Hi Robert,

Back in December I sent you requests to be on Richard Eccles-4's and Mary Platts-5's trusted lists. Would you please approve them?

Thank you, S

Hi Robert

I sent you a request to be added to Hannah Eckles-16's trusted list about a week ago. Hannah is a direct ancestor of my family. Would you please add me to her trusted list?

Thank you, S

Hi Robert,

Thanks for having a big heart and adopting the Orphaned Profiles. This After Adopting Orphans FAQ explains the special attention adopted profiles sometimes need.

Let me know if you have any questions on how to find and record sources, merge duplicates, clean up gedcom biographies, and interpret the Suggestions report. I'm here to help!

Regarding Isaac Terrill. Please compare my cousin's R.W. Terrell's DNA on GEDmatch. His # is T150999 and use min segment cM of 6 because it is so far back.

Hi Robert,

Please add me to the Trusted List for Peckham-623, Peckham-622, Valliance-4. I want to be able to get automatic notification of changes to those profiles and being on the Trusted List is the way to that.

You recently changed Kingman-1445 from "Unknown" to Kingman.

She had originally been listed on wikitree as Kingman-1416, but I had changed her LNAB to "Unknown" a while back because I can find no evidence either way to support her being a Kingman.

The surviving marriage records for John Nash do not record his wife's surname, she is listed only as Mary -------- with an approximate marriage date and a full date of death.

There is also no listing that I can find of a Mary Kingman being born in the area in the right timeframe. There are two Kingman sons of Henry having children in the Massachusetts Bay area in the 1670s but neither of them have a recorded daughter called Mary.

Could you please share your source for asserting her LNAB.

That should have been Eckles-16 not 14.

Robert, I was working on errors when I discovered Eckles-14 and Eckles-43. I am looking for the mother of Tabitha Brooks and I believe the wrong one is shown as her mother. Could they be the same person or are they connected wrong?

Thank you, Robert, for information on my Great-great-great-great Grandfather Gideon Tirrell's ancestry! You take me back deep into family history!

Robert, I cant' guess what caused you to conclude that John Atwood born 1694 (Atwood-1046) was really your ancestor Joseph Atwood born 1685, nor that John's son Joshua born 1723 (Atwood-1051) was really your ancestor Joshua Atwood, son of Joseph. Apparently, there were multiple families named Atwood in Massachusetts in the late 1600s and 1700s. Please create new profiles for your family members and restore these to profiles to their previous condition.

Did you know that if you have relatives who cannot be connected (yet) to an existing profile, you can create brand new profiles for them using (That link is available on the menu under "Add" -- choose "New Person.")

i am searching for my family alfred cumbe borned in wantage oxfordshire england and his parents and family,my grandfather was william david combs born in 1891 died in 1949,would you please help
Hi Robert,

I see you are working on merges, you may want to review Matching and Merging FAQ to understand your responsibilities in doing merges.

Remember, after the merge you will want to clean up the text. During a merge, the text from the merged-away profile is simply appended onto the end of the text of the merged-into profile. You will want to integrate it into a single biography and a single sources section.

You will also want to review all other family members for potential duplicates and review any conflicts in parents. If you have any questions, just let me know.

Hi Robert, I see that you added back in a specific birth date and place for William Bassett-5. If you read the narrative, you'll see that it has not been proven that William Bassett the immigrant was baptized in Sandwich on that date-- in fact, apparently no such baptism has been found. Do you have newer information?
