FAG list of errors

+4 votes
Why do we get offered an error list for our profile when many are Find A Grave that do not match?  FAG entries are either valid or not. Gravestone photos yes. Sourced, yes.  Confirmed by other data , yes.  Just people's remembered details,  no.

Just offered for research purposes - OK, but I want a zero error list and I don't want to have to go through all these Find a Grave entires to reaffirm why I chose not to use their dates.

Just mark them as false error and they go away for good.

Hi Susan,

About a week ago there was a very involved Question on this topic.


From this discussion,  I decided it's a very involved topic that might not have a quick solution.   Coupled with the fact that just last weekend there was a  "Project" to have volunteers clean up the Find A Grave suggestions,   I decided to take Doug McCallum's recommendation.   I would rather not have someone unfamiliar with my profiles  quickly add the Find A Grave info..... because I've found too many errors, even with the information clearly visible on the headstone photos.

I'm sure the suggestions report will evolve.
