How can OneGreatFamily help improve my genealogy records?
by Chelsea Beattie - Marketing Manager
It's springtime! That means it's time for members of OneGreatFamily to clean their family trees with the help of others! Spring cleaning can often be a task that takes a great amount of time and effort, but not at OneGreatFamily. Our spring cleaning is easy and requires a small amount of time on your part. "Cleaning" your family tree is important because it adds value to the genealogy research you have already done and improves your ability to find more information through the matching and merging process at OneGreatFamily.
Sometimes users submit data to OneGreatFamily that contain errors. OneGreatFamily is good at showing where potential errors exist by showing where alternate information is available for the same person. This makes finding potential errors easy. Many submit erroneous information to OneGreatFamily, not understanding perhaps that OneGreatFamily's system works best with accurate information. Matching and merging isn't likely to take place on information that is incorrect.
Researchers should take some time to make corrections themselves as they identify mistakes. The first step is determining where the relationship, spelling, or event is incorrect. Next, you should take some time to analyze the problem. Finally, when you are certain where the error exists, you should edit the information. Remember that when you fix an error in one place within OneGreatFamily, everyone else immediately benefits from your effort. Fixing errors in OneGreatFamily can help the system provide higher quality matches and can help other researchers who have "tied into" your research. Remember that your changes don't affect the information that is displayed for the person who originally submitted the data. Rather, your changes create a conflict and make alternate information available for that person to now review. After reviewing your new information, other researchers can choose to accept or reject your changes.
When "cleaning" your family tree, you can gain comfort and confidence as you find and correct errors that you may have introduced to OneGreatFamily. By someone taking the time to fix an error in one place, everyone else who is interested in that piece of information can now see the correction. This demonstrates how the quality of the information found at OneGreatFamily improves with each passing day.
