Thanks Carol, for fixing Arabia Jackson Brown, not sure what happened with the Elizabeth Brown Dooley, when I was working on the Error Chart she showed up as born a year before her mother and the same year as her father. Now cannot pull up the error Chart, under some kind of maintence. Will delete messages, thanks again.

ps - take the resources on that page with a grain of salt. Most are not reliable. See Bell-884 for a lot of links to resources, and a lot of those through a WikiTree page that talks about the reliability of the reference.

Hi Carol! I've been doing some work on a branch of the Bells (not yours, I don't think) & thought you might want to take another look at

I asked Joe if he'd ever heard the term "Border Bells" and he said > I think I remember hearing it. I think it is just an alternative name for the Bell Clan whose lands are located on the Scotch-English border on the west coast

Cheers, Liz

Hi Carol,

If you'd like to help with the Brown Name Study, I am just asking folks to add their Brown family, only those born with the name Brown, to the Brown Name Study categories, and we can add a section to the study page with more details on the family history. Let me know if you're interested! Thanks, Abby

To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

Please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms on the (G2G) feed:

You might want to set your Privacy to Private with Public Family Tree. The WikiTree programming needs to see your Family Tree tab to make DNA and other cousin connections for you. Please take a look at my profile where I use Private with Public Biography AND Family Tree to see a list of some of my WikiTree cousin connections and my list of U.S. Presidential cousins.
