      • The post is NOT fixed!
        It puts one into a vicious circle.
        Fill in email address, it sends me an email, click the download my free forms and it takes me right back to the email signup page.
        Come on this continuous amateur crap is frustrating to the point of giving up on your stuff, website and digital subscription.

        • I’ve just checked the download form and it is working correctly. When you enter your email address, you receive an email with a link. When you click the link, your computer will download the forms. Have you checked your downloads? You should have a zipfile containing the 5 forms.
          If you continue to have trouble please email me at ashlee.peck@fwmedia.com and I will send you the zipfile. We apologize that you are having trouble accessing the forms.

        • We’re sorry if you find the setup of the page confusing. You should just need to enter your email address once, and then when you click on the link that comes in your email you will be taken to the free download. Please let us know if we can do anything to help.

          • I have tried at least a half a dozen times and have yet to get and e-mail that sends a link. This email sent me right back to the article page which asks me for my e-mail for another try at it.

          • Hi Allen,

            Please forward the email you are receiving to me so I can see what you’re getting. I will also be able to send you the file directly once I have your email address.


  1. of the zip file, one is not allowing it to open (all others opened and can view) and am receiving the following error…can you help? I am using the most current version of Windows 10 operating System.


    Compressed (zipped) folder error
    Windows cannot complete the extraction.
    The destination file cannot be created.

  2. I have been trying to get the free forms and have sent the request in the link which says to use the link in the e-mail I should receive. I have not received one e-mail in the past week since I started trying to get the forms. What gives. I have tried getting forms for quite some time and never get any e-mails from you that ever gives me a link on how to download any of the forms. One time you sent a separate e-mail that told me what to do but that does not even work now.

    I have just tried again twice but never once received and e-mail.

  3. I give up. I have tried four times today and have not received any e-mail from any time I responded with my e-mail address.

    This is the URL from the page I get after supplying my e-mail address: https://www.familytreemagazine.com/articles/a-sample-of-essential-family-tree-forms/?k=ImPjJGCvOSvclRCk6xkjzQXdhnPikvOP11hVZVXuR7g%3D&utm_medium=email&utm_source=emedia_blast&utm_campaign=sft-lmn-hs-180112-forms

    which says this: Thank you. Your freebie is on its way, please check your e-mail.

    Then I never get an e-mail.
