Research notes


Warning: You'll see several instances throughout the Internet, claiming that his parents were from "Holland, Reusel-de Mierden, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands," but this is a completely bogus birth location generated from a a software's bad "autocomplete" function that failed to recognize the name as the intended Netherlands, and instead "found" a match for an obscure street in a tiny village of Reusel. See this Dutch Genealogy blog which explains the error. It should be removed wherever it is found, because it is extremely unlikely that many people's genealogical ancestors actually came from that small town. Mix-216 14:23, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Hi Dodie, These can be merged now , Note : Hageman-7 into Hegeman-40 ! Thanks :) Bea

(Hegeman is the correct spelling)

Hi ,

Added Hageman-7 as unmerged match , they seem to represent the same (duplicates) , added his wife UNKNOWN-12001 Lucretia UNKNOWN as this ones wife already , so the wifes can be merged.

I'll disconnect the son Adrian Hageman of this duplicate couple, because:

  • there already are two duplicate Adriaen sons here
  • and son Hageman-6 is connected to a child and wife , and can be merged with already PPP't Adriaen Hegeman] son of Hendricus Hegeman and Adriaentje Bloedtgoedt who was married and is already connected as husband to Maria van der Vliet as well.

Thought I let you all know where they came from  :) Greets and thanks , Bea

We have very different opinions about this, but for this profile, it is not a lost cause. You're more involved with this profile than I am, so I will step aside. Would you like me to revert it to its immediate-post-merge status? (I think you can do this yourself, but if you'd like me to do it, I will.)

In my view, what conveys the information has been vetted is decent source citation. Without it, no matter what format, it's all speculative. A citation, or an indented paragraph embedded into the narrative can provide the details you're seeking. I don't see what format has to do with it. If the narrative has incorrect data, fix it and cite it.
