      We just discovered a problem with the new 2.27 OI. While searching in the Addendum for the name Ila Pearson, Mary Pearson, and Mary Ellen Rencher I get the red sign with a frozen screen and these different errors:
       
      Unable to open <NA_SURK.015>
      Unable to open <NA_STDS1>
      Unable to open <NA_SURK.016>
       
      I'm sure if I had kept at it other errors would have shown up. I checked North American CD's (21-31) and under the pas folders. But I can not find these files anywhere.
       
      Does anyone else have this problem? The name Rogers came up fine. As do any names in the lower alphabetic that we've tried.

      That is true.  When I tell other librarians what we have done, they get
      excited. We have 5 computers networked together.  Four of them (166 mhz w/2
      gig drives and 17 inch monitors) were donated by a company to one of it's
      imployees.  We took a collection to get a 45 gig drive and lan hub and we were
      in business.

      Some people have never even conceived what that can do from a speed standpoint
      and for a small library from an attendance standpoint. It makes using the
      library computers actuall fun when you do not have to change cds 5 times to
      get a descendant chart.

      Our stake is finally going to upgrade the stake center library.

        Ardean,

         

        It is Disk 28 of the Addendum for surname from NOR to ROA. This is very interesting, because I ran 1000 names through the TR WIN. It worked great but prompted me to insert Disk 28 in the CDROM drive for one name. I was able to cancel out and then it continued on reading off the hard drive fine.

         

        Too much of a coincidence for me. There must be a mistake on the disk.

         

        Would be nice if their was an FTP site to download a fix.

          Yes, it would be wonderful to have a FTP site to download fixes. We need one quick. As it sits, we can't use, the IGI, OI, or TR for any names on #28. And it just so happens that we had a patron tonight who wanted to make a TR file and 99% of her names were on that CD. I may have to revert to 2.26. But 1st tomorrow I'll try re-installing that disk and see if it makes a difference. I know those files are not on the disk 28 though so I don't expect any change.
           
          Thanks Rick, having it verified that it's not just our problem saves me a lot of time. I'm going to be out of town a lot for the next 3 weeks so I need to figure out what needs to be done quickly. I hate to leave them hanging.

            Rick,
             
            I re-installed Disk 28 & it's working fine. I re-installed it several times trying to see if it would glitch again but it's okay. But like you I find it strange that we both have had trouble with 28. It's something to keep in mind incase it shows up again. Those files I mentioned are not on the disk so it must be something that the program creates temporarily but for some reason couldn't do it until I re-installed.
             
            Thanks for the help.

            Ardean,

             

            It is Disk 28 of the Addendum for surname from NOR to ROA. This is very interesting, because I ran 1000 names through the TR WIN. It worked great but prompted me to insert Disk 28 in the CDROM drive for one name. I was able to cancel out and then it continued on reading off the hard drive fine.

            Subject: Re: [fhctech] Unauthorized networks numbers

             

            That is true.  When I tell other librarians what we have done, they get
            excited. We have 5 computers networked together.  Four of them (166 mhz w/2
            gig drives and 17 inch monitors) were donated by a company to one of it's
            imployees.  We took a collection to get a 45 gig drive and lan hub and we were
            in business.

            Some people have never even conceived what that can do from a speed standpoint
            and for a small library from an attendance standpoint. It makes using the
            library computers actuall fun when you do not have to change cds 5 times to
            get a descendant chart.

            Our stake is finally going to upgrade the stake center library.

              On the LDS-WARD-CONSULTANT-L email discussion group, someone said that
              the Church would be putting out policies for Family History Center web
              sites this week, probably today or tomorrow.

              If anyone gets their hands on a copy of the policies, please pass them
              along to the rest of us as soon as possible.

              Thanks!!

                Hi All:
                 
                About eight years ago, our FHC put up a web site and were told to take it down as it was contrary to [church and/or FHL, I know not which] policy.  My suspicion is that such a policy still exists.  If so, could someone point me to it, as I have been asked by our new FHC director about having a web site.  I would like to line up the facts, and this is the only one I am missing.
                 
                Thanks.

                    Attached is a PDF letter that the Church sent out way back then about
                    discontinuing local unit web sites.
                    It doesn't specifically mention the FHC, but it does mention "all
                    organizations" within a unit, which pretty much covers it.

                    This letter can also be found under lds.org by clicking on "Serving in
                    the Church" at the top, then in the resulting pop-out menu, click on
                    "Melchizedek Priesthood", then in the next web page, click on "Clerk
                    and Technology Support" and click on "Letters and Policies" at the
                    left.

                    OR, the shortcut is to go to this web addr: clerk.lds.org and then
                    click on "Letters and Policies".

                      I have found that "regional" FHCs like Ogden and Los Angeles have
                      them.. I can understand the Church wanting to avoid miscommunication
                      coming from an "official" site.

                      What I did 7 years ago was to make the statement at the bottom of
                      EVERY page that it was an unofficial website and the views and
                      opinions expressed only reflected the views of the author.

                      I also remember in 1997 Elder Perry telling us at a Stake Conference
                      that we should avoid the internet. Times change.. but if you DON'T
                      disclose doctrine and you put some disclaimer..

                      Many FHCs have email lists. That might be a better, safer, and easier way to go.

                      On FamilySearch it's possible to find FHC hours and contact
                      information... This can be tricky as I have noticed that the Ogden FHC
                      hours are different on their website and familysearch.org for example.
