PGM: Can you help with Richard Kimball merges [closed]

+6 votes

There are a huge number of duplicate profile pages for the 1634 immigrant Richard Kimball, his wife and children. This will be a monumental task to de-dupe them all. Many merges were accomplished a year ago. Several others remain pending, although I've asked Lianne to complete the merges of them. I've also started to clean up the narrative which was a huge mess. (And yes, I'm retaining a list of "contributing" GEDCOM uploaders.)

For those descended from or otherwise interested in Richard Kimball, we need your help. To best keep this under control, I thought we could each take on one child of Richard and Ursula, and work on de-duping those. The children are:

1. Henry Kimball

2. Ursula Kimball

3. Abigail Kimball

4. Elizabeth Kimball

5. Richard Kimball

6. John Kimball

7. Martha Kimball

8. Thomas Kimball

9. Sarah Kimball

10. Benjamin Kimball

11. Caleb Kimball

Please assign yourself one and let us know which one you'll work on. Many many many thanks.

Good Lord, what a mess!
by Keith Baker G2G6 Pilot (106k points)
That's why I need help!

Okay, okay!surprise  It may take me a couple more days, but let me see if I can help. Maybe a few from the PGM group will jump in here?


Thanks for all your work on the WikiTree, Jillaine!

Can I just say, this is a nightmare.

I didn't see this til recently. I've been trying to help anyhow. I just don't know if I've been so systematic about it.


by Jessica Turner G2G Crew (350 points)
Jessica, thanks for anything you can do.

I recently got through the children of Richard and Ursula-- at least by the KIMBALL spelling; if there are other spellings for their children, I haven't gotten to those yet.

One stumbling block is Ursula Scott's ancestry. We can't merge her dupes without merging her parents dupes, and somewhere up the line there is disagreement about parentage. I'd sure like it if someone who knew more than me would take that on.

Then, of course, now that Richard and Ursula's children have been de-duped, each of THEIR spouses and sets of children need de-duping.

Yes it's a mess. Thanks for anything you can do to support it. And... I may have started out methodical, but I don't think I've been able to sustain it! ;-)

I just take on a particular grouping and focus there until I pass out. ;-)

I've checked each of his children. Detached a couple of profiles for which there is no support; requested a merge in another case. Checked for duplicate spouses of each child.

Have NOT checked (yet) to see if there are duplicate children of each of these children.
by Jillaine Smith G2G6 Pilot (917k points)
Checked children of Richard's children; no dupes in existing family profile sets.
