Phase two is nearing the end. One corrected wife's profile remains, with notes explaining where and why the incorrect ones have been moved. Three of those duplicates need to be merged. A merge of duplicate sons named David needs to be completed. Two incorrect children have been moved. Last updates of the profile of Nicholas was finished this morning.
I guess this process now moves to phase three, which is simply ongoing maintenance as feedback may identify minor corrections or, hopefully, additions.
I would like to express my thanks to the many contributors, both within WikiTree and without, who I have had conversations with during this process. While most of them lacked the depth of understanding and the fervor of purpose that I had, they were all supportive of my quest. I will mention one, who went above and beyond my expectations, and that is Bev Hogan Blair. She signs on through her husband, [[Blair-2218|Dan Blair]]. Bev asked good questions and took the time to go to a library and scan some pages that helped clear up some crossing line questions.
While our ancestors have stories to tell, the search for their stories becomes a story in itself. The story of my search for my Cain's has been a good one with many twists and unexpected turns.
