Family Search users directed to send thankyous
Once again, apparently, at some place in Family Search, people are being directed to send thank you notes to people who have contributed on their lines and with whom they share a lineage. I thought this practice had ceased. It is a nuisance to me as a recipient.
This fills my box with notes from people I don't know. They don't know how our lines merge; nor do I. IMO, it is like telling a child s(he) has to write a thank to grandma for the underwear she sent you for Christmas.
If people are sincerely grateful for specifics and opt on their own to write a thank you or begin a discussion with a person on their line, that is welcome. But for familysearch to basically tell people they need to send a 'thank you' because someone contributed on their line really doesn't help me the recipient in any way.
Please, familysearch. STOP!
