New link for sign-in page: FamilySearch.org/SignIn or FamilySearch.org/Sign-In. Easier to share with others.

I often find it difficult to direct others to sign into FamilySearch. Sometimes it's just too much to point out the link on the page for some people, especially if you can't be there in person to help. Having a short-link built into FamilySearch would make this considerably easier. A simple addition of /SignIn or /Sign-In or even /LogIn or similar would make this much easier than the current login link. It would only need to direct one to the right place.

  • not sure what page you are talking about. If you go to FamilySearch.org there is a large sign in at the top right of the page. Where are you saying there is not a sign in noted.

  • Have you ever tried to bookmark the sign in page? If you have, you'll know that it doesn't work. I don't know the details, but apparently the sign in page is very dependent where you came from so it can sent you back to the same spot, whether the search page, the home page, indexing, memories, or any other place you could possibly start in FamilySearch without being signed in then need to sign in.

    Since the sign in link in is exactly the same spot no matter where you are in FamilySearch, have you been able to figure out what the difficulty is when you tell people "click on Sign In in the top right corner."?
