Hi James,

I'm wondering why you put Joseph Maltby-2394's profile creation information under his biography? You also listed the tripod headings as if it was a published book. The tripod is from Dorothy Maltby Verrills published manuscript and those are headings she used. Each referral is for a specific page dealing with that individual persons information that she is supplying. You removed a source I quoted to support my research notes on the birth date dispute. Please explain how you decided this is correct? You did fine on three other minor profiles that you corrected. Beulah

Hello James: Thank you for doing the shortened version of the FAG link in Keeney-585; however, when you do this, please leave mine up in the burial area. I put FAG Index as a source, but leave the profile # up with the grave information. Also, when you do this, please be careful not to take other symbols out. I do my cemeteries with enclosures see [[1]] as an example. I replaced the bracket you took out and the FAG back where I want it so you can see what I'm referring to here. Also, thank you for your service. Darlene

Hello James. Can you tell me why you removed the paragraph regarding spouse Susannah Smith from the Alpheuus Harmon biography?

You didn't give any reason or any source.

Keeney-244 profile should be open IMHO.

My reply: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Keeney-244 The profile shows a green open lock. Both the public & private view show the same information in just slightly different formats.
