      Congratulations Gaylon!!!

      I know that FamilySearch has been pretty particular about how things work before allowing certification on any level. I'm sure you have put a lot of work into this. Kudos!

You will also only see one of each of the LDS ordinances -- you will no longer be able to see a complete list of all the duplication of ordinances. If Family Tree has additional names, you can click on a link to see the other names.

This button will provide this information as long as FamilySearch allows AQ to read the New.FamilySearch data. Their current estimate for this is the end of this year.

Sometimes it is the information that is NOT shown that will help you know whether your record matches the FamilySearch record. So again, this new build of AQ allows you the option to see the data from nFS.

Even though AQ now updates Family Tree rather than nFS, it is not yet certified with Family Tree until it has this Merge feature. We hope to get AQ certified with Family Tree very shortly as we complete this Merge, and make it available in a new build.
