Yes, we do need something that is updatable when it comes to submitter information. Not like the old Ancestral File where all that stuff is still there sometimes 30 years after that began. The 'new FamilySearch', based on those screenshots at the link posted elsewhere on this board yesterday, is the...

I do remember seeing that the Cerberian product was used for FH sites between at least 2002-2004, but they never said if they replaced it with another system or are using a different or in-house system that uses the Blue Coat database only. Another update on what became of Cerberian: The people that...

I've been looking at this, and I've got a possible idea here. Full-time missionaries keep an 'area book' (see Preach My Gospel for more info on this) and they put alot of similar information in those area books, which basically contain alot of information about the proselyting area as well as about ...

Tom Palmer: What you propose may be closer to reality than you think. See the threads in the FamilySearch/PAF area of the forums to see more. As it is, the FCHD is beta testing this 'family tree' software right now with 3,000 beta testers. You will log on and see your records (likely in my opinion j...

I see where you may be going with this. So you are saying that when we have a tree up, and we know certain sources, and those sources have been indexed and scanned and are thus online, that we should be able to link to them? If so that would be an extraordinary thing, to see exactly where the data i...

There are also some books relating to the genealogy program, I think a whole issue of BYU Studies, which is online at a commercial site run by LDS Media, that because of it's nature, discusses the Church's use of technology and computers for family history. Another book discusses the early familysea...

One of the things to consider before dumping PAF would be the fact that wireless hotspots and the like are not widely available yet. It varies from provider to provider, and there are large areas of cities not covered, including maybe even places where cemeteries and church records, etc., would be f...

Interesting stats on lds.org usage, etc.

I found this page last night, on a large commercial site that has some free tools that are used by alot of people. Has some very interesting statistics on lds.org, as well as links to similar pages for the other Church internet sites. http://www.alexa.com/data/details/main?q=&url=lds.org There's a g...

Tom is right, the Scriptures are not in PDF format. They are in a text format that is set up to be read in HTML and probably uses XML for formatting purposes online. But having a page for page PDF format online where you could print a page or pages could be extremely useful. They already have printe...

Some other thoughts that might come into play on such a tool. These affect some of the variables. The only part of the equation that is static is the number of high councilors, that is always 12. 1. Many stakes have less than 12 units, in fact, mine has six units. Conversely, there's a stake in Prov...
