William Nelson (1615 - 1678) PGM please discuss removing parents


GMDIR p 238 Unknown: 1636: Plymouth, Middleborough {PTR 1:3; PCR 1:153, 159; TAG 42:39; 56:32-35] His parents and origins are unknown and the parents should be removed.

This profile needs a redo as well if anyone wants to take it on. But I'm only posting this to discuss removing his parents.

What is the source GMDIR? I don't recognize it...
Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration Directory: Immigrants to New England, 1620–1640 (Boston, Massachusetts. New England Historic and Genealogical Society. 2015)


This book is absolutely a must for anyone working on PGM profiles. It lists every Great Migration Ancestors from 1620-1640 with a complete list of the latest source maternal available (as of 2015). The Great Migration Series stopped at 1635 so it is missing all of the immigrants from 1635-1640. This book fills that gap and adds new sources for the 1635-1640 group that have been published since the Great Migration Series. There is no online version so you have to buy the hard copy. But it has updated sources that are not found in the Great Migration Begins or the Great Migration to New England. His two other newer books: Winthrop Fleet and Pilgrim Migrations also contain dated information and are not available online.
Is this not available through American Ancestors, then?
No, sadly you can not. You have to buy them in print. Several of Robert Charles Anderson's books are only available in print. These include the Great Migration Directory, The Pilgrim Migration and The Winthrop Fleet. You can not access them online. You can access his older books online for example The Great Migration begins and the Great Migration to New England series. But these don't contain the same data. The other thing are his newsletters. He has 25 issues of his newsletter (which ends this year). This is like his own private journal and includes his latest findings. You can buy that in print you or can subscribe and download the whole lot in PDF. But they don't show up on AmericanAncestors web site either.
His father listed in his profile appears to have been deceased before his birth. His mother has no death date shown. Let's remove them, and leave a mention in his bio of which parents were removed, along with their ID's.
