Understanding Family History Activity report

#1

Post by alexja »

I am not sure if the YTD is cumulative or not. For example, converts from march 2018 to march 2019. If one convert from a ward goes to the Temple with their own names, will that convert count in the report until the next year or just for that month?

I am attaching a sample.

I'm sure "YTD" is "Year To Date" which would be cumulative from Jan 1.

If you can access Leader and Clerk Resources at lcr.churchofjesuschrist.org then you will see last year YTD in grey as well as the green current one..
It is located under Reports > Family History Activity Report

(-I know it is an old question)

Hi,

I am stake temple and family history consultant. I have a ward consultant that is claiming that the FHAR is not correct. To prove it to me, she did a list of 12 youths with whom she had worked and for which she had printed a personal card to go to the temple andtold me :2 look at the report, the report says only 9.

Recently i was helping one of this youth to index and i took the time to have a look at her family tree, and the tree was empty. The word consultant had printed a namethat familysearch had send the name to that young woman. Is that the reason why it was not in the report? I do hope it doesn´t count, because if not, it will not push the ward consultant to help members to find their own instructor.

Aebrown is our resident expert on that report. Based on this post, I'd say the fact the tree was empty is the problem. They system had no way of knowing the youth was working on their family history. Doing temple work, yes. But it's a family history report, not a temple report. However, it sounds like most of the tree is already there - the youth just needs to add enough living individuals (such as parents) to link them to the first deceased ancestor in each line and everything will magically appear.

From other discussions, another metric for family history is how much of the 4 generations is filled in. So, getting the youth to add parents, grandparents and great-grandparents should also be a goal. This should go a long way to solving the Activity Report issue.

If the ward consultant printed the name, most likely FamilySearch credited it to him/her. How did the young woman share the name with the consultant – did the young woman use the "Share" feature on FamilySearch, or did she print the cards herself as a PDF, then send the PDF to the consultant to print?

What is the definition of 'Submitted a name' on the Family History Activity report. Is the definition the number of members who added a name to their family tree?

No. It's a name submitted for temple work. I'd suggest reading this post.
