Re Maude (Carnine) Gardiner. Good point ! A nine year old Maude should not be manufacturing children!  :-)

Have you ever used the gedcom plus dna feature on gedmatch. I tried to upload my data from ancestry but I could not get it to go through. I did upload it to wiki as you can probably see and that was a great way to get a lot of info on my tree. I do like wiki for many of it's features but sometimes I find it cumbersome when I want to put in new people.

Hi Peter and thank you for looking at my tree. I am new at this so I do appreciate your help and as one can easily see I do not have everything down to a science yet. Just let me look at the person prior to the merge because sometimes i do learn a lot by the info on the merger and actually that is a good place to see it.

I am still trying to figure out this Byrom, Byron thing and I will ask my mother if she has any ideas.

I also cannot understand the Bowers on Mary Jane Byron but I see it keeps showing up in quite a few places so I have to spend some time trying to get an answer on this. I do know there was and Uncle Ed Bowers but I cannot find him.

Chat soon and thank you for your interest, Sherry San Diego
