How to keep your own research "in-tact" while still working in a COLLABORATIVE environment
The collaborative nature of FamilySearch -- is a hurdle to some new users and a legitimate concern for those seeking a solution to having total control over a "private version of the family tree" -- Familyearch just is not deigned for that paradigm
BUT I also think way too many people -- throw the baby out with the wash water -- for no good reason. (discontinue their use of FS when they feel it doesn;t give them the personal control they want in what they perceive as a "private family tree" [which it is not] )
THIS is an article I wrote about the subject
and this is one quote from the above link:
BUT one thing that I again and again go back to - is how much we can all so often leverage FamilySearch Memories - to not only preserve our own research - but preserve it in a way that even 10 years from now - it will still be in the same exact format that we left it.
In other words - how to upload versions of our research and documents - in ways that we don’t have to worry about others totally destroying or wreaking havoc on our documents - our research – our compilations - our family histories.
Way too many people don't perceive how FS Memories can be used to preserve in tact their own research compilations.
