Hi Topher,

Thank you for your contributions to our tree. I notice that you have been helping with categories and setting up needed merges. This is appreciated.

But please be careful when adding data from your gedcom. In some cases, it is just adding things like "No biography yet." on profiles where biographies exist, or it is adding other "gedcom junk" that should be deleted.

Thanks !
