    I am heartbroken to read of Gene's loss. Gene and I explored our roots together (not always in agreement as to was the spouse of whom! LOL) and I'd gone to ask him a question when I found this sad news. I am so sorry that his family has to suffer the great grief of losing him.

    Gene, I've only just realised that you did what I hadn't the courage to do and unlinked John Martin,

    thank you, Helen (and I forgot all about Dorcas below,)

    Hi, Gene.

    I just found and adopted a duplicate Richard Martin Lord Mayor of London so have proposed a merge. The duplicate correctly links his daughter Dorcas with Sir Julius Caesar. I've also found quite a bit about his wife Dorcas which I've put on the Freestyle page I created for the family. I've written it as a profile so if you approve it can be cut and pasted into her profile Freespace page

    Thank you for being patient with a rookie & being willing to help. Look forward to merging even more

    Cousin, I'm thinking that you know the Crawford line better than I ever will. So I'm asking you to review the line, if you have time. Robin asked me to check the kids of Thor Longus but once I hit the 3rd generation, it started to look like it's going to take hours to figure out. Particularly... do you think the ancestors and kids of John Crawford PPP make sense? ... Is he a duplicate of John Crawford (living 1140)? ... I think the family should review the line in general. We were talking about it on G2G here.
