A dream modify... The Search to include a w-source feature & gather more data
I don't believe this method of name collection is working effectively anymore. The best names with the most data (parents, etc), are ranking next to single name entries (no parents).
Dates & names can be changed. & after so many people have made actual site visits to courthouses, graveyards, that's disheartening.
1) Google style: We need a search that runs thru all the major genealogy sites and gives the highest priority to the most source data, then, if no source exists, majority of consensus upon the most detailed info, the closest popular spellings, and appropriate time ranges, would seem to speed up the process adding names.
It's just an effort, that can be too easily edited or even deleted.
A collaboration as a multiple site gathering, like a google harvester for a few big sites, like wiki, geni, peerage, etc.
& for rare 1 name only entries, perhaps be able to list them on their own, or at the bottom of the listings.
I believe yesterday I moved children around and could have even lost a few into the search-lookup-&-find them again process.
Otherwise, people could feel they're just wasting their time.
2.) Sources: Meanwhile, my quicker search suggestion to implement:
"names with sources only" or "names with sources given highest priority". & a small source icon for each result.
3.) Duplicates: I could run thru duplicates & merge, but there's no list page (or pop-up) of current duplicates to rift thru for the starting person back into history.
It's still a great site, I just want it to be capable of the potential of our time.
Thank you for listening, please pass on to your tech crew.😀
