Just read the 127 names of researchers looking for Dean family information. As one who has been working on my Dean line for 18 years, I recommend the questions posed provide the following information when possible to increase the likelihood of finding a common link with another researcher.. Birth, death, marriage dates are critical for initial sorting. Provide path traveled of ancestors,eg; States traveled in sequence.
Example: my line is first found in Loudoun Co. Va 1760, then south to Amherst and Rockbridge Co. Va, the north in western WVa to SE Ohio.
Another branch traveled to Fleming Co., KY, the Montgomery and Clark Co., KY. Eventually some onto Henry Co., KY. Yet another line to Owen Co., IN. Another part of that family traveled fro Clark Co. KY to Sangamon Co,. IL
Part of the group in Owen Co., IN traveled to NW MO, then to KS City. Some went on to Utah and CA. One member went back to Hopkinsville KY and Clarksville TN.
Just a suggestion to make links with other researchers.
