When you perform your initial search then go to view the record, you should be taken to another screen where you will see an option to "continue as a guest" or "register for free". If the user chooses "continue as a guest" they will have full access to the library subscription, if they decide to "register" the visitor will then have created their own registration which will allow them to build a family tree on our site and use the library subscription at the same time. This new option has been added to allow the visitor maximum access to the findmypast site, with the opportunity to build their family tree whilst using the library subscription, as mentioned if they continue as a guest, this will give them full access to the libraries subscription.
