The record referred to in the message is this one:
There are a number of things wrong with the entry for this person as shown by his Descendancy View"
The red exclamation point icons indicate that the birth year for the mother, Nancy Denham born in 1803 is after the listed marriage year of 1800. The child, Rebecca Gilpin, was also born before her mother, Nancy Denham Gilpin.
Aside from those problems, there are some other more serious issues (if the issues can get more serious) when we look at the message concerning the IGI (International Genealogical Index) extraction issue. Clicking on the link that says "Learn More" takes us to the following Help Center document:
The link to this article is https://familysearch.org/ask/salesforce/viewArticle?urlname=Dividing-incorrectly-combined-records-in-Family-Tree&lang=en.
Most of the article deals with the issue of incorrectly combined or merged individuals. I looked through the history for Ignatious Gilpin and did not see any evidence that his record had been combined or merged. However, there is nothing in the record to indicate that a wrong combination was not done previously in new.FamilySearch.org. It also appears that the source for the marriage, from the IGI, is attached to the correct person. If this is the case, then the dates for his wife, Nancy Denham Gilpin, must be wrong.
There is a note in the rather long Help Center article that says:
Note: Begin by researching and gathering as many facts as possible for each person. Identify which facts belong to the person represented in your family tree and which should be moved to another record. It is better to do the research and not guess before making changes.This is good advice at any time. The issue of the wrongly combined or merged record is corrected as follows:
An Incorrect Merge Is Corrected by Undoing the Merge in Family Tree or Creating a New Record for the Other Person.By this point, it seems clear that very few Family Tree users are going to be able to identify or rectify this type of problem. Trying to untangle this family, for example, is a major operation. The instructions in the Help Center article go on to explain the multi-step operation involved in cleaning up this entry.
If you determine that the records were incorrectly combined in new.familysearch.org, it will require the creation of a new person, unless someone else has already created a new record.
- To determine where a bad merge occurred, a user can examine the Latest Changes on the right side of the person's Details page. Click Show All Changes. The changes resulting from a merge are marked with a green box.
- See Undoing a merge (72004) and Restoring a record that was deleted after a merge (71934).
- This process will only be used if the bad merge occurred in Family Tree. If the merge is not shown in the Latest Changes, this indicates the records were incorrectly combined in new.familysearch.org.
Here is another quote from same article with even more interesting information:
Incorrectly combined records from new.FamilySearch.org, Ancestral File, and so forthHere is the crux of the whole article in this next statement to members:
Ancestral File was a database that listed the names and vital information of millions of individuals, organized into pedigrees. The information was taken from pedigree charts and family group records submitted to the Family History Department beginning in 1978. When the database for new.FamilySearch.org was created, submissions from Ancestral File were sometimes incorrectly combined with each other or with new submissions in new.FamilySearch.org to create a single record for two similar but distinct persons. In new.FamilySearch.org, users could separate combined records, but the Separate feature seldom corrected all of the errors. In fact, sometimes it caused more errors. Consequently, new.FamilySearch.org has been turned off and is no longer available. Unfortunately, the incorrectly combined records from new.FamilySearch.org are displayed in Family Tree.
FamilySearch is working on, but has not yet released, a tool for FamilySearch Support to move ordinances from one ID Number to another. The coming tool allows FamilySearch Support to see the information that was present when the ordinance was performed.This last statement is interesting in light of the notice from FamilySearch about releasing names from the Reserved Lists.
Regarding the concern about the duplication of ordinances, patrons can reserve the ordinances and hold them in the reservation list until the new tool is available to move the ordinances over. When FamilySearch Support moves an ordinance over, it should drop from the reservation list.
I am not, even now, sure what all this means other than rectifying the obvious errors in this particular entry are going to be very complicated and may result in a loss of the ordinance information. If you run across this message, be sure to read through and follow the instructions from the Help Center how ever they are currently shown.
