Suggestion only - Include (estimated) DATES and LOCATIONS!

+2 votes
When you post a query about your ancestor include:

DATES or estimated dates for any (b/m/d) that you might have -

some questions don't include even the century! so it's hard to tell if you are looking in the 1700's or 1950's for your ancestor.

LOCATION - COUNTRY + State/Province/County, City/Town  if you know

ex. RUTLAND  could be in England and  Canada (BC)  and US States:  IL, OH.  PA.  VT,  and MA and maybe more

Relatives names - parents/ spouse/children etc  any that you have

It makes it easier for people to assist you.

Thanks Chris, I am trying to get every one to post all data on there ancestors profile page. This would really help us to help them. It may also avoid issues and comments of "I already had that". Saves us time as well in researching, for them.
