First, check your username and password. If they are correct, then one of two things may have happened. FamilyParliament.com requires new registrations to be activated, either by yourself or by a member of the Family Parliament Team before you can logon; this information was present during registration. If you were sent an e-mail, follow the instructions. If you did not receive an e-mail, you may have provided an incorrect e-mail address or the e-mail may have been picked up by a spam filer. If you are sure the e-mail address you provided is correct, try contacting a member of the Family Parliament Team.
