HI Paul,

As you determined during the merge that Happes was the correct spelling of the name on, please go back and add research notes to explain this decision. As I indicated in my notes, the only sources I had found indicated the spelling of Hoppes. Thank you for improving WikiTree, I am anxious to see your sources.

To do a merge (which was needed) one must select a surname. I can find no evidence of the 'correct' spelling, and in fact, there is unlikely to be a correct spelling. Yes the memorial does say Hoppes, but I have found memorials to be wrong. The memorial also does not say Eva. There is a family tree on My Heritage managed by a James Brian Gouge (who is possibly a decendant) and he uses Hoppes. Feel free to change the spelling.

HI Paul,

I see you are working on merges, you may want to review Merging FAQs to understand your responsibilities in doing merges. Remember, after the merge you will want to clean up the text. During a merge, the text from the merged-away profile is simply appended onto the end of the text of the merged-into profile. You will want to integrate it into a single biography and a single sources section. Thanks so much for helping improve Wikitree! If you have any questions, just let me know.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for adding your DNA to WikiTree. Getting the Best from DNA will tell you more about how DNA kits are used on WikiTree.

The GEDCOMpare process guide has tips on how to use the data in your file most efficiently.

I hope this helps! If you have any questions or problems, let me know.

Have fun

Thank you for posting the unmerged match between Ethridge-365 and Etheridge-1142. In spite of their shared birth date and place, they are different men. John Etheridge (Etheridge-1142) died of disease in 1862 in Alabama during the early years of the Civil War. I'm pretty familiar with the line of his wife, Mary J. Sharpton, as her brother is my great, great grandfather. Also Ethridge-365 lived 36 years after Etheridge-1142 died. The profile of Ethridge-365 has a link to his grave site, and it has a notation that he is not to be confused with John Etheridge who died in 1862.

Regards, Margaret

Hi Paul,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a Pre-1700 Project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Collaboration is essential because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants.

It looks like the England Project would be a good fit with the profiles you entered. Adding the tag England will help you get updates about activity for that project.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)
