I am almost halfway through sourcing an orphaned GEDCOM. I have done
over 3000 profiles in it. I estimate that more than 60% of them are based on Dorothy Maltby Verrill's published Maltby family history which was published in the early 1900s and notes she had acquired by the 1950s, and was about to publish when she died, and is computerized as a tripod. Using this past experience I feel that May Maltbie-304 and Lizzie May Maltby-258 are the same girl. May was never listed as a child in the first entrance in the tripod. She is not on any censuses I found and there does
not appear to be any birth or death records in Ohio for her. Can anyone
find evidence of her existence and/or should I merge them based on what I
have presented here?
