42 views

I have information to contribute to the profile of Alexander Balcom III. This is what I can add:

  • Marriage to Sarah Woodcock

These are the sources I am using:

  • Massachusetts Marriages, 1695-1910

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!

You are on the wrong profile to make that addition. Alexander Balcom [III] was born in 1696. His father was the one who married Sarah Woodcock. Alexander Balcom-165 is the correct one to add the marriage source to.

Thanks for the star, Cheryl, it's most appreciated. In re-reading my answer, it struck me that my first sentence sounds too abrupt. Be assured I didn't mean it to be!
