Additional Peer Review of Research Requested

+5 votes

I built up a story through my perspective of this Faw family. Before I start adding profiles, I wanted to reach out to the community for either additional advice and avenues of research to dig into or their personal opinion on the research I've presented thus far and whether they believe it is conclusive.

Any constructive feedback is appreciated.

Hi Stormy,

What a lot of work you have done!

When it comes to sources, linking direct to another site is probably not the best idea (especially if they change the link, or it is a pay for view site)

When you find a source, for instance the 1880 census. There is a part that says cite  this record. You copy and return to your profile and apply it

This is the one for that census 

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MCF9-1ZW : 11 September 2017), Wm J Faw in household of John W Faw, Reddies River, Wilkes, North Carolina, United States; citing enumeration district ED 221, sheet 198A, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0987; FHL microfilm 1,254,987.

Keep doing such good work and your family will be large and filled with interesting info

Thanks SJ
Thanks for your feedback. I typically add the sources in the format you mention after I finish my initial research.

Were you able to follow my logic? Does the conclusion seem reasonable?

Thanks again for answering my post and taking a look!

Hello Stormy

This looks good!

I still have not received your Trusted List request for the Faw Name Study I created on 29 August so I can add you as manager (unless of course Gmail has thrown it in its online bin in overexcitement! LOL)

Could you send me another one, please, just in case?

Just resent. I've been working on the Faw Name Study recently and haven't had any issues adding to the page. What exactly will being on the trusted list allow for the name study?

Thanks!
Hi
All it was was a means to get your email address.  That is the way you get added to any Trusted List - by having your email address added.  Once I had your email address and could put you on the Trusted List, I could make you the manager of the Faw Name Study and remove myself.
It's all yours now! smiley
