One important feature is missing from the New Family Search. There should be a
"pop-up" screen which questions if you really want your grandmother "Nellie" to
be listed as male. There are way too many records with obviously incorrect
gender identifiers - which pose problems in sealing ancestors.
I should have stayed where I was living for another year as then I would have
access to the new Familysearch NOW. Not being able to get into it is slowing my
work down. I have to go to a FHC usually the one in SL to do the research. I was
there recently and had cards printed only to learn when I got home that the work
had already been done for 3 of my ancestors. All that had be done by me in
another temple district. Let the people here in the valley have
access to the new familysearch. We are from all over the world and the work that
we have been doing is just as important as the work on the plains and east
The church wants to give us access, the problem is that there are so many of us
that we would quickly swamp all resources and "ruin" the system. They are
trying to do the roll out in a measured way so as to make the process as
successful as possible and not turn people away because of crashes and such. Be
patient, they will get it to us as soon as they can.
If only this stuff was accurate. I know all to many who do sloppy work and have
a family tree that is inaccurate. I hope this improves but it is a little sad
people wish so much and try to make it all come true with little evidence.
Inaccurate genealogy?Who cares? Who is going to know?Nobody.
I know and I care ! I am listed as my uncle's son instead of my dad.Accuracy is important in all things whether it be the receipt for groceries,
your taxes, your grades, the phone book, and yes even your family history,Things known to be in error should be corrected whenever possible.
You will have your access soon enough and things will improve in accuracy over
time. Errors happen and nFS will allow us the privilege to clean up decades of
mistakes but it will take time!
