Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1976; with a mix of Nova Scotian and Newfoundlander ancestry that goes back a number of generations.

Hi Brad, I've answered via email but in case you don't check those regularly... yes, I have been adding "unsourced" tags in preparation of the Source-a-Thon at the end of the month. FYI The Data Doctors also sometimes do short Source-A-Thons, so it's always good to tag any profile that doesn't have a primary source.

Hi Brad,

I'm wondering if you can help me link a profile you manage to my husband's tree through a large number of orphaned profiles? I've already adopted a few but I'm wary of straying into a minefield of gedcom paths I can't follow but in the simplest terms you are my next link through the weekly profile steps of separation?

I can see you manage profile Pynn-1, Virtuous Maria Pynn? my husband is linked to the wider tree through her marriage to simmons-2038 and all their descendants! Both them and the wider tree need adopting and cleaning up from gedcom; I'm wondering if maybe you could help me a little please, if you have an interest?

Kind regards,

Thanks for the comment!

For your info, Thomas Frick is in my wife's genealogical line. She, and I, were both born in Newberry County, SC. Her lines have been traced back to a number of the early German settlers in the Dutch Fork (Lexington and Newberry Counties) area. In addition to the Fricks this includes Epting, Fulmer, Shealy, Mayer, Wertz and Dominick. As you may know, the term Dutch Fork has nothing to do with people from The Netherlands. It originally referred to the Germans who settled there as the Deutsche Volk, meaning German people. Over the years Deutsche Volk become the Dutch Fork. In the 1731-1765 time period the area was known as Saxe-Gotha, due to the number of German settlers.

Thanks for your work Brad - Mabel Pyke was my grandmother and went by the "y" version. I'm not sure when the switch happened, but that's why I've kept it that way.

The death record for Priscilla Childs would put her being born 1810 which is 11 years earlier than my Priscilla.

Thank you, B, for such a lovely compliment about my profiles. I am cleaning up my gedcom import mess and am on track to be done by Christmas. Your positive feedback is very energizing!

No problems; sorry if I inadvertently corrected a spelling that should have been left misspelled - I am sure that I never altered a text URL as I checked them all. There is some question about the death year: 1834 vs. 1835 as I noted earlier. Do you have a definite source that gives one year or the other?
