It would be a good idea that my family history center appear when I sign in LDS.org

  • Welcome to the community support forum for FamilySearch. FamilySearch personnel read every discussion thread and may or may not respond as their time permits. We patrons, having various levels of knowledge and experience do our best to help each other with concerns, issues. and/or questions.

    Given the amount of development work still in progress and planned, I seriously doubt this will crop up (become available) in less than a year. More than likely, longer than that, if at all.

    But there is an easy way to do it. After you sign in to FamilySearch.org, click on Help and then select Contact Us. Create a shortcut to the Contact Us page for your computer.

    Instead of going through all that process, start FamilySearch with the shortcut. If you need to renew your credentials, the system will have you do that and then open the page. If you don't need to renew your credentials, the system will auto login with your personal computer.

  • Sounds like a great idea and should be pretty easy to implement. Currently the menu under "My Account and Ward" on lds.org looks like this:



    All it would take is to add "My Family History Center" between "My Temple" and "My Family Tree." This would only have to be a link to https://www.familysearch.org/ask/help which, when it loads, asks for permission to use ones current location, then displays the nearest Family History Center even if one has not signed into FamilySearch.

    If one does happened to be signed in, then in addition the Family History Center ones ward is assigned to also appears.

    Sounds like a five minute project a programmer could use a rest from more intense work.
