Hi Pat, It should then automatically load your watchlist underneath.
It should show the FamilySearch IDs and the option to create a match.
OK, I've got it working -- but what does finding a match accomplish??

FamilySearch doesn't seem to have much info except dates and places.


Well, it does seem of minimal value at first -- kind of static. When you make the link, it adds a connection from the WikiTree side back to the FS info. This could reveal clues. Active WikiTreers probably go straight to FamilySearch to do their looking.

For reference, here is the help page with explanation for the why the tool exists:


We've been working on an extension that will auto-fill WikiTree's create-a-person form based on a FamilySearch profile.
