Erroneous Find a Grave DB Error?

+5 votes

When I check my Suggestions, I see two Find A Grave 572 errors, but I don't see what the difference is that's triggering the suggestion. For example, Barbara Burger's name and birth/death dates seem to match what's in FAG. Is there a problem I'm missing, or should I mark the error as false?

I believe there were some ‘false’ suggestions in the latest report as the details of working with the new FindAGrave site are being flushed out. I’m waiting until next week to address mine.

Correct FindAGrave completed there cut over to the new site format but the source files that we (Wikitree+) were using to compare hadn't been updated when the 'Suggestions' Report was run last week - so there are/were more 'Suggestions' reported than there actually are.  The recommendation is at this stage just ignore any FindAGrave Suggestions untill next weeks report is run
Excellent, thanks for your answer!

Maybe its the "uncertain" in the birth date area. Usually if you have a day, month and year for a date, it is not uncertain. With the FAG memorial maybe you can now mark it as "certain" and elimate the error. (Same for "about").

That sounds like a good idea, but now I notice that in my other erroneous suggestion, both the birth and death dates are marked as certain. Again, the dates and her name seem to match. Hmm...

Could it be the order - Maretta Jane Smith (Kelsey) vs Martha Jane Kelsey Smith?

Humm Wikitree format is Maretta Jane (Kelsey) Smith or Maretta Jane Smith formerly Kelsey, and FAG is Maretta Jane Kelsey Smith which are actually saying the same thing, Kelsey is LNAB or maiden name. 

I would mark it as false error.
