A basic profile with one source is better than no profile.
I am completely for sources, but sometimes, you don't have primary sources. Secondary sources are good too, as long as you type in where you found the stuff you claim.

Hi Jelena,

I see that you're working on some of the French Garrigues family around 1700.

As you work on this, please be aware of The Ancestry of Matthieu Garrigues of Languedoc..., by Robert C. Garrigus, Columbia, Maryland: 2003 and try not to document connections that are now suspect.

This is an area that we need to be using primary sources since the secondary sources have been in error for so long.

That said, some new primary sources that connect to Matthieu Garrigues (1679-1726) would be wonderful!

posted by Chris Garrigues
Hi Chris,

As you followed my work with the Garrigues, I am sure you are aware that I did NOT work on the American branch of the family. Nor do I plan to work on that branch of the family. I only work on the branch that is documented in the Eastern part of Germany. And they ARE well documented, the OHB of Magdeburg is a compilation of sources about people that have a relationship to Magdeburg in any way. Considering Mathieu I checked for something outside the usual genealogical sources but didn't find anything.

posted by Jelena Eckstädt
Great. Thank you for looking if there was anything elsewhere for Matthieu.
