I _think_ what's she's saying is that just like there's a
Library Edition of Ancestry in addition to the Home edition,
there will now be an FHL Edition to which the FHCs will have
access, and that within that FHL edition will be distinct
(pale green) links for use by people with their own Ancestry
home edition accounts. Sounds like going around Robin
Hood's barn, but it should _work._

I dropped by the FHC to order a film this afternoon, found
the FS site virtually useless. It was so slow to respond it
was like I was on 2400 bps modem instead of broadband, and
when I hit Reload/Refresh, it gave me a 404 instead. I
didn't see the results screen there either. :(
