When you see a grave marker and you know that the person was buried there, there is the option of putting [ [ uncertain: death location ] ] (with no spaces seperating the box brackets) to that this is likely to be the place of death. Further on in the profile, we leave and explanation as to why it's uncertain. I was taught this here. Somebody told me that it was the standard way when we have grave information. It seems that too many people want or expect for things to be done in a different way, making it nearly impossible to create merge for profiles. If there are a hundred people with dates only, and no location, they get skipped over during merges, because you have to look through the entire profile to see if you can find any indication of location.

Hi Dave

I’m the new Project Coordinator for the England Project. I am contacting you, as there have been some recent changes to the project which we are keen to bring to your attention. Please look at the England Project page for more information on the changes and the ways members are able to actively contribute moving forward. Once you have considered how you would like to participate, please contact either myself or Susie to let us know. We can then list your involvement, help you join the Google group forum for England, and give you any other help you may need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you do not wish to be a part of the England Project for the time being. We really hope you will join the team! Gillian

Hi, I came across this man (what a complex life he lived, warrior yet Anglican catechist/layreader, Bible translator) after getting interested in a question on G2G about the wife of a man called Allen Sage who was linked in marriage to Catherine Brant.

You can see what I thought, though don't think that the profile manger was in agreement https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/489584/need-help-with-a-decision
