Registered User

The Registered User facility strikes a balance between two conflicting requirements:

The sole purpose of the Registered User facility is to address this particular conflict.

The following questions and answers will help you understand the Registered User facility.

What are the advantages of being a Registered User?
When Registered Users visit this website they see more information about living people - in particular:

This extra information affects the results of the Database Search facility and also Branch Charts.

Registered Users also have access to Data Release Notes.

What if I decide not to become a Registered User?
You will still have access to the information on this website, but less detail will be available to you about living people. The information presented about people who have died is no different, whether you are a Registered User or not. You may decide that this limitation is acceptable to you, in which case you will still be most welcome to visit this website as much as you wish.

Who can become a Registered User?

How do I apply to be a Registered User?
You must apply to the website author, by email or by using the Private Feedback form on the Contact page. If you use the Private Feedback form, please note that you must include your own email address in order for your registration to be carried out. Once the website author accepts your application, you will be sent an email which contains a link which you can then follow to set up your password. Your username will be your email address.

Will I have to log in each time I visit this website?
Yes, as of the re-launch of the website in October 2018, Registered Users will need to log in using their username and password. This will only be necessary in order to see more details of living people. Registered Users, like anyone else, will see the vast majority of the website data without having to log in.

If you have any further questions about the Registered User facility please contact the website author by email or by using the Private Feedback form on the Contact page.
