England and Wales 1939 Register
The above dataset should be available to search as described here : https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/2836130?fbclid=IwAR20oWvCynJCcxMPrdbYZE26CuyuVuvmjc3ZL_-1TZLlnZVdvb4W0-49ZRY
The link on that page doesn't work.
I'd be grateful for any assistance. I was hoping to add links to profiles on the Family Tree.
I am not a member of the LDS church.
This looks to me to be one of those indexes that only church members can access.
Assuming this to be correct, EITHER
FamilySearch should be honest about the situation and advise this so that non LDS church members are not confused.
OR this database should not appear at all if you are not a church member, or put another way, should only appear if you sign in through a church account,0
Looked for the record and was ablke to access it. https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2836130

Like i said the link in that page to actual data does not work - sure, it gets the description, but the not data.0
I use Firefox - I tried Chrome with the same result.0
We signed into FamilySearch with our public account and we could not generate the field to enter the information about our ancestor either even though the description for the collection was at the top of the screen we could access. The description did say that users would be redirected to findmypast to view the images. FamilySearch does not own the images.
When we clicked How to use this collection, we were directed to a Wiki article that had a reminder that some of the records that might be available at FamilySearch can have restrictions. You make want to review the Wiki article for yourself.
Since images are available through findmypast, you may want to contact them regarding this collection. The National Archives in Kew, England are listed as the record owners, so that would be another place to try to access these records.0
Thank you for your replies.0

I am familiar with using this collection - and not a member of the LDS Church - so can confirm that, using a public account, it is inaccessible.
In the past, I have used my visits to a Family History Centre (from where this collection can be viewed) to download items from this collection. I have just checked and can confirm that if these are added as sources to your relatives' IDs they can be viewed once you return home. This is quite unusual, but probably relates to them being indexed records, rather than images.
If you are able to attend a Family History Centre (or perhaps your own, local public library) I would suggest viewing the originals on the Find My Past website. These show clear details of the whole family, neighbours, etc., in much the same way as the original images of the census returns. Unfortunately, many names are redacted - usually for individuals born less than 100 years ago, for whom no positive proof of death is available, so relating to privacy concerns for living persons.1
