I wonder if something like how programmers use 'deprecated' could be used. If you could mark a record as 'bad' or 'really this other person', then you could lock the bad records without actually merging. Specifically, if I had 3 J. Smiths, with no other information, It seems silly to 'merge' those r...

Brad,

I would be very interested to hear what you think of versioning for genealogy.

If you want to discuss it further, let me know. I think I have already dragged this thread off topic to much already.:D

Maybe on this forum, but I've been actively involved in both NFS betas, giving constructive feedback there, and the FamilyInsight beta, I have supplied dozens of suggestions on the feedback sections of NFS, life browser, standard finder, etc., participate in the familysearch wiki, write a blog conc...

I apologize for my harsh words, it just seems like: a) Everyone is turning a blind eye to issues that will severely damage the genealogical integrity of the Church's new system, believing that every element of NFS is infallible and inspired by God. b) Nobody is willing to take a hard look at what r...

We also have a local paperbox, which we give to specific & willing boys who need the money, to bundle and deliver to the mill - only about $500-700/yr total. This money is deposited into the church's financial system, but we keep a second set of books (Troopledger) to maintain "passbook" accounts f...

...If you want to prove something is RIGHT, you don't have to address al the other errors, just provide sources. If you can say "John Stewart was born on 9 Sep 1902 and I know this because I have a birth certificate, two censuses, a marriage record, the SSDI, a death certificate, naturalization rec...

...I took a look at the wiki, but it wasn't immediately obvious where things might be...later maybe I'll use the "search" function :) It is not the wiki you need to search, but the people on the wiki. I do not think they have a library built yet, but I know they are working on one. You might find m...

Hi everyone, first time here...I had no idea this site even existed! Great resource. Anyway, I'm a graphic designer/illustrator and I lend a lot of my spare time to free/open source software projects. I'd like to get an idea of how much (if any) Freely-licensed , church-related media exists. This w...

[INDENT] B. All church owned computers like those used in the clerks’ offices will be monitored periodically for appropriate use. [/INDENT] I would not put 'periodically' in this statement. Alternatively, you may change 'monitored' to 'audited'. I would also add that ALL computers WILL be monitored...

FWIW, I also agree with Alan_Brown -- I think the burglar scenario is a red herring. There is no real security in obscurity, only the illusion of such. Besides, to mix my metaphors even further, that horse has already left the barn. A Wasatch Front burglar casing a given street or house can already...
