Speaking of historic photography, I have a couple friends who set up a collection of incredible photographs.
The other is collection developed by Louis Takacs from an underutilized genealogy resource - passports: Passport Research
The other one is at WikiTree by Rod Dubois : : Historic Photography Cabinet
We have a new project that is pretty exciting for people with Polish Roots created by the talented Summer Binkley called the Poland Project. I lead the The Holocaust Project which was started by the amazing Gaile.
I also lead the Irish Roots sub-project for county Kerry. I occasionally lend a hand in the Magyarország, Slovensko and other category projects at WikiTree. I can also help read Hungarian (Magyar) records or any records written in Latin if you need assistance. If you have a profile of a Hungarian ancestor here at WikiTree, let me know if you need sources. If you have found naturalization records or passenger records but can not understand/read the village for your immigrant Hungarian ancestor because of historical boundary changes, I will help pinpoint location.
I admin, with Nick, at the Hungary Exchange genealogy group at Facebook if you need help doing research in Hungary.
My Hungary surnames are:
Nagy, Stermenszky, Sebő, Rakai, Lorintz, Adam, Simon, Rozgany, Zsebik/Sebik, Farkas, Petö, Danko, Gyerus, Haluska, Vladikovsky/Hladikovsky, Polgaŕ, Söss/Sass, Plachetka, Chudi/Chudy, Kovacs, Mész, Szabo, Soka/Zsoka, Fabriczky, Istvanek/Istvanyik/Stephanik, Gothard, Skolnik, Pal, Gaal, Gäll, Császár, Svab.
Locations in Hungary (and some now in Slovakia):

Borsod: Szendrő. Gömör: Krasznahorkaváralja (Krásnohorské Podhradie), Borzova (Silická Brezová), Rozsnyó (Rožňava), Végtelke (Slavec). Pozsony: Szekula (Sekule), Malaczka (Malacky).

I tackled some of this yesterday. The LNAB was about evenly split between what appeared to be three GEDCOM merges from long ago. Loftin, Lofton, and even Loflin was there. Many duplicate profiles, most of which had no managers. So I adopted and merged what I could. There is still much to be done. For example there was the wife Eleanor Williams, Eleanor Unknown, and Eleanor Hellenor. Yeah. I have not sourced the Williams yet or I would know which direction to go with that. As far as Lofton or Loftin, the sources are equally split with both spellings. Later generations adopted one variant over the other so with those it was easier. Does that help?

To me, it looks like the higher-numbered Merriam-321 has the most information; I thought the general preference was the use the lower number-317. I don't know of any personal family connection with George Merriam-321--although the name IS within my family and heritage. I would prefer to let someone ELSE do the merge (is that possible if I am the manager?)

I wonder if you could help. I registered my email and uploaded my DNA volunteered and signed the Honour codea few weeks ago, but am still registered anly as a guest member and can't even edit my own family. Is this normal or have I made a mistake somewhere?
