PLEASE NOTE: I have just moved from the United States to Europe and am in the process of finding a place to live. (If you are familiar with "OCONUS PCS," then you know what this is like!) I estimate that I may not have a home with proper internet until July 1. Until then I will make an effort to be on WikiTree every single day regardless, but don't worry if I do not respond to you right away. If you have been waiting for a response or action from me for more than 7 days, don't hesitate to send me an additional message! Thank you everyone for your patience! :)

Cook-598 and Cook-597 appear to represent the same person because: Aside from the slight variation in first name (Albert and Alfred) these men have the same exact birth date and death date

Hi Sarah, Alfred and Albert were twins. I'll be sure to make mention accordingly. Thank you!

Hi Sarah. Yikes, sorry, I thought I was actually helping! I thought I might work on some profiles that were tagged as unconnected, but many that I clicked on already WERE connected to parents/spouses/siblings/children, so I assumed someone else had found connections for them but not removed the "unconnected" categorization. I only removed it from profiles that had at least two other people (connections) already listed in their profiles. I just joined a few weeks ago so I might be misunderstanding the definition of 'unconnected.' I thought it only applied to profiles with no spouses/siblings/children/parents listed. Should I put the category tag back on these profiles? I apologize, I was just trying to clean up the category a little and remove profiles that had been connected/edited.
