New FamilySearch marches on

By September 28, 2009, the Provo Temple District, which includes all of the Student Wards and Stakes at Brigham Young University, will have full access to New FamilySearch. In addition, the Ogden Temple District is scheduled for its first Stake access on September 28th also. With these two Stakes going online, that leaves only the Mount Timpanogos Temple District in Utah Valley and the remaining Temple Districts in the Salt Lake Valley itself to get access.

As a user of New FamilySearch and in consulting with other users, I find that the increased activity from Utah and Idaho is having a pretty direct effect on the files. For example, during the past two weeks or so, two more copies of records concerning my own grandfathers have been added to the database. These new additions had to be combined with the existing records. It is apparent that the new people online are simply adding more names to the database without checking to see if the information is already in the file.
