Adding researched lines that don't link to oneself

+12 votes

I've been stuck with my Frazier / NY research for years, and have been researching other nearby Frazier families in hopes of something that will link up. No joy yet, and I thought I would enter these lines as long as I've researched them. That could help someone else, or maybe even link to my line sometime in the future. Thoughts?   Thanks, Bob Frazier

Yes, please add them. Any accurate, sourced, new profiles for people who don't already have them are a plus.

Yes add them!   We need as many well sourced profiles as possible.    I frequently create profiles for non-related people..... usually because they share a name with my ancestor and people attribute the wrong records to my ancestor..... When someone related to these profiles contacts me,  I had over my role as manager.

Definitely add them. I have a growing list of unconnected profiles that I go back to and try to connect. They aren't even remotely related to me. I've been adding World War I military people in New Brunswick. The reasons to do it vary by the number of people who do it.

Bob, for some reason I am just seeing this post.  Why don't you check out the Frazier Name Study at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Frazier_Name_Study ?  You can join the project or not, but if you at least add categories on your profiles for the study, then the state category, you may eventually find a link to other related families. That is one of the goals of this project.
