Not exactly sure, I would continue to site All the sources, before I made a decision.

Father (Sr.) is born 1870, the Son (Jr.) is born 1916. 

Father, Line: 22 = Ackerman-1192, Son, Line: 24 = Ackerman-1227

I looked at Fathers page & clicked on his 1920 census to be able to tell that they are at least not duplicates.

This is where: Sr., Jr., III, IV, V, VI comes into play.

Example: This is my Gr Gf. He is John P Vickery Sr.:  http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vickery-357

This is me John P Vickery IV : http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vickery-352

There are lots of places to take free online video courses to help make you a better genealogist, here is one from Kitty's Library page: http://is.byu.edu/site/courses/free.cfm  

The above link came from Kitty's Library, link shown below.


Further Example: This is one of my Gr. Gf. Notice how I listed each (Household Members / Relation / Age:), For every member & for every Census. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Edmonston-58

I  Exhaustively https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/exhaustive search all the the sources possible and write them all on paper / I make charts & forms before i ever think of entering a Profile. 

Yes, some of my profiles have huge holes in them, for now.
