I am in the Ogden temple district, and as a registered FH consultant we just got the letter saying that consultants in our district now have access so we can learn it. My cousin in Bountiful got the same letter.

I agree. nFS is absolutely the best thing that could have happened to
involve families who have been in the Church for generations. It was so
awkward and cumbersome to exchange information before -- export and import
GEDCOMs, then merge & combine duplicates in your own database and then
people just got lost -- that if they were really tech-savvy, otherwise
they'd give up much earlier. Now people can take control and even do some
research if they feel like something does not look accurate. Good luck,
Utah, and welcome aboard.

Company's coming - time to clean and straighten up nFS.
Seems like that is the task before us.

The UT areas will be coming on board soon and before you know it the world
will be looking in and starting to use nFS.

For the members of your ward that feel that their "genealogy" is done - have
them approach this is picking up and making sure that everything is ship
shape before the guests arrive.

Once they get to work and start sprucing up the names on their family tree -
and gaining experience examining the records on their recent/immediate
relatives - combing and making sure that they are in good order.... then
they'll be ready to tackle the next generation on back.

They;'ll feel comfortable combining the "obvious" ones .... and feel
cautious about combining the names that are less obvious .... "Mary ... born
1840 .... Ireland" ......

Then with everyone pitching in - combining and making sure the records are
pulled together - the database will start to look pretty good.

No, don't encourage them to start with their ancestors in the 1700s ... have
them start with their parents and grandparents - so they can build
experience and confidence. Help them move further back - with a family
history advisor at their elbow.

We can do this.
Company is coming - they'll be here before you know it.
Let's get everyone working on getting the house cleaned up.

My hunch is that by taking this approach we can give our ward members a
"task" a challenge that they can handle with confidence ... so that they
will then learn how to do genealogical research to fill in and extend the
data when they see the blank lines and missing people.
