Now We Can Fix Errors in FamilySearch. Here's a FORM to help.

I was so excited about new.FamilySearch when it was announced.  However, after watching every dump all of their information into it without verifying and proving it, I found it soon became a dumping ground for all kinds of information.  I was even shocked to find my mother had died without me knowing it and her ordinances were up for grabs as a "green arrow".  My mom was shocked too.

But with the new "Family Tree"s, located at familysearch.org, we can clean up the mess.  Whether it remains clean will have to be seen.  I believe some people just go in and mess things up so they can see their name next to the information.  Suggestion - change it back to the correct information and you can still keep your name there.  Most of us don't care who's name is listed - just that the information is CORRECT!!!

Here is a blank copy of a form to help you keep track of those you have Verified, Digitized their records and then willing to SHARE  [click here].  I hope that it helps you clean up your lines so that the record can be a blessing to others as they stop duplicating efforts on ancestors that have been verified and the ordinances done.  Then they can move on to other relatives yet to be discovered.

Happy HUNTing.
