Re: Way to mark "Done" or "Verified" on a person's record

What does anyone consider to be verified or done? I'd prefer to see an improvement to the site wherein there is some kind of checkbox for each fact that represents a persons life. It could be a very long time before a person could be considered wholly "verified" depending on how long it takes to gather proper documentation. A checkbox would be helpful so that each individual fact can be verified and a researcher knows that they can move away from that aspect of the hunt for facts.

For me, a "verified" fact would be a copy of provable documentation in *my* files. If I've got a copy of a birth certificate (or the family bible page, or the church record), then that birth information is "verified" and I can check off a box, and so on like that. You can't "verify" a death date based on an engraved headstone - there are too many engraving errors.

Just curious what others consider "verified".
