How do I login to the site?

 

  • You can only login if you have registered for a Membership account, i.e you are a full member or website registered member of the Family History Society of Cheshire.
  • Click on the Login button above. You will be prompted for a Username and Password.
  • Username = This can be either your membership number or a username you set up when you set up your account
  • Password = This is the Password that you setup for your Membership account
  • If you don't already have an acount, you can also use the login button to register as a website user only, by clicking on the REGISTER BUTTON.  You may choose to become a fully paid up member later
  • Alternatively you can click on Membership and read Membership Options, then Click on Website User to register.
  • Underneath the login form there are options you can use if:  you can’t remember your login details, or if you haven’t got an account.

If you are already a member and have never used this new site yet, the first time you use the website you will have to set up your password.  It wasn't possible to transfer passwords from our old website. See  the separate FAQ about resetting passwords.

 

After you have successfully logged in you can go to My Membership/My Profile  to see the information we have stored about your membership.  You can  change details as you wish by clicking on Edit Profile.

 

If you are having trouble logging in then its usually because you need to reset your password.

There are two ways to action this:

  • click on the login button and then you will see a Forgot Password?  link
  • click on Membership in the main menu then Forgotten Password

Then :

  • On the next screen enter your email address and then click on submit.
  • Now look for an email from us.
  • If you cant find it then check in your junk/spam folder.
  • If you dont receive it then please contact the Web Administrator via Contact Us as it usually means we dont have your latest email address.
  • If you do get the email then click on the blue link which will take you back directly to our website to reset your password.
  • You will be taken to a verification email with a long name already pre entered.  Here enter your username  in the top field, then you will be taken to a page to choose your new password
  • Please make this a strong password: at least 8 characters long with a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols

If you can't remember your Username click on Forgotten my Username enter you email address.  A return email will be sent to you showing your username.  This will be either your membership number or a dedicated Username you set for yourself.

Once successfully singed in you can always revisit your information by clicking on My Membership - My Profile
