Bring back Stories to Memories PLEASE
Taking away the ability to share family oral history (stories) takes away something that made familysearch unique and awesome. Sites that simply show names, dates, relationships and attached records are common. What made this site great was the opportunity to share those stories with other family members. That is the key difference between genealogy and family history. As time marches on, those stories that connect us disappear. Your heart doesn't turn to your ancestors simply because you know what year they were born.
Plus, as a longtime contributor, it is frustrating to think of those many hours of collecting and entering in those stories are now are lost due to this new (NOT awesome) format. For example, I spent several hours deciphering and transcribing stories I found that my father had written about his childhood memories of growing up in a children's home (orphanage) during the Great Depression, or of collecting scrap metal in high school so he could earn a nickel and go to the movies to see the next installment of the serial he was watching. I entered that in because my nieces and nephews and their children and my own children never knew him. These stories brought him to life. Not all families are tight knit where those stories can easily be shared and as the number of generations increase, those stories get lost. How many stories that were thought to be preserved are now lost with this new version?
