Re: [FHCNET] uncombine many records at once?
- Yes, but the kind of problems that we have been seeing discussed here most
often would not take any particular regional knowledge. It is the endless
loops, people with age ranges covering a couple of hundred years and the
obvious guesses in combining that can easily be handled by people with
experience in basic genealogical research principles. Even in my little FHC
we have staff with experience in locations ranging from England and
Scotland, Germany France and India, so within most temple districts there
should be a diverse group to choose from. And as I said, SL can always
provide backup and be a resource that the group can refer more difficult
decisions to. There is no reason why a particular question cannot get
shunted to a different location or to SL if needed.
