A merge is proposed of Kirkpatrick-58 that requires your approval. Can you please review that and approve the merge?

Help, please? I wrote you some time ago to request a merge approval for your Vaughn-104 and my Vaughn-5485. They are clear duplicates. I have been cleaning up and adding to your Vaughn because I know as your one is the older usually they prefer us to merge the younger into the older unless it is a problem with the spelling of the surname. I'm quite keen to get this underway. And, I understand you are busy, likely, but if you want, and if you would put me on as an assistant PM or whatever they are called, I will be happy to keep them all updated properly. Just do please approve the merge soon. Many thanks

Additionally! I just found this! You have Carter-373 and someone else has Carter-38460 which are clear duplicates as well! Please merge these or get the other person to. I have one of my great grandfather's married to the same person twice because of this.

Hello MG. Regarding Crandall-32, a wife named Mary is shown and several children are listed in the individual's biography. Yet the individual, John Crandall, born in 1703, is indicated as having died in 1720 approximately 17 years of age. Given the birth dates of the children, the year of death of this John Crandall has got to be decades too soon.

A son name of John is shown in the biography, with no date of birth. There is a possible connection here to an American Revolutionary War vet named John Crandell who emigrated with at least one son (Abraham) from Dutchess County New York to Switzerland Township in southern Indiana, from where some of his children and perhaps a brother further emigrated to Wisconsin. A .tif scan of a biographical sketch of Abraham published in Switerland County is available.

Hi there!

I was working on cleaning up the last name Pennington on here and came across several individuals from your gedcom import. I just wanted to let you know / remind you that if a person is living and NOT a member of Wikitree, they must have an unlisted profile - my assumption is you may not have known.

A couple of those profiles that are unclear:

  • Pennington-222
  • Pennington-403
  • The three children of Pennington-208

Best of luck!

James Aaron Barbee


I have found out that there are 2 different James Aaron Barbees, Both buried at the same Cemetery! Crazy isn't it!? FAG# 119344004 and FAG# 42067999!

Not realizing that, and thinking the the children and wives were on the wrong Barbee, I accidently unlinked those. Please forgive me.

I've just joined Wikitree, my first GEDCOM load includes 3 John Pennington that you manage: Pennington-632 born 1464, Ravenglass, Cumberland, England, United Kingdom died 28 Jun 1516, Uttlesford, Essex, England, United Kingdom Pennington-641 John Pennington III born 24 Sep 1434, Muncaster Castle, Ravenglass, Cumbria, England died 3 May 1512, Ravenglass, Cumberland, England;


Pennington642 John Pennington II born 28 Oct 1419, Lancashire, England died 1460, Essex, England. My information has more exact dates and has places. Unfortunately, not even the dates in the profiles you manage match the dates in mine. One is off by a year, another by 4 years, the last by 9 years. It may help to know I also have two more John Penningtons: V, b. 1485 and VI, b. 1530; and Margaret and Sir Alan. Are we a match or should I tell GEDCOMpare to reject the match? Sorry to bother, thanks for any help!

Hi there. I see that you are adding a lot of references from Find A Grave. I have recently learned that we should be using the Source Citation (it's at the very bottom of the Find A Grave Profile page). Once you copy out that source citation you can replace "Find A Grave Memorial no. 1234" with Find A Grave: Memorial #1234. That makes a nice source with a link right to the profile page.

Here's the Info on using Find A Grave "Find A Grave Memorial no. 1234" with Find A Grave: Memorial #1234."

Hi MG,

I saw your addition of Marriage info here to Watkins-145 and thought this probably comes from Ancestry and that you might be interested in this Template:Ancestry_Record so you can link to the information on Ancestry.

See my edit to Watkins for an example.

Let me know if you need help using it.

By the way, we are using "Colony of Virginia" for pre-1776 locations and we never use abbreviations for states like VA since folks overseas are unlikely to know them and instead spell it out as Virginia.

Since you manage a number of Prentiss profiles I invite you to check-out the new One Name Study for the Prentice surname.

Could I please be added to the trusted list for UNKNOWN-11658, Seney-19, and Seney-128? Thanks!

I saw that, but others have him listed as being born elsewhere and other than those census reports there’s no documentation as to which one is correct. I’ve had several ancestors put the wrong birthplace on their census records, especially later in life.
