What’s New on FamilySearch.org—May 13, 2014
Users Can Now Delete Legacy Disputes
A few years ago, FamilySearch.org
copied disputes from new.FamilySearch.org
into the Discussions feature in Family Tree. Those disputes are
referred to as “legacy disputes.” When they were copied into Family
Tree, the contributor of the dispute was listed as FamilySearch, and
the comments could not be deleted. Because information in new.FamilySearch.org
could not be corrected, most of the legacy disputes were comments
about what the correct information should be. Many of these legacy
disputes are no longer needed because users have already corrected
the information in Family Tree. Any user can now delete a legacy
dispute and the comments associated with it if the dispute no longer
applies. 1. To remove a legacy dispute and
the associated comments, go to a person’s details page. 2. Either click Discussions
or scroll down to the Discussions section.
3. Under Discussions, if there is a
legacy dispute, click Legacy
Disputes. 4. Click the Show Comments
link. 5. Read the comments for the legacy
dispute, and determine if they no longer apply (for example, if the
problem has been corrected). 6. Click the appropriate Delete link.
To delete the entire
legacy dispute, click the Delete
link below Legacy Disputes.
To delete only a
specific comment, click the comment’s Delete
The system asks if you are sure you
want to delete the comment or legacy dispute. 7. Click Yes. Warning: When you delete a legacy dispute, it cannot
be restored. Only delete the dispute if the information in the
dispute is no longer needed. Changes
to the Source Feature A couple of changes have been made
to the Source feature.
If more than 30
sources are attached to a person, the first 30 sources will be
displayed, with a More
link at the bottom of the list. To see the remaining sources,
click the More
The Source note field
size was increased to 10,000 characters.
