New partners

Many people already know that FamilySearch has partners, Ancestry, My Heritage, and, Find my Past. That in itself is exciting, you get more records! But what some people haven't heard is that slowly people are getting memberships to those places for free. FamilySearch randomly chooses some of its members and sends them emails saying the get free membership. They say they will be done in about 3 months. I have heard that Ancestry is keeping 1% of its records that you have to pay to see. If you don't have the free membership yet, your local family history center does. Family history consultants should have already gotten free membership, and if you are a family history consultant and have not received a free membership can email:
They also have said that youth consultants do not receive them yet, but they are working on it. 

Utah will not receive free membership last, that is just a rumor, they give it out on a random basis, but you have to have logged on in the last 6 months. (I think)

If you have free membership and have a problem with one of the sites FamilySearch asks you not to email the problems to them but to contact the partners:
Ancestry: 1-800-262-3787
Find my Past:
My Heritage:
