It would be nice to have his parents detached, they were born after his death

I have found a lead to sourcing his "mother", but I'm getting tired of having the red alert each time I save.

It seems like there are many involved who added sources and agree with you. Maybe let the project leader know so she can remove the project protection so it can be fixed. If not, I can remove it.

We can wait some.

I had just this morning corrected the LNABs of Matthiasson's daughters after a due process of communication with project people and profile managers. Then noticed Gerry's comments about the parents and decided to apply a second pair of eyes to the task. I found that Gerry was right - the family cluster of the bogus parents was more or less unsourceable, because nobody was in the books at the times and places they were alleged to be. So, when I did find ONE grandparent in the right time and place, and could go on from there I was a bit excited :-)

I removed the PP as I see the New Sweden project coordinator is also working on it. Great catch everyone.

I'll leave it til tomorrow morning, I think. I was supposed to work on my own kin today.

All done!! Thanks to all involved.

Better turn on the protection again before he acquires another set of spurious parents ;-)
