No Matches from Family Search on Transcriptions?

2 like 0 dislike
Have transcribed over 500 images in the last week from several different cemeteries, but only a handful of matches pop up from Family Search.  In the past they have been fairly regular and numerous. Wondering if there has been a change made on matching this data.

I didn't want to answer this one as I'm hoping BG will chime in.  I noticed as well in the last week that there seemed to be a smaller percentage of matches.  Let's see if we can get a comment from the people that would know for sure.  Thanks for volunteering!

I don`t confirm any matches that request I verify information that I don`t have. Such as place of birth or death!

You misunderstood my question - Specifically I wondered if there may have been a technical glitch between BG & FS whereby there were so few matches emerging between the two.  I was not inferring that one should verify info related to the 2 sites.  However, there have been more matches recently - so subject is closed.  Thank you for your response.
