I'm not able to see the distribution of people in my branch. When I open "Places: State & County Resources, " it shows two US maps but the numbers do not match my branch (I suspect they are yours, Ray; 18467 in North Carolina - I don't have that many people in my branch and only 14 in North Carolina). I've tried selecting my branch on the seach function on State& County page but it does not change the maps/numbers.
I've notice the past few days that the FamilySearch site no longer has the images available for many of the census years. Does anyone know if this is a permanant situation? There is just so much information available on the actual census form than is available in the summary.
For the last couple of days I get the following message; for every new entry, even though I've already done that, with sources.
"When possible, please always try to put in at least a speculated birthdate, based on dates of relatives, and a birthstate. This aids duplicate checks, feasibility checks, and finding new relatives. Read More"
Find A Grave rolled out their new format today and this site no longer recognized the URL in the current format. For example, the old format was: https://old.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=11785103 the new: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/11785103/thomas-oregon-king
At the moment, there's an option to use the old format but I don't imagine that will last.
I've occasionally received answers from this feature along the lines of "cousins, 3 times removed" (note, no number for the cousin). I got such an answer today when I was checking on a relationship but, upon examining the linages, I realized the person was my great, great uncle, not a cousin. The details are here: www.ourfamtree.org/relate.php?relate=443437&id2=443256
You can see John William Ramsey and Fidelia I Ramsey are siblings, so John is Ernest's uncle, James' great uncle, and my great, great uncle. Is there a simple fix for this?
I've had this come up a couple of times - occasionally I'll have the full date for a birth but just the year for the death. When these are in the same year, an error message comes up when you try to save "Error in date sequence ..." Can the error checking be adjusted to allow this situation?
I have a woman Esther Bacon who died in 1880 a month after the 1880 census was recorded. When I try to add 1880 census details through the Edit Census popup, it does not provide a check box for her (I presume because of her death that year) and subsequently deletes the 1880 Reside data and the census source from her record.
