Andy Gürth has an interest in Scottish Clans.
Glencoe Wood Nature Reserve

I'm a landowner and Lord of Clencoe, Argyll, Highland, Scotland (charitable title). With this I support the preservation of nature reserves in the Scottish Highlands. I’ve chosen to take an active part in restoring the once lush Highland landscape, ravaged by commercial forestry and overgrazing over the years, to its former glory. It also help to conserve and protect the plants and animals that call these areas home and keep them safe from further devastation.

- 1972 expropriated by GDR and converted into a VEB
- 1978 closed
- in the following years the buildings became ruins
- 2008 demolition of the ruins

BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER, WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES

If you find errors on any of my submitted records, please be so kind and let me know so I can correct those. It's important for all of us hobby-family-researchers and historians to remain accurate in the data we publish.

When researching European names, pay specific attention to the spelling, especially when uncommon letters are involved.
In German there are those "Umlaute": Ä, Ö, Ü, ä, ö, ü and ß.
Do not assume that Schäfer and Schaefer are the same.
And Boeck is not the same as Böck.

Ich würde mich sehr über Kontakte mit anderen deutschen Muttersprachlern hier in WikiTree freuen, um vielleicht eine deutschsprachige Gruppe zu gründen (um sich auch mal einfach in der Muttersprache austauschen zu können) und gemeinsam die erschreckend vielen Fehler in den Ortsangaben bei den europäischen Siedlungsgebieten von deutschstämmigen Personen zu korrigieren. Wenn Daten im 17. Jahrhundert mit einer Ortsangabe von nach 1945 gegründeten Bundesländern der BRD hinterlegt sind, ist das nicht nur historisch falsch. Und wie viele Orte in den historischen Gebieten Wolhynien und Galizien auf einmal zu Deutschland gehören, nur weil da Kolonisten aus deutschen Landen siedelten, ist auch bemerkenswert. Die Kenntnis von europäischer Geschichte und Geographie scheint bei den amerikanischen Freunden nicht sonderlich ausgeprägt zu sein. Aber das ist ja auch bei FamilySearch und Ancestry usw. leider zur Genüge festzustellen. Und wenn Ortsangaben vor der Unabhängigkeitserklärung mit 'USA' angegeben werden, scheinen die Kenntnisse übers eigene Land wohl auch nicht sehr vertieft zu sein ;-)
Und als DataDoctor muss man dann den ganzen Unsinn u.a. in den diversen Wettbewerben wieder zeitaufwändig korrigieren und berichtigen. Von dem ganzen GEDCOM-Import-Junk mal ganz zu schweigen....

Hi Andy,

Thanks for taking responsibility for Orphaned Profiles. This is a courtesy email to share the After Adopting Orphans FAQ which explains the special attention adopted profiles will sometimes need from their profile managers. One quick way to find the profiles you adopted is by searching your Contributions List for the word "adopted" and "manager." You can find a quick link to your Contributions List in the My WikiTree dropdown menu.

If you will be working with any profiles needing GEDCOM cleanup, the AGC tool can help with formatting so that you can concentrate on the research. You can read more about it in the WikiTree AGC FAQ.

Let me know if you have any questions on how to find and record sources; find or merge duplicates; clean up GEDCOM or merged biographies; or interpret the Suggestions report. I'm here to help!

Andy, not sure how you came upon that error on my Grandfather, Erwin Scott, Sr. But thank you for taking the time to find and make that correction.

Thanks for adding a reference code to my William Russell profile. Can't believe I missed that! I am always correcting other people's profiles for the same error. LOL
Thank you I will try to change spelling on that thank you very much.
