Check for Changes:
- Hello Group:
Does anyone know why I would be getting an unusual amount of hits when I "check for changes" over the past week?. There appears to be no visible change on most of the records listed as being changed. My best guess is New Family Search is messing with the data base which causes the change.
As an enhancement, it would be nice to be able to identify individuals by using the control key to highlight them to be cleared or marked as having been reviewed instead of having to do it one by one.

often I get a lot of changes about half of which I can't see any
difference. Lately I've been using find and replace to hunt down all the
unstandardized abbreviations, contractions, misspellings in the place names
I've been seeing as I've been sysncing people so there's been a lot of
changes on my end. AQ will fix standard abbreviations but does not fix Co
or Co. or Colo. to Colorado, only CO for example. Or some knot head who
abbreviated all the counties and some other places by removing all the
vowel.. Or plain miss spelling of some of the harder states like
Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, I've found several different variations of
place names. It would really help a lot if there was an option to download
the standardized place names or at least edit them. Otherwise you have to
go back and found the people late when you have been sysncing a group of
people or a family. I've been scribbling RIN numbers all over sheets of
paper to go back and find people who have data which need to be fixed.

repetitive click and select motions. I would also like to be able to sort
by the columns, they look like you can but nothing happens when you click
