Researching genealogy is much like figuring out large, complex software, which I did professionally for over 35 years. As a geographer, the connections between families and their migrations are fascinating.

My ancestors lived in Central New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut and Iowa.

Surnames include: Sands, Ayer, Salisbury, Whiting (formerly Whiton), Cornish, Burk, Spinning, Stoner, Scranton, Sanford, Reed, Toepelt (Tapelt, Taplet, Taplett) and others.

Currently working on finishing up some Sands, Cornish, and Whiting and beginning some work on Scranton and Sanford.

Yes you have the LNAB, first and second marriage surname correct for the profile of Margaret. The profile looks great!

Hi Kay,

Yes you can use your birth record on your fathers profile as well as his birth date(s) as listed on the census and death records as sources. If you do not know the exact birth date for your father put it in as shown on the census or death record and click uncertain.

If you. your mother and siblings are mentioned in the census records for your father then you can also use them as a source on your own profile as well as theirs.

And I'm here to help too, just ask!

How is it going so far? Have the How-Tos been helpful or left you with questions?

P.S. Sometimes links don't work in emails. You can always find a link that works in the public comments on your profile.

Thanks, Cindy

LOL I think I'll keep my Smiths and Campbells. They gave their children unique names which makes it pretty easy to find them.

You have been busy! Conflated profiles are tough and the Samuel Sands profile is looking good. Thanks for sharing it. I enjoyed seeing how you're doing!

Hi Kay, Thank you for the note and questio about using mark up on G2G.

The short answer is no we do not use a wiki markup, such as [ url clickMe ] on a G2G question, answer or comment.

When you ask a question, answer a question or post a reply a new box opens and at to top it has the featured to add a URL to text. or to copy a URL address and paste it to the box, attach a picture, bold, italic and more.

I suggest you go to the Weekend Chat click comment, as a question and then see the features offered in the box that opens, f you do not want to use the box after entering info simply click cancel.

Later when I have time I will see if I can find or create a copy of the box as I call it.

Thank you, David ~ Intergrators G2G Project Coordinator, Mentor
