Basic hints on how to differentiate a source which you should consider uncertain. This crucial information is unfortunately hidden in the "Uncertain" help page.
I was born and raised in a small village ouside the suburbs of Paris, France. My father is from the same village; his mother was Swiss-born. My mother on the other hand, is a true Fleming from Lille, with lots of Belgian ancestors.
I work full time as a computer programmer. Favorite hobbies are genealogy, cross-stitching, reading and - when I am not too tired of feeding my three teenage or pre-teen daughters - cooking. I also look forward to having more time to travel, in the future.
My family tree was started more than 30 years ago with data from my great-grandparents "livret de famille" - the small booklet the mayor gives you when you get married, which is an official document. I thought my great-great-grandma had an interesting name and that's how I caught the bug.
In spite of my extensive Belgian ancestry (overwhelmingly Flemish), I can't speak Dutch. I read just enough of it to read civil registration records, though.
I have no famous cousins, and therefore cannot list them here. As a consolation, let me collect "trophies": here are the Notables I connected to the main tree:
|Clémentine Solignac||Supercentenarian||Complicated connection going through Belgium|
|Gabrielle Chanel||Fashion designer||Connected through her niece's marriage to Maurice Gay de Nexon|
|Denis Diderot||Author||Tough connexion involving the creation of Goüin family members, also used to connect Nicolas Sarkozy.|
|Emile Zola||Author||Connected through his grand-daughter's marriage to a descendant of the Mieg/Dollfus/Koechlin family group from the Republic of Mulhouse|
|Bernadette & Jacques Chirac||Politician||This used Madame Chirac's family, first though the Chodron de Courcels, later improved with a Lasteyrie du Saillant connection|
|Nicolas Sarkozy||Politician||Connected through his father's marriage to Christine de Ganay|
|Louis Aragon, Elsa Triolet and Lili Brik||Authors|
|Raymond Poincaré & cousin Henri Poincaré||Politican and mathematician|
|Michel Ney||Marshall of the First Empire|
|Pierre de Coubertin|
|Ferdinand de Lesseps|
|Michel de Montaigne||Author|
|Michel Motier de La Fayette|
|Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec||Painter|
|John Silver Sargent||Painter|

And thanks for all info, these profiles were (and some still are) all duplicated a lot (all NNS ancestors) so for those it's often important they are managed by a relevant Project to make sure there is a (PPP) profile for all of them the new duplicates can be merged into and of course and probably most important is they are accurate, sourced and improved, so if sources prove they are not someones parents that's fine.
We always will leave them all attached, and if you suspect uncertain parents, mark parents uncertain, until there's proof that really shows things are totally wrong, then we will add a post and a note to the profiles involved with links to them all saying ... and .. were not his or her parents so things are corrected and they are detached now. etc, and detache them. (also the parents that are detached will have a note with the link to where they came from, to make sure no one is going to add a new wrong child for them of course.)
Hope it helps and makes it a bit more clear, we are managing a lot of these kind of profiles, so it would be great if you all could help and find sources for them, they have been waiting for quite some time now eeh ;)
Greets and have a wonderful day,

MatchBot is limited to proposing 50 merges a day. I haven't quite figured out when he proposes them, but it's sometime in the wee hours where I am (East Coast USA).
Thanks again, and give me a holler if you have any questions.

Meetings is in the heading. Some meetings I've found were Monthly, then Yearly, then Bi-Annual, then back to Monthly. For this reason I was leaving them as only the place. There are multiple categories for meetings that have other categories for Annual, Quarterly, etc. I do not know if this is advantageous or useless reiteration.
