A Response to Last Week's Too-Too Thursday

Last week's Too-Too Thursday I wrote about the worst indexing mistake ever! And unfortunately had to attribute it to FamilySearch. A shame, because as one of their indexers, I know the process they go through, and they are pretty darn accurate.

Here was their response:  "FamilySearch Indexing has left a new comment on your post "Too-Too Thursday - The Worst Indexing Mistake Ever...":

Wow! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We looked and found it was the arbitrator who changed the information. That individual hasn't made that mistake more than this one time. We can only assume it was a mistake of a keystroke or something just as easy to miss.

These are the types of mistakes that we try to catch before publishing our indexes. We'll do our best now to keep this situation from happening in the future. As for the past, we don't know how long it will take to fix it, but we'll get to work on it. "

In all my blog posts, I pretty much fry They have never responded. Thanks FamilySearch!
