Hi James,

Thanks for having a big heart and adopting the Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention those profiles need.

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

Good morning James, hope all is well with you. See if you agree with me on the Baker Family. On Becker-3880, the birth place is listed as Germany. This appears to be an error. Also, Becker-3879 and Whitmer-120 had 1 daughter named Elizabeth, not 2 as shown on the Whitmer-120 profile. In addition, on the Whitmer-120 profile, her 2 husbands listed are the same person and need to be merged. Do you agree?

Hello. It appears we share Gerst (Garst) ancestry. I look forward to working with you on our shared lineage!

All the best, Vanessa

I went ahead and changed Irene "Charitas" to Irene Heitz, with new profile number Heitz-171.

OK, OK, no umlaut wars! I promise not to whine any more about Müller vs. Miller or Mueller. My keyboard (MacBook Air) makes ¨with "alt option" and u, which suppresses the forward space so that the next character you use is under that umlaut. Umlauts are also delicious for breakfast, but you have to separate the eggs. Best from Jane

Wish you a Happy New Year. May 2018 bring you all you need to be happy.

Congratulation for adding your contributions in December. Whatever the quantity of your contributions, they all count. As we always say "Quality is better than quantity" to make a great family tree.

Thank you for being a Wikitreer,

Guy Constantineau - Wikitree leader

I concur that Johannes Andrew Byerly's are the same person. I believe the 1785 death date to be accurate in that it was used for my SAR membership. Thank you.

To answer your question, yes, either Robert Harter or Christy Forry will need to approve the merge. If you'd like to be sure that the merge goes the correct direction, you could request to be added to the Trusted List of Charitas-1. Once you've been added to the Trusted List you could do the merge yourself.

The easiest way to make that request is to click on it on the Charitas-1 profile, near the top of the page, on the right hand side, here: "(For merging, request to join the Trusted List.)"

I have queried the Brethren@rootsweb.com discussion group on this. Perhaps someone can provide a definitive answer on this. (It seems that any person with heritage in the Church of the Brethren has Michael Mueller in there somewhere!)
