Posting this here instead of the Wish List forum since it involves FamilySearch integration.
I just noticed a lightbulb for an elusive cousin. It led to a FamilySearch clue for the NARA A-File index, which has been added to FamilySearch. Finding this record is a huge research help.
It got me to thinking... it would be an amazing feature if we were somehow able to do an automated (RM) database search for a specific FamilySearch database.
In other words, if I could isolate a specific FamilySearch database (in this case, https://familysearch...ection/2540918)and query RM to return a list of anyone in my RM database who has a possible record match in that particular FamilySearch database, it could lead to major specific discoveries. With the collection in question (NARA A-Files from the 1940s onward) being able to have a list of all matches in my database (instead of having to discover them manually) would be a major win. That said, it could also be useful to, say, search for any matches in the 1880 census (and/or any matches in the 1880 census that are not already sourced, as such).
I realize that this level of automation is next-level stuff, but it really seems to be where research apps are heading and it would be a big breakthrough on many levels, I think. Thanks for the consideration!
