We love sources that substantiate the entries in the FamilySearch.org Family Tree. But the job of adding sources is not completed until the information in the source is incorporated to correct or add to the entries in the Vital Information section. I am working through a new (to me) family line and I am finding the someone has done an admirable job of adding sources for the entries but has failed to copy the information in those source records and add it to the Vital Information section. In this particular line, it appears that lot of work has been done. The people are all in Utah and apparently active Church members. But the entries lack standardization, locations for events, and usable name entries. This leaves the entries for someone to come along and "clean up."
You might wonder about cleaning up the entries. Why is this advisable or even necessary? Hasn't all the ordinance work been done for these families? As my father used to say, quoting his father, "any job worth doing is worth doing right." This same attitude can be used to ignore all sorts of necessary human activities such as why weed the garden, the weeds will just grow back or why sweep the floor, it will just get dirty again? Quoting another grandparent, my grandmother used to say, "poor folks have poor ways."
I think I can find a scriptural basis for the need to be careful and complete in entering information into the Family Tree. Here is one good quote from the 132nd Section of the Doctrine and Covenants:
8 Behold, mine house is a house of order, saith the Lord God, and not a house of confusion.In context, this scripture refers to participating in temple ordinances with the proper authority. But I think the idea of order extends much further. “… Let us, therefore, as a church and a people, and as Latter-day Saints, offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness; and let us present in His holy temple … a book containing the records of our dead, which shall be worthy of all acceptation.” (D&C 128:22, 24; italics added.) Let's take the time to put our Family Tree house in order and clean up those entries that are incomplete or not standardized.
