1048Re: [AQ_NFS] Re: Summary Value
- Jul 28, 2012For those of you who have access to Family Tree (through
FamilySearch), the "Summary Value" is the value (i.e. the data) that
is displayed in Family Tree. The rest is hidden.
The purpose is to "kill" (from view, at least) the inaccurate data
that has accumulated over the years in newFamilySearch. While there is
no requirement to document the "value" selected, eventually the
documentation will help eliminate the "mythology" that now exists
without adequate documentation.
In Family Tree, when you add documentation is when it asks for the
reason that you believe it applies to the person. (Unfortunately,
that's not how I would do it, but rather support an entry with
documentation and why it was "more valid" than what was previously
displayed. This last approach was what we were told would be use, but
that was well over a year ago while we were on our mission at the
Family History Department in Salt Lake.
It is very important that the correct values / data be displayed when
Family Tree is finally fully implemented. It may be possible that
programs like AQ will allow us to continue to update the "Summary
Value" through its interface with newFamilySearch/Family Tree.
