roberternestjenkins1 roberternestjenkins134m agoI have uploaded close to 4000 pdf files, to the proper person in my tree. I have close to that many more to go. These all represent a lifetime of work by my mom, dad, and aunt. I've not uploaded any of the old temple cards, with the completed temple information on them (that's almost another 1000 by themselves!). Most of the files I've uploaded are family group records, then pedigree charts, letters, photos, and lots of misl. notes. All have valuable information that others can use.
Recently i was told that a few of the family group records were not acceptable for uploading to Family Search. I can only guess that there are a very few that might have a date on it, associated with temple work.
It was at this point I realized there could be hundreds of files like this! I can't imagine the work it would take to undo all that I've done, and I'm only about halfway there. More importantly, removing these records because of a couple of dates means removing all of the other useful/important information on that file. That does not make sense!
So my recommendation is this: create a tool that acts just like the tool used for saving a document (move the box to the upper left-hand corner, with the mouse hold down the green dot and drag it to the lower right-hand corner, click save). Using the same tool, cover the information that needs to covered and when you click on the green dot it leaves a white square or rectangle. That way whatever information needs to be covered, but all the rest of the page remains for others to read.
It runs counter-intuitive to remove whole documents with information that may not be found anywhere else, because a small portion is not allowed.
Please consider this and pass along to whoever needs to read it. Gathering Israel on the other side of the vail requires important information.
Thanks for listening!!
