I just recently came across WikiTree. I have spent the last day working to add and/or correct information on many individuals. One of my lines is the KIRKLAND family that descends from Richard & Mary Kirkland in Maryland and Virginia and goes down thru the lines thru Orangeburgh & Edgefield, SC and then on to Alabama.
I have done a lot of research on this line. Also, Dr. J.R Peacock spent several years researching this particular Kirkland family, going to the various states involved and looking at thousands of historical records and documents. In 2002, he published his research in an excellent book entitled "Kirkland Family Roots".
There are close to 1,000 Kirklands on Wikitree. All of them are NOT from the above mentioned line. However, I have come across so many duplicates and inaccuracies in this Kirkland line. Is there a way, other than contacting each and every manager, to clean this up?
