Thanks for the response. I am doing what I can to find documentation for this line, and the more I dig, the more the line is being revealed as very incorrect. Even with well known sources, the information is just not documented in records and what is documented contradicts what we have listed. As I said in an earlier post, I have reached out to several people who have written extensively on this subject, so we are all working together. I think I am going to step back for a day or so and let my head stop spinning. :) Then perhaps I will be able to come at this a different way and have some definitive success.
I used the link that you provided and to sum up, they don't provide any guidelines, except that their goal is accuracy with documentation. I think that the wording is nice on the paragraph, but very ambiguous and wordy. Sounds like a project in and of itself.
With this profile, I am seeing at least five other Margaret Champernon Bodrugans out there linked to another five or so Otto, Otho, etc....because of variant spellings of either first and/or last names, which is understandable. I am wondering how complex it would be to program into Wikitree to pull up all related names of a family (before a certain date, say 1700) when creating a profile. Similiar to what it does when you do a surname search and there are none by that name, and the program gives you options/related last names?? Just a thought.
