad, I was just browsing but I might take you up on the offer when I find something of real interest :-)

Very frustrating.  I'd really like to gain access and wonder what I'm doing wrong.  It takes me to a log in screen for exLibris Rosetta and tells me:

"You do not have sufficient rights to view requested object.  Login in order to view object".

Are the records I'm trying to access only available to specific subscribers such as Libraries?

One of the records I tried to access was the Parish Registers for North Meols, Lancashire.

BTW - Many thanks to Gen List Lass for highlighting these ebooks.

Kit: I have just done as I have done since original post, entered North Meols, Lancashire then clicked onto search.
Brings up a long list of books, so can't see where your going wrong?

[Correction, I get the same message when I tried to download the 'registers for North Meols' The books 1/2 are both listed as protected]
