“Dealing With Difficult FamilySearch Family Tree Tasks & Temple Cards Not Returned”

Ron Tanner

Talk Abstract:
FamilySearch Family Tree was built to allow users to work together to build a common pedigree. Sometimes, in a community environment, a significant problem arises with data that needs careful consideration and correction. This session will discuss some of the difficult problems that may arise and how to correct them. Recently, Utah County and a few other temples are no longer returning recorded ordinance cards. Come and understand why and what you and FamilySearch is planning to help you make the transition.
