Different software and database. It does not reflect the changes made
through the familysearch.org tab. The data flow between the beta site
and the "live site" is one-way, toward the beta site.

So busy I need to make all my time count. So I don't always have time to do things that I will subsequently throw away - dead data.
Likewise, I was a beta tester while on my mission in the Family and
Church History Mission in Salt Lake, but not to worry, the changes
made in the beta version do not go back to the "live" data under NFS.

I suspect Gaylon is working with his own site to get all the software
into place to be ready when FamilySearch Family Tree goes "live". It
is my understanding that NFS will simply go away at that point as the
transition to the new data model will be complete.
>Wonder how we are going to add sources through AQ?
I couldn't get FamilySearch Family Tree to open up the sources for me
to add any, even under the test scenario. I suspect this feature has
yet to be implemented, but at least some of the features are there,
like an entry point for declaring why I believe the data that I've
either entered or edited to be correct. This new feature will go a
long way to establish the "correct" data with proper documentation.
That is a feature that would be nice to see in AQ, perhaps via the
"Family History without documentation is mythology." -- I don't know
who said it, but they are absolutely right on.
