Re: [FHCNET] Bridging the living gap in NFS
- The new system allows multiple records for a given person. The
records are linked together to show that all these submissions are in
fact all the same person even if not all the information agrees.
Keep in mind even if you did summit the temple information, PRF, AF,
you may not be able to update it. It's too hard to go back and verify
that the submitter is in fact the nFS user. So there will be a number
of "unowned" records.
If you submit a record to nFS, you own it. You can link
(relationship) to another, or you can submit one of your own and then
link that (same person) to the other record.
Either way, you can dispute the information that is there. You're not
stuck with that another person claims the truth is.
Others have indicated that your record will always show as primary for
you. So everyone is their own gatekeeper.
