In clearing up some records I found myself tracking back over the Weld family, particularly the branch descended from Joseph Weld (1599 - 1646). Possibly because of the repeated use of the same Christian names, the Weld family line is in a bit of a mess. I have access to the text of Joseph Weld's will and other documents that can straighten this out, but it involves quite a few mergers. I'm happy to do it if I'm made profile manager for the several Welds involved (I've suggested mergers for most of them). I'm also happy to discuss my evidence (wills, marriages, and property sales) with anyone who is interested in the Welds and in straightening out this family. Currently the situation is such that one Weld is father both to himself and his sister born the next year!
