Grace, Thanks for the note on my profile. I need all the positive comments I can get. (:>)

You are a good researcher but your profiles have been confusing to me. Glad you are now using signed Research Notes. I think that will help.

Grace, apologies for making so many changes to Winifred Greene-3939. I do agree with your revised research showing her birth name to be Clarke. Kudos. But probably you should have sent your reasoning to the Profile Managers (and to me, since I questioned your previous reasoning) and then when after agreement you could have added everything to the bio as fact. I find using a Research Notes section very useful to bring up salient info.
