Avoiding continuing with unnecessary ordinance work following a someone else's merge
About 2 weeks ago, someone (properly) merged the person I had in process with a similar person from their research (who already had all individual ordinances done). They had not shown up previously (to me) as possible duplicates, so I must assume that they added info to their entry which made my person show up to them as a possible duplicate.
Fortunately, I just noticed that "my" person had disappeared from my reserved list. but I still have the paper ordinance slip and would have continued the ordinances during the next couple of months if I had not checked (I recently did the baptism/confirmation).
I would like to request the courtesy of an automatic notification from Family Search (something like "Ordinances no longer necessary" or "Ordinance work already complete") to the person/people who have made reservations which are no longer necessary.
This is not the first time this has happened to me, so I must assume it will happen again. I regularly carry over 100 reservations, so I won't always notice when one disappears.
