    FYI.

    I did a fair bit of "Testing" with the other "Facts"; as well as, ALL the "Events"; plus, the "Alternate Names"; and, there did not seem to be any significant problems/issues - they all appeared to work as they should have.

  • Never understood the need for National Identification. This is from some submitters to Ancestral File and nFS.

    This tell us NOTHING.

  • National Id can be things like Social Security number (US), and related from other countries.

    "URGENT"

    I have just identified another "Doozy" ( ie. an extreme fault/flaw ).

    I thought I noticed this when I was "Testing" yesterday; but, I just considered it was my mind playing tricks on me ...

    But ...

    'NO' ...

    I confirmed that it was actually happening.

    I initially "Enter" and "Save" a "Customs Fact", no problems, all well and good.

    Then later, I want to amend or update the information in the "Customs Fact".

    No problems to "Assess" and "Edit" the "Custom Fact".

    Make my required "Amendment" and "Save" - All good to far.

    BUT ...

    When "Saved" the "Custom Fact", right before my eyes, that "Custom Fact" literally CHANGES to a "Custom Event" !!!???

    Never seen that one before.

    A real FAULT/FLAW.

    BUT ... wait ... it gets worse ...

    I just checked a number of the individuals/person in "Family Tree" where I has added "Custom Facts" prior to 5/6 September 2018; and, 'lo and behold' ...

    ALL those "Customs Facts" have been CHANGED to "Custom Events" !!!???

    NO, NO, NO ... NOT ACCEPTABLE !!!

    ps: Started a NEW Post.
    • Joe

      It would appear, that the first part, of this "Reply", in my post, has been addressed/fixed.

      I have just "Accessed"; "Amended"; plus, "Saved", a "Custom Fact"; and, that "Customs Fact" that was "Saved" stayed/remained as a "Custom Fact"; and, did not "Change" its "Type" to a "Custom Event".

      'Thank You' personally for you assistance in that matter; and, please 'Thank' all the relevant "Team" in "FamilySearch" who were responsible for that "Fix" in that matter being so swift.

      I only hope the second part, of this "Reply", in my post (and my subsequent new post, as a separate matter), about ALL those "Customs Facts" that where added prior to 5/6 September 2018 having been CHANGED to "Custom Events", can be addressed and fix, ASAP.

      I do not know whether to go through all the countless individuals/person in "Family Tree", with whom I am associated, who I have added "Custom "Fact[s]", prior to 5/6 September 2018; and, address/fix the problem/issue myself; or, wait!?
