Difficulty with the family search website
« on: Monday 13 May 19 20:32 BST (UK) »
Is anyone else finding it difficult to activate the family search site. It is letting me put names and birth place and date(s) in, but doesn't give me a search option and won't let me choose marriage of other people. I have tried with Explorer and with Firefox.

Kapirin (Siberia 19th Century),
Kitching 1850,

No, but Firefox updated itself and now gives me some access.

Thank you
