FamilySearch API should be released the following release after FamilySearch goes final. The API will include member authentication, read, search, and update all person information. Yes we expect there to be many desktop applications that "sync" with the new FamilySearch using the FamilySearch API....

You are right that if you are going from a child to the parents, the child's connection to the mother can take care of deciding which of Jacob's wives to show. I was going to propose a test, but I think I just disproved my own case. I went to my favorite record for Jacob, PID 5K4C-VT7 in 'pedigree w...

New FamilySearch data model

Is there any possibility at some point for an article (maybe along the lines of the article about the Distributed Nagios eXecutor) about the data model of the new FamilySearch? Knowing a little of the behind-the-scenes stuff can help make better sense and promote better use of the front-end stuff. F...

Person ID vs. numeric manid and womanid

In the new FamilySearch beta, every person is tagged with one or more (for combined records) "Person ID"s that contain letters and digits and a hyphen every four or so characters. Also, when navigating in Family Group Record mode, I have noticed that in the links to go from one family to another, th...

I don't know what's planned, but I think there needs to be "defaults" that are displayed, and then personal preferences everyone can set up to override defaults. For example, Say there are 3 possibilities for the father of person A. The system (using whatever method) marks possibility 1 as the defa...

What kind of feedback is wanted?

Tom, I have one suggestion: What kind of feedback are you wanting? Are you looking for a technical review of the work flow diagrams? Or, are you looking for a review of the writing of the article? Are you looking for suggestions for improvement of the system? Are you looking for volunteers to help w...

We will be presenting a review of CrossOver (about the same price as Parallels) in the April issue of macCompanion magazine (I own and publish it) but I found this today - If you have a MacTel and CodeWeaver's CrossOver, PAF works - http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/browse/name/?app_id=267 F...

Probably you'd need more rights then the ward is currently giving you to do that function. But you might try some testing with the clerk and the stake to see if that will do the trick. If it does, then it up to them to come up with a procedure that works for everyone. Thanks for the suggestion. By ...

Another suggestion: project to clean up Biblical generations.

Another suggestion I just made through "Send Us Feedback" is to consider an official, sanctioned project to do merging and cleanup of Biblical generations. A check in the beta system of people from Adam and Eve to the 12 sons of Jacob/Israel seems to show a huge number of duplicates back this far. W...
