Why am I so interested, and Why do I care so much?

For me, it was from being interested in learning and wanting to connect the origins of names and different regions. And my highest interest in educational History. Is the history of Christianity from the first century in Turkey(Asia Minor),Egypt,and Rome too the history of the "Early Anglo-Saxon Christian Conversion" in in the British Isles,(named Briton), And also in Eastern Europe of Scandinavia and Germany.

There is some very interesting things going on during(too be brief and bold) the 1st thousand years A.D. along those lines of the world and it's ancient History.( I said though very brief)

Here:CHURCH FATHERS: Home you can find the grand majority of the Ancient writings from the "Church Fathers" or the "Venerable Saints". A lot of these writings have much great History. And priceless preserved history.

The quote I'm going too put at the bottom is by one one of my favorites among the many ancient.writers "Saint Bede", in a one and only English translation of this work (and isn't on the above website,but there is a well formatted Ebook version) called "The Reckoning of Time",[Page.54];written by; "Saint Bede" in the years.C.722-C.725,A.D.;Translated by "Faith Wallis",1999,Liverpool University press;Edited by The "Editorial Committee of Liverpool University,(1999)"


"has a name which is now translated "Paschal month", and which was once called after a goddess of theirs named "Eostre", in whose honour feasts were celebrated in that month. "Now they designate that Paschal season by her name, calling the joys of the new rite by the time-honoured name of the old observance."

Ibid;"The Reckoning of Time",[Page.54];written by "Saint Bede" in the years. C.722-C.725,A.D.;Translated by "Faith Wallis" in,1999,published by "Liverpool University press";General Editors;"Gillian Clark", University of Liverpool;and "Mary Whitby" Oxford ;Edited by;"The Editorial Committee of Liverpool University,(1999)":

Purpose and meaning of genealogical Histories

Trying to find our living relative/es to where It has the potential to connect the inner/outer emotional connection with thousands(realistically) Too fully!!.. understand we're equal in trait but differ in driven interests and specialty. Which must really the greatest thing ever. Looking into what unknown historical context can be discovered UNDERNEATH MUCH of it's revolving popular view matching up 1st hand authentic documented evidence;Tax scrolls,execution letters(deeds),court hearings, baptisms,weddings,funerals. the catch is Unless highly secured and, or, conservatively will generally deem them much more difficult too obtain for research especially if the purpose for an individual families genealogy over 300+ years ago!! and solely dealing with the specific individual names!? No we could not download free pdf books back then. So if lost, by mistake or stolen, then the picture is obvious where concise (AKA) NOTES of thought begins.IT should begin with how do these websites know so much that is unknown?Well be sure too give it the benefit of the bought and go investigate it, give it very critical thinking.All in terms of historical context,the system or language as a whole usually dealing with consonants and phonics, just take your self back to that time in an educated and practicing way.check photos of buildings. like an Cathedral, or museum for example most definitely how they have proven well preserved. try in searching different styles of records as well such as wall painting with historical influence, inscriptions and symbolism's of shared general regional views or encoded linguistics such as Maltese perhaps(Which was invented to be encoded writing of Roman numerals with combined Yiddish/Aramaic dialects as vocabulary bank) But even though your open minded understand that calling out what's false in the name of education is 100% appropriate when addressed so in an polite humble way. So the opposite of condescending,the opposite of hasty backlash such as "well Tom, you would be correct if you understood a false pedigree written durind so,so,so's kingship, Really!!? looks like, It originated with blah,blah,blah. and you maybe able to prove it but it's impossible"(so give up in other words)

Just remember to try an hold said person accountable if rejecting something that may be true or false. focus on it when you have or if you have the time too give. You may want to ask more questions at that point.(correct or incorrect) if your going about it on a fair level your mind will be clear an open to gain the new knowledge and be corrected if even applicable in listening all ears while other one is being polite or saying little if nothing if you understand, and trading the same courtesy of a non personal respecting rebuttal if need be...BUT AT THE SAME TIME IF YOU ARE NEW OR SEASONED EVEN UP TOO ALL COSMOS OF ACADEMICAL HORAS,DON'T...LET...The...statement that's been made be the FINAL...DEFAULT...CONCLUSION. UNLESS..IT..CAN..BE..PROVEN.

Standards of research hold absolutely no favorites Of ones achievements, nor any grudge for ones honest even borderline sketchy Mistakes. ""But when intentions are forced upon jesting, and destroying someones hard work (even if they saved it to a file) you might as well have pulled that trigger, because that is how much hate has been given, which is equivalent too destroying our fight for a correct answer on said persons Geology ,Our true achievements. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR BEING SO INTELLIGENT AND HELPFUL!!!! THANK YOU MUCH FOR READING THIS AND ALL OF YOU HARD CONTRIBUTED WORK MUCH LOVE XD

Thank you f or responding. Yeah I figured it was at least worth bringing up, because it then may give a higher just for his wikitree profile too pop up for him in the internet search engines.

Hi Troy, REgarding George Washington's profile. The Wikitree Guidelines state "If a person has multiple prefixes or titles use the highest, last or preferred one", the reason for the use of President. That said, per once a person is no longer president, they should not be called president. I think this is a great subject for G2G. Thanks for bringing it up!

Benjamin was born in 1761. He passed away in 1840.needs citation,find a, is only an addition in the "see also" section XD

This is understandable I currently stopped putting additions till I make sure my gedcom has the sources attached. Perhaps I will just proofread profiles instead of adding profiles. To me the ease of use here is a bit of a hurdle. In my defense in the profile for Sally (Emery) Redon the bibliography states-she was the daughter of Benjamin and Mercy (Monlton) Emery, of Buxton Wife of Amos Redlon (1782 - 1860)married on Oct. 28, 1802 - without any citation. and yes i already read the see also section.

It is possible that William and Robert Knight are related. I don't know how common a name it was then. If we had more sources on Richard's profile, we might have more to go on....

Happy hunting, Sharon

Hi Troy,

You recently added Junr as a suffix to William Hancock*3451. I find no sources that he used that suffix. Do you have one, by chance? Thank you, Sharon
