It wasn’t on the FamilySearch for very long, but it was there for a short time on 24 January. A database with the title:
JUNK. Records that should be deleted if we could.
It is gone as this post is written (8:00 am central time on 25 January 2019). My suspicion is that, like it states, it was something they could not get rid of–at least temporarily. Several of my colleagues searched it and none of us were able to find any records in the actual database. We probably were not looking for the correct “junk” names.
But the appearance of the database and it’s disappearance makes for a good reminder:
save things the minute you find them
Don’t wait til later. You never know when something that was available at one point in time will be gone. Databases usually don’t disappear for the reason this one did, but it’s not unusual for sites to lose access to licensed databases for one reason or another. Sites “go down” for financial reasons and never reappear. And sometimes you just can’t find it again no matter how hard you try.
Save your JUNK when you find it.
Before the garbage man takes it away 😉
