Hi Michael,

I had recently been contacted by a Baltzer Kolb descendant on Ancestry, but I notice that Culp-1025, who is apparently a descendant of Baltzer, has a very different haplogroup (I-P37) than the R-M405 that characterizes Dielman descendants.

HI: Regarding Margaret Odding profile..you caught me I did remove myself from the profile when I got your email. Forgive me

as I didn't want to get involved with that profile at all with all those profile mangers. Until later...M PS her husband is in my linage mostly Porter, Poole, Penny, Killam , and the list goes on and on.

Hi Michael: Thanks for getting in touch regarding Margaret Odding. I am no longer a profile manager of that profile. To many profile managers. Please contact another manager as they are more experienced in sourcing etc . :) M.

re Wilmot-692 - no, I have only the ancestry.com info I started with long ago and only realized slowly how unreliable some of it is. There is also https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/173835130/Nicholas-Wilmot. In the process of looking at your question I realized that somehow the gedcompare missed 2 nicholas wilmots that already exist (also siting Benjamin Wilmot as father btw). I will set mine up to merge with Wilmot-150 but another merge with Wilmot-214 is still pending apparently
