"Everyone wants to be related to a princess and I know when you prove it wrong they get upset"
This is a generalization (see again: Hasty Generalization Fallacy). You have brought a bias you have for folks who do this to this (and the other) thread. No one is claiming anything here except for the truth. If you were to make a statement that William Clayton wasn't x or y and you got resistance, then you might have some room to make such statements. So far, we've welcomed your historical corrections and applied them to the record. Don't see any princess hunting here ;-)
Quite to the contrary, I opened to the other thread with the express purpose of breaking a supposed family link that purportedly goes back to Charlemagne. In fact, I already broke that connection and someone reconnected it (hence the post - I don't want to have to re-address fixing the profile every 3 months). The whole point of the thread is to point out that there are problems with the wikitree (internet) history, to seek assistance and collaboration, and to fix them. I don't understand how labeling someone's ancestor with your subjective opinion about their historical relevance serves to help them in finding the truth.
As for "trivial," it is a subjective characterization. You could argue that many historical figures are trivial based on any number of criteria. It is a subjective opinion and isn't really related to this or the other thread.
Take a step back and ask yourself, if you were to seek assistance on picking apart a questionable history about your ancestor's parentage. Of the following, which would feel like a collaborative effort and make you want to work with the other person?
* "The claims made in the profile of Person-X appear to be exaggerated. He wasn't a governor nor president of the council. He did however, serve on the council and stepped in as chairman for one meeting when the regular president was not present."
* "Your illiterate ancestor is trivial. He didn't even rate a mention in Penn's autobiography. You must think you're descended from a princess."
LOL - perhaps a bit exaggerated but I hope you get my point.
Either way, thanks for your assistance with the record on this profile, it is getting straightened bit by bit each day.
