I need help with deciding a last name for an early Burdge (Burdg) ancestors. I have found a John Burdg Burdg (Burdg-39) who I believe is Jonathan Burdge born in England and should be part of the New_Netherland_Settlers project. Burdg-39 is the parent of one Sarah Burdg-38 whose data (married Abel Weeks) corroborates with my information. Everything else is different from the information I have and the data for Burdg-39 is unsourced. I would like to preserve the lowest possible number for this Burdge, but cannot just edit this profile as I feel the last name at birth is incorrect. According to my great-great uncle, Howard G. Burdge, "Burdge (Burdg) and Allied Families", Burdge was spelled with an "e" at the end. Later, different branches of the family dropped the "e". It is my feeling that the name at birth for John Burdg Burdg (Burdg 39) should be changed to Burdge and then the descendants would have Burdge or Burdg, depending what their family uses. I guess this would mean creating a new profile but the number would be higher?
