I still have my Ancestry account. A lot of clean up work to do. However, something came up today which concerns me as a Dryden family member.
All of a sudden I started to receive hints for Sir John Dryden, the poet, that are being associated with the Drydens of Virginia, (descendants of William Dredden of Scotland.) For you Dryden family members whose ancestors were from Maryland, Virginia and other parts of the US, there is no connection between the two families. Sir John Dryden is not a member of the Drydens who came to MD and VA in the late 1600's. Unless, there is new information I am unaware of and then I have a red face.
I sent a note to Ancestry but I am afraid their computer will continue to spit out these hints. I am sure this has happened to a great number of name mix ups. Such a shame...and what a mess.
