Godfrey.com accessible for free at FamilySearch Centers

Previous to the Footnote.com announcement, Godfrey Memorial Library also announced a partnership with FamilySearch (formerly called the Genealogical Society of Utah) that would give free access to Godfrey.com in FamilySearch Centers (formerly family history centers).

Access to these new services at FamilySearch centers will likely not come for several weeks, accordingly to Beverly Odom, who shared a message she received from Richard Black at Godfrey Memorial:

Beverly, the church is getting us a list of IP addresses for your computers. They told us that it will be a couple of weeks before they have that list. At that time, we will be able to finalize the FHC connection

Whether the dreaded IP-based access-scheme prevents access to personal accounts at Footnote and Godfrey remains to be seen. You'll recall the houpala that surrounded Ancestry.com's usage of an IP-based access scheme at the Salt Lake Family History Library.
