Restrictions for Viewing Images in FamilySearch Historical Record Collections
At times, users of the FamilySearch website may encounter this message when attempting to view images of Historical Record Collections:
Access to records is regulated by contract with the archive and business partner the data is received from. The terms of these agreements may change over time. In some cases FamilySearch does not receive permission to publish images or complete index records on our site.
This video available on YouTube will help to explain this.
Some images may only be viewed when a user is signed-in to FamilySearch. Some images may only be viewed online by members of supporting organizations. And some images are only available at family history centers. To find the family history center nearest you, search the Find a Family History Center Map.
