Use of Hope Chest
William Haslem said: I am a family history consultant for our ward. Our Stake leaders have been advocating the wide-spread use of Hope Chest (formerly Pandora's Hope Chest) software. Many members have downloaded it and are very enthused about how easy it is to get hundreds of names for temple work. I realize that the instructions say that each name should be carefully checked for accuracy and for duplicates, but I get the strong impression that those instructions are being ignored by most members, especially those who have not been properly trained in Family Tree. If that behavior continues, there will be a lot of duplication of ordinances. I thought a purpose of Family Tree was to eliminate duplication. Shouldn't Family Search put out some instructions on this?
