Monday Mailbox

The Ancestry Insider's Monday MailboxDear Readers,

I am trying an experiment, starting today. I have set up my publication schedule so that newsreader, Twitter, and Facebook posts occur at 9:00 AM, Mountain Time. Newsletters will be delivered starting at 11:00 AM, Mountain Time.

I hope this schedule proves more convenient for you.

Signed,

Dear FamilySearch,

I want you to know that I will continue to write the Ancestry Insider column only on my own time, which is primarily on weekends. I schedule publication in advance, which is why you’ll now receive emails during the middle of the work day. Don’t worry; those emails were authored prior to that time.

It also bears reiteration that I have established a Chinese wall between me, the FamilySearch employee, and me, the Ancestry Insider. The Insider only knows what has been stated publicly. This has confused coworkers a time or two, when the Insider appears to be clueless. Of course, the Insider is often clueless on his own accord.

Signed,
--The Ancestry Insider

  1. I must be clueless for years and years and years. I have gone to blogspot for a long time and don't fool with twitter and facebook. How much information have I missed. Signed dumb 60 year old.

    1. The articles are the same. It is only a matter of how you like to receive them.

  3. Hey Insider, This has nothing to do with this blog but I'm clueless about how to tell extracted vital records from submitted records. I thought once the sorting was done the things in "Records" was documentation from filmed sources. Maybe you could explain this again for a slow learner.

      Can you clarify what your question is?

  4. Hello Insider,
    Sometimes I wish that Chinese wall was made of Bamboo with good spacing so we could peer in and see how and what FS is working on.
