Merges need to be monitored Just like photos
Please, Please, Please
I have suggested this many times: The largest part of the messes in FS Family Tree are caused by improper merges. I see merges with the same name, birth years but many years difference in the death year. I ran into a person merging 3-4 individuals that I questioned why he was merging definitely unique individuals. His answer was to merge to get the right information?????? And asking what I meant by unique individuals. He found another person to help him "fix" the situation who was not much more knowledgeable and didn't understand unique people. The family is not quite right and got belligerent with me for trying to fix things. When turning him in for abuse, I was told it was not. Obliviously just under the radar. I then removed my real name and personal email contact, stopped relationship viewing and blocked him to protect myself.
That means Record Hints from merged ancestors are being attached incorrectly. In Utah it was acceptable to have multiple wives and children at the same time. Not in Pennsylvania with the Mennonites. It's bad enough that one family gets messed up, but then it compounds to the previous generation and the following generations.
This is being compounded by youth as early as 8 being set free in Family Tree. They are not monitored, mostly because their parents have no concept of what Family Tree is about.
***In a previous comment I made, the inmates are taking over Family Tree. Pretty soon there will be very little validity especially in the earlier years.
Youth should not be allowed to do merges
Newbies to FT should not be allowed to do merges
When merges are done, like photos need to be review before allowed to complete.
If it is not a viable merge, the person should be notified as to why.
If someone finds a messed up family, there needs to be knowledgeable individuals to fix that family and while being corrected-stop any more merges.
I know the reply, who is going to do this!! If these steps are ignored, *** above will continue until it will take a millennium just to fix FT and another millennium to do what we should have been doing in the first millennium.
