Hi Sir William,

Back on 17 Jan 2016 you linked Sarah Catt to Solomon Catt as daughter-father but I see no evidence for this. Any chance you might remember why you linked these two?

Hullo, re: George Abbot. After reading your comments, I see that they are two different Men. The Bio of George Abbott stated George was a Proctor within the Archbishop's Court of Arches 1802", which is true of my George, his Father and his brother. Added 29 Mar 2014 by an unlisted user. I'll ask at the G2G how I can reverse this merge.

Hi Sir William. I happened to notice you using Template:Kb. That's not recommended. It might stop working some day. It doesn't have to be removed from existing profiles, but it shouldn't be added to new ones. See

I noticed you changed the proper (and preferred) first name and prefix to a proper first name "Sir James" for Fergusson-163 and I changed it back. This tweaks the search results so the proper title shows up (which is just fantastic for finding specific people...) but the name standards say specifically the proper first name field should be one word only. Probably a change in the name standards are in order - the instructions are long overdue for an overhaul by the project with some help from the tech team.
