    I could not get registered to look at documents on this website. They kept saying my email address or password was incorrect.
    Also, from what I could see on the non-registration part of their site, they have less information than the free LDS website: https://familysearch.org/search/collection/uri=http://hr-search-api:8080/searchapi/search/collection/1401638

      Evidently you have signed on to FindMyPast at some previous time for their comment of incorrect passwords, etc. When I clicked on a record for my ancestor it did reply that I would be charged “5 credits” but that upon clicking that opened another page just wanting my info of name, country, email, etc. It was free for me. Try again.

      FindMyPast partners with particular government agencies such at the British Library and the (British) National Archives to put records online. It’s likely these records can only be found at FindMyPast, at least to begin with. So FamilySearch may have both “more” and “less” than FindMyPast. Information on FindMyPast partners is at: http://www.findmypast.com/content/our-partners
