Duplication in Memories and Sources
Duplication in Memories and Sources are just terrible. Probably 30% or more is duplication. For an example, go look at my relative Edmund Lovell Ellsworth 1819-1893 KWNK-QMM and see all the duplication in pictures. I have many relatives that are just the same as Edmund’s Memories.
With the computer technology we have now, you would think FamilySearch could come up with ways to stop it. At least put a flag notification to check to see if it is already there before adding to Memories or Sources. I use “Notifications--- Changes to People You Follow” and when I see duplication and email them about it, they do nothing about it. That system does not work.
It would be wonderful if the programmers and computer technology could stop this duplication. It would also free up a lot of space on FamilySearch computers.
