Hi Mindy -

Thanks for your offer of help. I have a few questions I’d like your opinion on. First, some of the clearest sources for some of my ancestors that I’ve seen are Sons of the American Revolution membership applications, but so far I’ve only seen those inside ancestry.com. Are there free versions somewhere? Second, what do you do, if anything, about obvious spelling inconsistencies? My surname is frequently mis-spelled, and I’ve already seen cases of siblings with different spellings (one has Swartwout and the other has Swartout, for example) Thanks, Don

I don't have any questions right now, but once I finish adding to my tree and once I get as far as some of my brick walls, I probably will have plenty. Thank you again.

Thank you for answering my question about categories. I've looked at the links you provided. But no where are there specific instructions on 'how to add a new town' to the category in question (i.e., Category: County Armagh)

Can you provide specific instructions? Thanks again -

Thanks Mindy,

I am have trouble figuring out if WIKI can help me solve an Unknown Father. I keep getting lost in all the sections ya'll have. Wonderful sections, I might add. I am also getting ready to upload pictures for an Italian side that I have found many members on Ancestry interested in. Hope I can be helpful too by tracking gravestones in Charleston SC. Regina

Hi Mindy,

Thank you for checking. I am plugging along slowly but surely. I have a lot of info to input & time is my problem.

Hi Mindy

I still don't understand what else I need to do on some of my gedcom imports. My earlier imports I have completed all the comparisons and clicked the check box, but they won't add to my tree. I don't want to go through the effort on the other files if this isn't going to work, so that is why they are incomplete.

Do you have any suggestions? I have already reviewed the forum.

Hi Mindy, thanks for the welcome. Yes, I'm enjoying. Just getting my barrings. Now I'm moving onto research, is the best way to go about this using the rootsearch tool? I see some pages you list here on your bio. I will look into them!
