Note: This poem reflects how I felt when I stood at the headstone of George Sims and Elizabeth Ann Pilcher my gr grandparents in Barham Kent England in 2000
"Dear Ancestor --
Your tombstone stands among the rest; Neglected and alone The name and date are chiseled out On polished, marble stone It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn You did not know that I exist You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse Entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.
Author - Unknown"

I see you have been working on the Philpott line. Thank you for adding to our global tree and expanding this line :)
I saw you had added Find My Past as a source on these pre-1700 profiles. I am sure, as an experienced Wikitreer, you are aware that this is not adequate for pre-1700 profiles.
Would you please link to the actual record :)
If you need assistance with this please drop me a note, I am happy to help :)
Thank you :)

I was using a new tool for finding errors.
If you go to the profile for a (non-private) ancestor, and select "Error Report" from the pull down menu, it will give you a list of real and potential errors in related profiles (including ones not on your watch list).
The tool is discussed on the G to G tag "db_errors". For instance http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/252903/guidelines-for-working-database-errors

Saw your proposed merge of Boys-117 and Bois-29 .
Just wanted to let you know that, since the other manager did not respond in 30 days, you can go ahead and complete the merge yourself.
