I’m just curious

Is this new? = "Missing Vital Event" being "The person does not have at least one vital event that contains a year".

Is this new?

'Research Help'.

- 'Research Suggestions'.

- - "Missing Vital Event"
= "The person does not have at least one vital event that contains a year"

I created two (2) new individuals / persons, a Father and a Mother, from a a Child's "Christening" record; and, the above appeared on the "Person / Details" page / screen for, both, the newly created Father and Mother.

And, 'Yes", I created them without any Details except the Names.

The Child was born in 1902; and, initial research did not indicate that the Parents were already in "Family Tree".

This is the first time I have seen this "Missing Vital Event"; whereas, I have seen "Missing - Birth and Death" details in the 'Research Help'.

Just curious!?

  • I'd been wondering if I'd not noticed this before but, yes, it must have been introduced in the last day or two.

    For those who complain that FamilySearch seems to never responds to posts and never fixes anything, this is a good example that, yes, they do and that when issues are truly simple they can take care of them reasonably promptly.

    I just tested this out. This rephrasing of the previous Research Suggestion that appeared where there was no birth date but there was a christening date or if there was no death date but only a burial date now only appears when none of those dates are present. You can now enter just a christening date and not have the suggestion appear.

    I sometimes get concerned for the morale of the FamilySearch programmers since they are so rarely thanked when user requested improvements like this are instituted.

      Many of us have no hesitation with "Thanking" and "Praising" the "Programmers" ( collectively, "FamilySearch" ) in such circumstances.

      But, it would be nice to be informed when Flaws / Faults / Suggested Enhancements ( ie. User requested improvements ), have been applied / implemented. ( Of course, available "Resources" will always be the cause for not being informed. )

      Question: Have the past unnecessary "Hints" been removed; or, does it only cover those from the time the "Fix" was applied / implemented?

  • I notice this new feature has done noting to improve the situation whereby a burial is not treated as a death, for purposes of data warnings. Please see my comments via Gordon's link (above) and view another example of the problem at https://www.familysearch.org/tree/ped....

    The Death field still has to be completed to avoid the data warning.
