“Family History: Changes Announced regarding Submissions to Ancestral File,” Ensign, Mar. 2003, 79
In anticipation of a new system that will better handle family history data, the Family and Church History Department asks members to hold their corrections for FamilySearch™ Ancestral File until the new system is in place.
In the interim, new family history information should be submitted to the Pedigree Resource File. Submissions will not be accepted for Ancestral File.
Information in the Pedigree Resource File, Ancestral File, and unprocessed submissions and corrections to Ancestral File will be incorporated into the new system when it is launched.
