    You will have your access soon enough and things will improve in accuracy over time. Errors happen and nFS will allow us the privilege to clean up decades of mistakes but it will take time!

    I know and I care ! I am listed as my uncle's son instead of my dad.

    Accuracy is important in all things whether it be the receipt for groceries, your taxes, your grades, the phone book, and yes even your family history,

    Things known to be in error should be corrected whenever possible.

    Inaccurate genealogy?

    Who cares? Who is going to know?

    If only this stuff was accurate. I know all to many who do sloppy work and have a family tree that is inaccurate. I hope this improves but it is a little sad people wish so much and try to make it all come true with little evidence.

    The church wants to give us access, the problem is that there are so many of us that we would quickly swamp all resources and "ruin" the system. They are trying to do the roll out in a measured way so as to make the process as successful as possible and not turn people away because of crashes and such. Be patient, they will get it to us as soon as they can.

    I should have stayed where I was living for another year as then I would have access to the new Familysearch NOW. Not being able to get into it is slowing my work down. I have to go to a FHC usually the one in SL to do the research. I was there recently and had cards printed only to learn when I got home that the work had already been done for 3 of my ancestors. All that had be done by me in another temple district.

    Let the people here in the valley have access to the new familysearch. We are from all over the world and the work that we have been doing is just as important as the work on the plains and east coast.

    One important feature is missing from the New Family Search. There should be a "pop-up" screen which questions if you really want your grandmother "Nellie" to be listed as male. There are way too many records with obviously incorrect gender identifiers - which pose problems in sealing ancestors.
