Talk:Find A Grave Index (FamilySearch Historical Records)

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A small part of this collection was originally published. Additional units will be added over a few weeks and the collection will grow as a result of those additions. 

It doesn't look like FamilySearch will publish all of the data in FindAGrave. Generally affiliates like FindAGrave grant us permission to publish sections of their website, not to replicate it. 

When we know more we will add details to the article. We may not get specifics about each section that is added to the collection.

Is this collection supposed to be everything FindAGrave has?  Everything since 2012?  Everything that begins with the letters A-C? FindAGrave has more than 104 million records, but the FamilySearch collection appears to have only 1,483,770 records.  It would be helpful to understand if the collection is being loaded by chunks, and if so, which chunks?  Some explanation should be made as to the discrepancy, and if the collection is expected to change over time (and if so, how).

FindAGrave still has many times more records than Billiongraves in 2015.  I'm disappointed by the number of errors in Billiongraves and will continue to use and support FindAGrave even if it's associated with Ancestry.com.
