thank you You have been very helpful
Nice update to your web-site. Thank you.
Was looking for the information you gave me some time ago in regards to my father's brother who is buried in NewMexico. He died after WW1 after contacting and suffering from TB. Where do I find what you found and sent to me: head stone/marker. ? .
Many thanks to everyone at Family Search for finding me such a wonderful past full more than I ever dreamed of.
Si es una hija natural a quien el padre reconoció pero no se caso con su madre por estar ya casado... a quien los sello?
Google Translate - Spanish to English: If she is a natural daughter whom the father recognized but did not marry her mother because he was already married... who did he seal?
If this involves living people, please see the local Bishop. For deceased individuals, please see the following Help Center articles:
Policy on sealing a deceased couple that were never married nor ever lived together
How do I seal a child to grandparents?
How do I know for sure Simpson L. Goodman is my great grandfather? Did Family search copy it from Ancestry.com or another persons tree? Where is the proof he is my grandfathers (Ellsworth Wesley Goodman) father? I need to read a document of some sort to prove the relationships. Too many trees are not accurate. People merely copy other members trees and they do not research for records etc.
How do I enter the missing date of birth of my great grandmother in my family tree

How do I change vital information in Family Tree?
Ever since you changed the format of your site to TRY and find information, I cannot find a thing. Nothing ever comes up. Before you did that I could always find things here. No more. I just give up!😣
Thank you Mr Nielsen, I have been trying for years, to find my mother's birth certificate. I have found she has had over a period of time, several different spellings of her name. Records showed me the different spellings. I just thought, would I need to check the five different spellings to, maybe get a possible record? I think for me, I just do not know which way to turn, in a situation like this. Thank you for your time, if you can help. God Bless all that you do, to help us folks, out here.
PLEASE, Make a way to delete names of people who need temple ordinances before being sealed to spouse and children. I have 10 children to be sealed to parents and parents don't have their ordinances performed yet., one spouse does and the other does not have their work done. I could do so much more if there was a way to eliminate them and replace them with those who are truly ready to take to the temple. I do try to help women to become ready, but I can't help the men. Please, help to correct the problem. A push button to remove those not ready would really help. Thank you for your help. Leone K. Hatch, North Logan, Utah.
Where can we find help when we are working in the U.S. 1950 Census. For example the only record that opens up has members of a family that began on the previous page??????

I m Maria Ines Salinas. I m from Argentina and I am building my family tree since 2020.
Today, I was trying to put the real name of my cousin Marisa Lucía Paget, but she appears in details with the father´s name.
Could you help me with this problem??

Me restringieron dos fotos. Una la eliminé, y la otra no entiendo porqué las restringieron, ya que es de Melisa Lucía Aguirre y esta vestida con una blusa color coral, sin tener nada en contra de la política de Familysearch. Ademas es foto la habia elegido para recortar su rostro como retrato de su perfil
Google Translate - Spanish to English: I was restricted for two photos. One I deleted, and the other I don't understand why they were restricted, since it belongs to Melisa Lucía Aguirre and she is dressed in a coral-colored blouse, without having anything against the Familysearch policy. It is also a photo of her, she had chosen it to cut out her face as a portrait of her profile
I have been struggling to find instructions for the 1950 census. I have made several mistakes on several pages and can't re-do them. I hate to send in anything that is incorrect or a mess. Please help me to find clear instructions. I used to do so much indexing but it's been a couple of years. How do the mixed up pages get fixed? I'd like to correct them myself so I can learn. I was trying to do family groupings but things started disappearing and I can no longer make corrections. So sorry to be a problem instead of a solver.
Thanks so much for any help you can give me. Lynne Van Cleave

Please visit the FamilySearch Community - 1950 US Census category. There are pinned announcements that can answer some of your questions and you can ask the remaining questions you have there.
This website leads you around in circles but results depend on someone else helping you through the maze. Missing big chunks such as in community, requires a lot of searching and scrolling.
In Community, if the main idea is to ask a question, then the question should be primary, it should be at the top! Step by step approaches help the beginner. I would like to see STEP ONE Search topic for previous answers STEP TWO didn't see what you are looking for? Click on ask a question ...THEN it should pop up and show your question in print in the line up so that you know that it was recognized by the system, and STEP THREE where and when to come back and find it. Will you be able to find it in your discussions? Then show where discussions are! Remind people to check back often, maybe a day and that professionals monitor the page questions. Step one, two and three should be instantly available to click on without having to go to another page. Groups and all that are extras and should NOT be at the top of the page! They are secondary. They can be on the side. Easy topics can be cutesy squares (tedious) Can you only have pertinent answers or best answers come to the top of the leads? Step by step is efficient. You can still have color and a little cute, but make the website functional and visually QUICK to see what you need without reading.
In Help Center-all the bubbles and boxes and lists are confusing, not helpful. Why are they there? Why are they different? The bubbles need to indicate more. The graphics take a whole lot of space and don't allow for instant information, they also make you scroll all over the place and spend a lot of time searching. Make it instant on one page if you have graphics. Help Center shows me nothing concerning temple ordinances that need fixing. Make it EASY.
Contact Us shows a HALF page regional map!!! WHY? Maps are usually to look at not click, it is cutesy not functional, if you like the map, make it smaller and have written choices. A whole page is TOO much! OR, at least, say STEP ONE (eye catching please) chose a region because, make it smaller than catching the eye that you have to click here. I automatically scroll past the map! It shouldn't demand you preform as it is NOT customary! Besides the instructions are small, the map looks cutesy. It wastes a lot of time scrolling.
Final thought...I have tried for hours, looked at all your tabs, made an appointment, talked to a consultant, tried to post a question in community and couldn't figure out how to do so even though I have figured it out before, posted questions in the search boxes, with no success to find a way to email a Family Group Sheet image to the website to have temple work corrected. I realize Family Group Sheets are old school, but I have thousands of them, and when the new computer program tried to merge with the old, a lot of information got deleted. Please help us find how to solve all those problems as we go through the handwritten records to fix and find all of those names. This merge will take a couple of lifetimes of mine to correct and this website gives no direction on how to do so. Maybe you could have a tab just for that? I have a hundred years of work that has to be redone. I don't have this kind of time to waste.
How can I delete information that is on my tree and it is totally incorrect. This is from someone else who I do not know.
Me preocupa que hay en ocasiones dentro de mis antepasados que están repetidos y si bien publicó el error no veo que se corrija. Gracias por la oportunidad de expresar mi situación. Saludos cordiales.
Google Translate - Spanish to English: I am concerned that there are times within my ancestors that are repeated and although he published the error I do not see that it is corrected. Thank you for the opportunity to express my situation. Best regards.

I am on my one with so much help you offer. Complicated, just complicated. I cant give up doing my genealogy but at the same time I am alone in this. Cant get help with so much help offer from you
Indexing 1950 Census and find on some pages the computer has missed or included the wrong individuals for a family. When I make the correction, I am able to continue for most of the page but I am taken to the next page before I have indexed all of the families on the page. If I indicate that the first person on the next page is not part of the last family on the page that I am indexing, I am not able to access the names that have not yet been indexed on that page. The result is that the families that have not been indexed are no longer accessible.
