Can the "temple opportunities" features be verified?
I recently answered this email to FamilySearch. I felt I should pass it on.
I recently accepted a Temple Opportunity to do Initiatory, Endowment and Sealing to Parents of Sarah Ince 9X7Y-286. Foolishly, I did not check this was a valid submission, which I usually do, and just accepted she was related to me and I must have overlooked her. I now discover, (having just completed her endowment) that she is a duplicate of Sarah Ann Ince ,MZHT-Y9W, whose Temple work I have already completed, and for whom FS had added a christening source, which confirms her full name. I am kicking myself for wasting time doing unnecessary ordinances, when there is so much valid work needs doing. I should haver checked it all out. But Family Search, there must be lots of less experienced patrons accepting these Temple Opportunities offering what turn out to be duplicates, without knowing they need to check, thus adding to the already existing problem of duplicated submissions. I think the Temple Opportunity feature needs to be reviewed in light of this. PLEASE ! Kind regards, Christine Chadwick
