“Web Site Being Tested,” Ensign, June 1999, 80
The Church recently began a public test of a new Internet genealogical service located at www.familysearch.org. The developmental test is open to anyone with Internet access; no password or clearance is needed. Due to test requirements, the site may be unavailable at times or experience slow responses.
Depending on test results, the Church’s full Internet genealogical service may be launched this spring or summer. Detailed explanations of the Web site’s various elements and databases will be made available at that time.
