Hi Janis,

Thanks so much for the honor of allowing me to be the profile manager of my third great grandmother, Sarah Lincoln Shaw, and yes, I will take very good care of her! ~ carol

My mother was born to Hilda Cushman. Her parents were Florence and Cecil George Cushman and she was raised by Cecils brother William and his wife Jessie. I have looked and looked and it is as if the whole family vanished after the 1920 census. Need help. Hilda supposedly became a Jones. Her siblings were Cecil Jr. Marion and Madge.

Hi Janis,

Regarding Holbrook-440 I didn't add any info, I only updated the place name to reflect the time period.

Thanks, Janis. I created that Katherine Gardner profile because I found the baptism record. Now it's on my Unconnected List here. I couldn't recall who I had ruled out as NOT her family member's, so I added profile messages to start a paper trail...

Thanks for the progress regarding the Sarah Dunbars.

I'm not interested in Sarah (Dunbar) Alger. By way of explanation, when I run into a situation where people of the same name might have been confused or conflated, I like to take inventory of the profiles for people of that name. When I did that, I noticed the duplication, so I looked to see if they needed to be merged.

And the impetus for my sudden interest in the Dunbars was seeing Brodie-775 -- indicated to be the mother of a Hingham, Mass., settler -- on my connection path to an Englishman. I've disconnected her from her alleged child in Hingham. My earliest ancestor in this line that I'm reasonably confident of is Gardner-3442 -- there's lot's of opportunity for research, not to mention frustration and confusion.

Thanks for your note. I have mostly stayed away from my Gardner-Garnet ancestors because they were a mess and I didn't have any other information to add. I had noticed that these families were improved a good bit recently. Today, when I saw somebody's connection path to me went through Scottish aristocracy, I looked to see what that was about, and found that Dunbar-1177 conflated a Scottish aristocrat with an early New England settler. That's when I started poking around. I moved -- and I removed that man's daughter Sarah (Dunbar-1178) over to the family of the Robert Dunbar profile where your adopted Sarah Dunbar is connected, and I proposed a merge of the two Sarahs.

Hingham, Mass. genealogy has been challenging due to lack of consolidated records, but the NEHGS recently published a new database of early vital records for Hingham (with images of what appear to be the original handwritten records) that I think may help with sorting out the Garnett-Gardner naming issue, as well as keeping the different generations of the family straight.

Thanks for the corrections on [[Whiton-358|the Whiton Profile]. Collaboration is nice, especially when someone isn't as knowledgeable about good v bad sources.
