Meaning of (M6F9-6C2)
Hello I have been researching my wife side of her family her grandmother name is Claire Cole When I search for her is shows Clair Coles (M6F9-6C2), Can some tell me what M6F9-6C2 means?
That is the Person Identification number (or "PID") for that record in the database and can be very useful in a number of ways. Sometimes when trying to find a particular record in the database in a hurry, if you have the PID number it can be very fast. The PID is unique in the database and lives forever. Even if a record is "deleted" or merged away, it can always be restored. Once a PID number is assigned to a record it will NEVER be used again on anything else.
If there were 15 "Claire Cole"s in the database, yours is uniquely identified as M6F9-6C2. By having this unique identifier assigned to each record in the database, you can track exactly what is happening to a specific record--especially since there are many records in the database that look like the same person but are NOT.0
