Dale Earnhardt is my 7th cousin on my mother's side.

Is there a way to get the older profiles open so we can build out the tree? Some of the profiles from the 1800s are unable to be edited to add the parents. :(

16 degrees, 7th cousin 1X removed.

I'm 21 degrees but I really wish they had put Dan Gurney up instead.  But I guess he is too old time NASCAR for more current members.

Connections says I am 21 degrees away from Dale. However, I found the connection was through Mary Gray b. 1653 in Plymouth, who m. Benjamin Rider in Yarmouth in 1680, but whose profile currently has her marrying, as her second husband, William Barbee in Virginia in 1703 and having multiple children by him after the age of 50. The latter link seem clearly incorrect.
