Thank you, Esme, for spotting my error in doubling up on Densley Hart/Holmes.

Can't believe I did it , but I did. Excellent work, finding it, because I was totally unaware. Bev Smith

Thank you, Esme, for merging the Elijah Shavor profiles. I am so very grateful to you for your help. It actually instigated me to adopt a family member's profile page. I hope to do the same to many others, after sourcing and writing biographies for all I manage at this point. Thank you for your generosity!

Sincerely, A distant 'cuz, Sharon

Hi Esme, I just approved one of the merges for Tyrus G Hart. I received another merger for the same person, Hart-2700 with another duplicate. Can only do one at a time so I'm postponing the 2nd merger. Thanks, Janis

The info I got on James C. Ford was from my sister. He may have been adopted but I see nothing about it. There is another entry Ford-9452. Will check all three (9452, 8459 and 9486 out.

Thanks. Timothy Harr
