Why do I need to sign in to FamilySearch at a FamilySearch center?

When you use FamilySearch.org, you must sign in before you search historical records collections or use Family Tree. Many of our agreements with record custodians require this sign-in. This requirement includes people who use computers at FamilySearch centers or affiliate public libraries.

Staff at FamilySearch centers or affiliate libraries can help people create new accounts. Please observe important security guidelines as you assist.
