Need help on data error 572 suggestion [closed]

+4 votes

I've had a couple of data error 572s lurking for a while and am not sure how to deal with them. One of them is for this profile - Clementina Hay Duff -  but the problem is the same for both so I'll just ask about this one! The grave I've referenced is for Andrew Hay, Clementina's brother, but it has a mass of genealogical detail on it, including names and relationships of family members. I've left a comment the error report to this effect, but of course that means the 'error' will never go away. Would  it be appropriate to mark it as a false error, with an explanation, or is there some other way of dealing with it? Or should I just remove the link? (I'd rather not do this because it has such a good lot of info!)

In short, the FindAGrave link you are using is for another person, not the person represented in the profile. In this case, reviewing the Links to FindAGrave page, the correct way to add this type of link would be through a template:


The sameas=no parameter tells the system that the FindAGrave profile is for another (related) profile, but is being used to provide information for this profile.

Once you add that to the profile of Clementina (Hay) Duff, you can then mark the error as Corrected!
