and other sources listed on profiles.
I am one of the persons who completed a merge of Thomas Coleman and his wives that should not have been done, and regret I didn't pay more attention to dates and locations. For the Profile Managers of the listed profiles, please join this collaboration to sort out the profiles.
1. We need to identify which profile would be best for Thomas of Hadley and which for Thomas of Nantuckett. Done 24 Aug by [[Athey-67|Darlene Athey]] Thanks Darlene
2. We need to get the children assigned to the correct fathers and mothers. Done 24 Aug by [[Athey-67|Darlene Athey]] thanks Darlene!
3. We need to get the sources assigned to the correct profiles. (April working on this 24 Aug)
4. Once the two Thomas Colemans are assigned their individual final profile ID#s, we need to merge the duplicates into those, because there are currently five profiles for Thomas. Coleman-405 is a mixture of both. Coleman-939 and Coleman-4753 are of Hadley. Coleman-410 and Coleman-1290 are of Nantucket. -410 and -1290 merged into -405 by [[Athey-67|Darlene Athey]]. Thanks Darlene April will work on the other Coleman merges.
5. Frances Albright wife of Coleman of Hadley is represented by two diverse profiles and we have the sources to determine her true identity, which should be discussed so they can merged. April will work on this.
Thomas Wells-375 and "Hugh" Thomas Wells-123 are not necessarily the same person, and Frances Belcher and Frances Albright are not necessarily the same person. Now that the rest of the Thomas Coleman, and Frances Albright - widow of Wells and wife of Coleman - it is beginning to look like two '''different''' families that were combined.
So my best recommendation at this time is to sort what belong to Thomas and Frances (Albright) Coleman into their family, and not try to make Frances Belcher and her husband Thomas Coleman into the same people. There is still a need for good sources on Frances Belcher and her husband.
