I have 30 degrees of separation from AJ.

I am Burke-2897, and I was pleased that the connection included one of my favorite actors, James Spader! Add me to the cousin list, not The Blacklist!

Guess I missed the boat, or was not in right line for the ticket.

33 degrees away from AJ

Two Questions:  (1) My profile does not "meet the style standards" - should I remove the category connection from it?

(2) Should I be adding this category/relationship calculator to all profiles I touch when I do cleanup?

It looks like on one hand I should, on the other hand no.

". . . . We want to eventually have reliable support for all of these connections,"

"". . . .degrees of separation", not a genealogical sourced family tree"

Thanks, Sandy

I believe I am already on the list Hathaway-1200, but please add my wife Grannis-62, son Hathaway-1215, and son Hathaway-1216.  We will be attending the GFR.

At almost the 11th hour .... yes! All sourced too! But I have one heck of a lot of work to do on the connecting profiles getting all the sources/documentation listed & uploaded, and that will take some time ~ will be working on it over the coming months. Chuffed to be there finally! smiley
