Thank you so very much. I have been doing genealogy for many years, but I am still learning the the methods procedures of WikiTree.

Hi Dave. Did you realize your merge of Eliza Sickelsteel left her with two husbands with the same name? You might want to go back and fix that. Profile merges often leave duplicates behind that need cleaning up.

Thanks for completing the merge. Happy treeing Anne.

Thank you for the information regarding my Barnes profile. Things should start working their way to the surface soon enough.

Dave, I just started to enter profiles that came up from family search. I started to enter them and watched to see if anything would come up and nothing did, so I gleefully entered the 'new' profiles. This has been happening to me infrequently but enough that to say the least, I am quite "annoyed" with the belief I am so inept that I would not be paying attention to this with all of the enteries I've made. I was suspended from using Wikitree. I wasn't happy about that and I do not want it to happen again. Do you know why I am not seeing these profiles that are already created?

Hi Dave, I was pleased to see you featured this week. Thanks so much for your and Brenda's work on Teeters. I left a comment on the MotW but it doesn't seem to be showing up.

As you know, Brenda and I are 7th cousins through Coonrod Teeter and Michael's marriage to a Loyalist war widow is how (in part) Brenda's Teeters and my mother's Teeters ended up on the opposite sides of the NY-US/ON-CA border.

Thanks for all you do.

Congrats, Dave, on being Member of the Week. Just 14 degrees of separation. Why am I not surprised?
