My notes are going out raw, so excuse any issues like making sense or not.
Elements of a Community Record
Digitally born records, those that were created on a computer directly. Identifying family relationships in various records across different databases.
This is a more expansive view of the types of information being stored online about an individual or family.
The final element of this global way of looking at records. Creating a source authority with links directly to the archive.
You can likely review this entire presentation on a shared community of records. Jay puts in a plug for having all of this in an open source system and not a proprietary system. FamilySearch has a number of very large and influential partners in this new open system. brightsolid, Archives.com, Geni, Ancestry.com, FGS, to state few.
I strongly suggest that you review this presentation if at all possible. The presentation closes with a very entertaining sketch showing how records and research can be collaborative across the Internet in a variety of applications across the world.
Only the begging, more to come
