Many moons ago, started the journey of discovering all I could about my ancestors.

Hi Cheryl, Ide-386, I corrected the spelling on Pennsylvania.

Hi Cheryl, in regards to John Ide-386, no need to worry, I edited the marriage to correct a spelling error in the marriage location, Pennsylvania was spelled incorrectly, this week's Data Doctors challenge is correcting profiles with errors in the marriage portion of profile. You either entered 'Pennslyvania or Pennsylvannia, I don't recall today which one it was.

RE: Shared Ancestor Elizabeth Brashears

Profile Brashears-290 is the older https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Brashears-290 https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Brashears-301

WikiTree's mission is to create a single family tree with one profile for every person. Having two profiles for one person works against this goal. Our Honor Code reads: "We collaborate. When we share ancestors we work together on the same ancestor profiles."

Duplicates were created purposely, defeats the purpose of a single family tree. "Our mission is to grow an accurate single family tree that connects us all and is freely available to us all."

As we go back in time, the privacy controls open up. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:About_WikiTree

On 9 Jun 2018 Cheryl(Givens) Maxwell wrote: Keete, Your suggestions sound wonderful, to work together on merging our families back together. How about you keep your bio of Elizabeth Brashear-Hyden, and I keep mine? Include both "theories" in her bio with sources? Seems that you and I have put lots of time into researching her "mysterious life." Thanks, your distant cousin Cheryl Givens

You also wrote this on my page last time you requested to merge.

Keete, very nice, and explanatory. Now, how about you put that above my biography of our 4x Ggm, Elizabeth Brashears-Hyden-290? Eventually, they will be merged together. I shall not change, or delete any of your work, promise! Assured you will do the same with my bio of our shared Elizabeth. Cheryl Givens

Than no I am still not ready, Your bio is long and I don't feel that mine will ever be seen due to this. I tried to work with you to shorten the Bio, to merge our 2 bio's and combine them into one but we can't seem to even do that. I have a problem with you giving too much credit to Charles Brashears who completely admits to guessing due to circumstantial evidence. I know I am being very stubborn on this, but your way of wording the truth I find offensive and attacking when it comes to our descendants. You may see nothing wrong with it, but I do. Sorry I really wanted to work with you but I honestly don't see how to move forward from here. I will think about it a little longer and then let you know what I decide. You also did not address if your plans are to remove me as a profile manager.
