Re: Andrew Zornes-1

1860 Garden Plain, Whiteside, Illinois, USA states he was born 1786 in Pennsylvania

His 1870 Garden Plain, Whiteside, Illinois, USA Census record also states he was born abt 1784 in PA.

No worries about that message that I posted on Oakman-64, Amy. I simply wanted to record the information that I had found.

I think her profile needs some additional research, but it's hardly a crisis.

Ok, I have now recovered from the flu, so I'm getting back to this.

Yes, by "Hatch" I was referring to the Anthony Collamore genealogy book; the author's last name is Hatch.

UPDATE: Several hours after writing the comments below, I had time to look at this, and I saw that you hadn't been back, so I did the LNAB change and the merge myself -- and made other edits to show the source of your biographical text. Thanks to your efforts to document your ancestor, I think this profile is looking really good now! (And making the rest of his family's profiles look pretty pathetic.)

Either one of us could change the LNAB on the profile that we manage. Since you've never done this before, why don't you do the honors this time? Go to edit mode on Collamor-1 and use the itty-bitty hyperlink that says "edit" next to "Last Name at Birth" to change the name to Collamer. Then (this evening) I can merge the Collamore-24 profile into that one.

Just FYI, that content that you copied from the Hatch book needs to be clearly identified as to its source. (Ideally, it would be rewritten to make sense in the WikiTree context, and supported by citations to the original records. But identifying the source and representing it as a quotation will work -- it's not copyright.)

Greetings, cousin Amy (9th cousins once removed, from Anthony Collamore/Collamer and Sarah Chittenden). Don't be embarrassed that you didn't recognize the existence of duplicates -- everybody does that from time to time, particularly when variant spellings weren't recorded on the existing profiles. (But it often pays to search really hard before creating a profile.)

Before we merge Collamor-1 and Collamore-24, we need to reach a firm decision on LNAB. I had never seen the Collamor spelling that you found in familysearch and on Peter's page in the Hatch book. I've edited Collamore-24 to show the spellings in the various records. Given the wild variability, I suggest Collamer for Peter's LNAB. That means we would need to change one LNAB to Collamer before merging. Your thoughts?

Hi ,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community - We are building One Collaborative Tree, with just one profile per person, so it is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add Profiles to WikiTree.

If you have pre-1700's ancestors to add, please read our Pre-1700 profiles info. Also, be sure to include a list of the sources used, on each profile you add.

If you need help getting started, view this introductory WikiTree video. Also, check out the Help Index and the G2G forum. - Good luck growing your branches, Patt -
