Hi

Out of curiosity I tried downloading the original query (Long Houghton) but was unsuccessful, on looking at the Metadata Link (The i top right) it stated that Adobe Acrobat Reader was required.

Well, I downloaded Adobe Acrobat Reader (a free program) and then was able to download the Long Houghton Parish Register with no problems at all.

I am trying to view Fleenor:descendants of Michael Fleenor and when I click on it I get this message, "You do not have sufficient rights to view requested object.  Access Denied"  I can view other digital books just fine.  When I go to details I get this:
Title:
Fleenor : descendents of Michael Fleenor
Language: English;English;English
Provenance: Owning Institution:Genealogical Society of Utah d.b.a FamilySearch; http://www.familysearch.org/
Patron Usage Instructions: https://www.familysearch.org/terms; Protected

Where it says protected on the Patron Usage Instructions does that mean that it has to be accessed at a Family History library?
Thanks for any help-
