[What do I do?] The Wrong John Crandall

+3 votes
66 views

I thought for certain I had found the correct John Crandall when I made a profile for John Independence Crandall (Crandall-1721). I thought, there he is, my ancestor.

Then I started looking through DNA matches recently and realized that John Ransom Crandall (Crandall-2763) and his ancestors are the shared ancestor between multiple of my DNA matches and myself, my sister, my aunt, and my cousin!

What do I do to rectify this in my tree? How do I properly transport the 1900 census over from JIC to JRC? I was so certain of what I had found, too! I sounded so sure of myself in JIC's profile, it's embarrassing!

Edit: I think I fixed them. I think.

As have many genealogists before you, you've been "Crandalled."  We've all been there if we have Crandalls. wink

I suspect we've all been there no matter what our ancestors are named!  I know I have … several times, in fact!
