It appears that the Index for this collection is restricted to Latter Day Saints only. When non-LDS (such as myself) search the index, we get zero results even for very common names.

It there is no objection by the end of the weekend (Sunday 22 December 2019) Utah time, I will mention that the index is LDS-only in this article. --Av85647 (talk) 17:10, 17 December 2019 (MST)

There being no objection, the edit was made. --Av85647 (talk) 13:03, 23 December 2019 (MST)

As has been explained to you before, statements regarding access to FamilySearch Historical Records collections are regulated by our legal department. Accordingly, I have reverted your change to the article. SvareJM (talk) 09:47, 3 January 2020 (MST)

Please can you get the legal department to make this edit quickly? And also, a FS Staff member to respond to the discussion at to clarify what is going on. The fact that it appears that non-LDS cannot use the index is quite important to mention. They will be confused when they keep getting zero search results, even for common names. And please in the future make your objections known before I make the edit. I gave six days notice, which I thought would be more than enough for any concerned editors to discuss my proposed edit. --Av85647 (talk) 14:20, 3 January 2020 (MST)
