Hello list(s), and Larry Lalonde
I thought you might like to know this..
The 'IGI' file of the Mormon church accuracy is only as good as the origanal
records allow there 'IGI' files are copied from origanal records in
churches, and government offices around the world. there copied by church
members first from microfilm copies of the record to hand written copies,
then checked by another group of persons.. Now they are entered on to the
computer data base by a third team of persons and check by a fourth.... The
'IGI is a record of the person or persons the living church members baptize
in to the church after they are dead.
You can not fix erorrs in the 'IGI'
Now as for the 'AFN' files these file are sent to the chuch by both members
and non members so others can see there information.....
The 'AFN' files Can Be Corrected... how ever the origanal erorr will stay in
the database I think as I have nerver seen them removed after correction..
However you do get the Name and Address for the person that submitted the
information in the 'AFN' files.

the accuracy sucks. I am not sure if you can even change the incorrect
information that they already have on line.
