Hello, I'm new here and not sure of how to go about the collaboration process. I've connected my grandmother to the tree, but I've noticed some confusion (and duplicates) with the family. I'm willing to do the work of merging, but I don't want to step on any toes, as well as making sure I'm following good processes. I don't have premium access to records on other sites, so its still difficult for me to view and research sources properly.
Where's the best place to make notes that others can see in order to collaborate on some proposed changes.
First, I've made a mistake with my grandmother's birth place. Apparently its not what I remember hearing when I was younger, and census sources are conflicting. But I recently found a photo with her handwriting on the back that mentions her birth place. If I upload those photos, is that sufficient source information? Should I revert my last mistaken change before, or just simply continue on with corrected info?
She also has photos of a few relatives with names (mostly nicknames) in her handwriting, that helps link a few profiles together, I think. So my second question involves merging what I believe are duplicate records (I'll list the details out later)
My biggest mistake so far (but only in my own local tree, so far) was inadvertently combining two people into one (now clearer based on cited sources here), her grandmother (and step-grandmother, apparently).
Let me start with identifying my grandmother's profile: (oh, linked in the form, I think)
But my real question, for now, is where and how best to write collaboration notes (and maybe, who'd like to help collaborate with me :) )?
