A: Scroll down just a little and you’ll see a box with 6 characters. That’s the “Code” you need to enter. You may already know this but it’s called a “captcha” and it’s to keep computer programs from creating fake memberships. back-to-top
A: Once you become a “paid” member, you should see a "Members Only” menu tab. Guest members do not have access to the Members Only menu. This menu allows access the Member Directory and the Family Tree Database. The Family Tree Database is a link to a completely different website which requires its own user name and password. To access the Family Tree Database, your George Soule Lineage must be accepted by our Lineage Assistance Committee. This is necessary to maintain the integrity and accuracy of the database. After your lineage is accepted by the Lineage Assistance Committee, you will be given access and the ability to add your tree to the Family Tree Database. Guest members do not have access to the Members Only menu. back-to-top

A: We don’t have a Renew button. With a renewal button we found members were renewing too early or multiple times because they weren’t sure when or if was time to renew.
Our website takes care of all that:
A: You will receive an email with an invoice 1 month before your renewal, and we’ll send reminders if you forget :-). Within that one-month window you will also see a pop-up when you log into the Soule Kindred website. Lastly, you can go to your user profile to see your due date for renewal:
A: Log in and click on your name at the top of the page. A small window will pop-up. Click on "View profile” to access your profile page. Click the gray "Edit profile” button and you can add your Soule Lineage about 1/2 way down the page. Some fields, such as the “approve lineage” field, are only accessible to Administrators. back-to-top
A: The only option for your User Name is your email address. If you need a new password, click on the "Log in” button at the top of the page and a small login window will pop-up. Go to the very bottom of that pop-up window and click on the “Forget password” link. The system will then send you an email to change your password. back-to-top

A: We have noticed that certain Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are not accepting emails from Soule Kindred. We periodically send out informational emails for elections, newsletters, events, fund raising, and most importantly, renewal reminders. These ISPs in particular seem to be rejecting our emails: att.net, bellsouth.net, pacbell.net, and sbcglobal.net.
You may need to “whitelist” emails coming from Soule Kindred so they do not get blocked by your ISP. If you’re not sure how to do this, contact your Internet Service Provider and ask them what you need to do to let Soule Kindred emails through to your email client. back-to-top
A: We stopped accepting "automatic payments" because it was causing a lot of problems. Members were not cancelling their automatic payments when they no longer wished to remain a member, or they were changing emails without telling us and continued to have payments deducted from their credit card when they didn’t want to renew. We found ourselves sending out a lot of refunds. The new billing system sends out several renewal reminders with a link to renew using a credit card or by sending a check. Soule Kindred does not store or have access to your credit card information, only the merchant services company. back-to-top
