Parents added/changed on this profile, his parentage is actually unknown

Guillaume Pépin used to be listed with uncertain parents that presumably made him a brother of Jean Lafond.  Recently someone has changed his parentage based strictly on a FamilySearch tree.  Guillaume's marriage record and any contract for such he might have had are long lost, we have no evidence of who his parents were.

I feel he should be detached from these and put under PPP so this does not recur, we simply have no evidence for his parents, just a variety of speculations.

The uncertain parents should be included in an Uncertain Family section or Research Notes with an explanation and the Wikitree IDs.  At least then it is documented. Possibly a project will agree about PPP status.

Hi Danielle,

You could add this person to the Quebecois Project and I could add the PPP for you.
