Nice to meet you, 9th cousin once removed!
posted by Scott Hutchins
Congrats to my newly found distant cousin for being chosen as a featured member! That's awesome. I enjoyed your interview. Somehow, I got chosen a few months ago. Also, in the relationship finder we show as 11c2r. My 7th ggf Daniel Dugger, married Mary Scarborough. You can check again me, Howard-18984, to see. I would love to hear back. I don't think we are allowed to put links here, so I will send you my email in a private message. Congrats again!

Hi, Nancy!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Nancy;

I noticed the names of the Cox folks you were adding and revising. Many of the names look familiar but so far no matches. I was intrigued because the family came through Indiana and Illinois before finally settling in Missouri. They originally arrived from Great Britain in New Jersey and went south into Kentucky and the Carolina's. My paternal grandmother was Nannie Belle Cox (Cox-23202) and her brothers were John and William. Plus there are at least two Jessies including Rev Jesse Cox (Cox-16909). This one of the family lines that I have yet to run into any matches in existing WikiTree profiles. Good luck in your searches.

Regards, John Kessler - Kessler-1011

Hello Nancy,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Seems like you have jumped into a project already! Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Pre-1700 ancestors can be shared by many descendants, so collaboration is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Sources are very important here on Wikitree, especially on Pre-1700 profiles. It is how we show where we got the info and help others find it too. Find out more about sources here and more detailed info here.

If you have any questions, click reply below this message and I will get back to you.

Hi Nancy,

How are you? Thanks for adding profiles to WikiTree. There are reasons behind the eighth point in our Honor Code: "We cite sources. Without sources we can't objectively resolve conflicting information." A source provides a way to find out more about the person. Showing sources reduces confusion and duplicates.

Please read the below pages on sources,

Help:Sources FAQ
Here is what our Sources help page says. It has lots of ideas.
The Sources Style Guide shows how to enter sources in the biography.

Please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well - if you have pre-1700's ancestors to add please read our Pre-1700 profiles info.

A very good website for finding sources and it is free to sign up is FamilySearch.org

And I'm here to help too, just ask!

Did I do something wrong? I have been adding my family up to my great grandparents generation. When I find a source on Family Search, I have been copying and pasting the citation from that record. I do have info from my mother’s memoir, a book and a hand typed family tree from the 1950s. I also occasionally match records from a GEDCOM, which sometimes gets me off on a tangent. But, I don’t think I have added any unsourced or duplicate files.
posted by Nancy (Cox) Wilson
Hi Nancy,

No, you have done nothing wrong. I just thought you might like to read the help pages on sources and when you get into Pre-1700 profiles the sources are more important and all profiles need dates and locations. I noticed on some of your profiles you are not adding locations for birth and or death. Others have minimal biographies or no biography and some have what I call GEDCOM clutter that needs to be removed. Some need a little attention to style.

David

Thank you, David

posted by David Selman
What is GEDCOM clutter? I don’t have all the birth locations or deaths because my sources are older books or the unsourced letters that I have in hard copy. I added the generation of my paternal grandfather and his siblings and am going back and adding birthdates, death dates and locations. I am making a list of records I need and will make a trip to an LDS Family research location sometime in the near future. I don’t post things from my GEDCOm, I don’t think and I don’t trust Pedigree Reaource files from Ancestry or Family Search.

Hi Nancy,

This page in the Help Index will explain what to remove from a profile after the GEDCOM/GEDCOMpare profile is created. Help:GEDCOM-Created Biographies and here is an example of a profile that has what I call GEDCOM clutter. Harris Hanes Cox

Profiles should have the dates and locations added and sourced as they are created when possible.

Here is a profile I sourced for you using FamilySearch.org and meets WikiTree source style. Annie E Ferrin

FamilySearch.org is part of the LDS Family for researching.

Thank you, David

One of our mentors created a tutorial for the GEDCOMpare process that I found very helpful. I hope that you will too.
