IGI Searching - Your FamilySearch password may need to be updated again

If you use Legacy's IGI Searching tool, you may need to update your password. Forthcoming changes to the FamilySearch website may stop certain passwords from working.

To prevent this from happening to you, please go to and manually sign in via the "Sign On" link in the upper right. If you get a message that your password is expiring, you will need to go to your FamilySearch account and change your password. If you sign on without getting a warning, your password is fine.

If you change your password on FamilySearch, you will need to change your password in Legacy. To do this follow these steps:

  1. In the main toolbar, click on the Search menu. Then click Search the IGI website.
  2. Click on the Options button in the lower right.
  3. Click on FamilySearch account settings.
  4. Enter your updated password here.

If you have not yet tried this powerful tool, click on Legacy's Search menu, then click Search the IGI website. Although you can manually search the website, Legacy automatically performs the searches using numerous combinations of search criteria that you probably could not come up with on your own.

Give it a try. This automatic IGI searching is available in both editions of Legacy - standard and deluxe.
