Correcting Ord. data
Some persons, especially it often happens to those born long ago, who have Ordinances completed also long ago, now have problems where some original dates are missing. Example is when the computer insists that Baptisms and Confirmations are missing yet all the rest of the ordinances are complete and dated. We know that if an Endowment was done that the B/C were also done...usually just prior so why do it again?
I was told that often the dates go missing when merging etc has been done over the years, and that when you eventually join the person this would get fixed. HOWEVER, this is not always the answer. So my suggestion is to program your computers to locate these problems and either find the correct dates or just put completed so others will not feel the work needs doing....again.
My husband found one of these and (without me knowing) re baptized and confirmed one of these people. A pure waste of time. If the computer cannot locate these problems and fix them, then make a way for 'us' to do it.
Look at Johann Ulrich Ackermann GXVS-6S3 Ordinances
Walter Ackermann MRL6-MRL to see what I am talking about.
