A genealogy post that is long overdue… Happy Father’s Day Dad!
This is a long overdue post that I have kept putting off when the thought of writing it has entered my mind over the years. As the most recent urge to record my thoughts coincided with Father’s Day it really was no longer an ...

Copying this from MwM 23 May 2016 to the community in order to get notifications of any replies:

Re: my mention of the UK site: deceasedonline.co.uk, I have more information, and a problem. They transcribe the burial register (which is why they can provide scans) whereas the NottsFHS (Nottinghamshire Family History Society) CD contain headstone/monument inscriptions. I have found a case where they differ. A grave contains a male ancestor plus his 1st and 2nd wives. The headstone is correct, and I can prove it, but the register has his 2nd wife's name the same as his 1st. I have asked deceasedonline if they have a notes field to include such details, if I can prove them, because they must be true to the register. I have also contacted the relevant city council as they are responsible for the cemetery information. Any suggestions?

I do agree they should be able to add a notes/comments field.

You mentioned a personal research checklist on the 12-30-2015 Research Tools video and I cannot locate it. I thought it was posted on FamilySearch Wiki. Did you have it for sharing?

We are going to demo the FamilySearch Pilot Indexing Tool (for Chrome browser). It's just what we need to index non-FamilySearch online images, as well as those images in browsable format only at FamilySearch.org. Integration of the Pilot Indexing entries with FamilySearch Record Search is slsated to be accomplished within the year.

PS - I know the set up for this hangout says Mac Family Tree, but I am out of contact with the company rep, and we'll have to save that discussion for a later date.
