Volunteer Groups - Entered Non-Standardized Dates and Places
I've observed several different types of "Volunteers Groups" making posts to my families in Family Search.
Their willingness to volunteer is much appreciated, however, I would appreciate it if they could take the time to (1) use standardized date and places. . . . and (2) not change already-standardized items. . . to non-standarized dated and places.
In my case, many of my ancestors were immigrants who came to the United States in the 1800s for religious reasons. Many of my ancestors or relatives have been in 4-generation projects, Ancestral File, Pedigree Resource File, New Family Search, Family Search, and the IGI.
I have made an effort to go thru my many relatives in FamilySearch to standardize date and places.
To my surprise, I am finding duplicate census records (or other sources) have been entered, and the (1) place names and (2) dates have become NON-standardized.
I would not have expected that I've have the need to "watch" for this to happen/correct.
I cannot possibly "watch" all the entries that I have made in FamilySearch.
Are these new entries being made via a data upload (vs one by one)?
I would very much appreciate having "new" or duplicate sources entered in standardized format (dates and places) .
