Follow-up to Glean What You Can....

This is a follow-up to my 1 Apr 2007 article "Better Glean What You Can Now BEFORE "new FamilySearch" http://rzamor1.livejournal.com/2007/04/01/

When I stumbled on the information for my second cousin's wife on the internet I was looking to fill out information on her in my database. Since I am LDS that includes wanting to have ordinance information. When I located her birth, death and parents names in the newspaper obituary I could then determine that the information earlier looked at on the IGI was indeed her.

It appears that the biggest problem people had with my earlier article is when I mentioned the future loss of living parents names on the IGI. I said: "That's really sad I want that information, especially when determining if temple work needs to be done or not." I think the key word here is DETERMINING as in making a decision if the temple work had been done. This was not with the intention of actually doing the work once that determination was made. There are many steps that need to happen before you actually SUBMIT names for temple ordinances. Collapse )
