I sent Chris a private e-mail thanking him for his help. He quickly noticed some errors and some needed mergers, as we have some interconnections among our ancient grandparents and families.

I’m wondering if there is any evidence that Katherine Gilbert Harrison is a child of I haven’t found any evidence, but they seem to be from the same area.

Hello Chris, I invite you to view the web page "Parish Register Transcripts" information, which is fascinating to me - unlearned and untutored in research as I am- I found it by searching the term

"gilbert site:"

it is titled "This website is a compendium of my notes from many years research into my ancestry in the northern parishes of Gloucestershire and southern parishes of Worcestershire."

Hi Chris. Sources and external links are technically different, though they are often mixed. A source is where the information on the profile comes from. A "see also" is a link to another site for related information. Regardless, you'd never want to replace a full citation with just a link. That will offend some WikiTreers who are sticklers for source styling.

Hi, Chris!

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!

Your assistance before we joined WikiTree has been very valuable. Especially the steering part pointing out paths to follow.

WikiTree requires a unique email address for each member. Once that mysterious road block was passed, all issues disappeared.

Hi Chris

Thank you for your welcome and sorry I haven't responded before. My computer broke down bigstyle and my husband has had it in bits all week. My next challenge is to enter the names of my ancestors as I haven't found out how to do that yet! Most of my ancestors on the Gilbert and Gregory side are from North Petherwin which is now in Devon and Warbstow. Looking forward to seeing what happens next. kind regards Ann
