Thomas Clapp (abt. 1597 - 1684)
Needs his parent removed and needs to me merged with:
Joe Cochoit has tried to get this done for close to six months. I have tried to get this done. The evidence is on the two profiles above and on the profiles for the correct and incorrect parents. I scanned pages 114-195 of Kempton Ancestry and offered it to the PGM leader and profile manager of Clapp-29 (and also admin to several other Capp members):
Anderson in the Great Migration says he was siblings with the children of Nicholas. Anderson says that Kempton Ancestry (which was written by two FASG genealogists and a co-author of the Great Migration series) has stated that the treatment of this family in Kempton Ancestry supersedes all previous work. And it says that Clapp-29 was son of Nicholas. He is named in the will of his brother and his father Nicholas. Richard the wrong father never named a son Nicholas in his will. There are several other pieces of evidence making the relationship indisputable discussed in the Great Migration, Kemton Ancestry and other sources provides on the URLs above. Wills and other primary sources are reviewed. The project says that we go with Anderson's conclusion yet the project leader Chris Hoyt will not do so even after close to six months. When I ask about this on G2G I get no response from Chris, Jillaine or Vic. What is the status of this merge request and parent removal? And why does it take nearly six months to get one request completed by the PGM management. The management may not like me or Joe because we keep bringing up the fact that the three leaders are not doing their job viz the above example. But that isn't a good reason to not complete valid requests.
