HI Jean. I've been developing the Nelson profiles and note that you made an interesting addition to Josiah Nesbit. It appears to be a verbatim copy of something else but I cannot find the source on the profile. Can you let me know where it's from so that I can either link to it or paraphrase it citing the source? Thank you.

Jean, I started the Unresponsive PM protocol for Nesbitt-28. The PM's GEDcom upload was over 2,200 profiles - all unsourced and many with the same dates. Next week there will be Campbell-Charsha Family Tree.ged orphans galore. I'm working on -28, but it won't make a big dent in that colossal mess.

Hi Jean,

I notice you're adding the category NNs_of_Scotland. I'd offer to add them on my line, but am up to my ears in bio-writing on others right now. If you're in the mood, you can follow the line from my mother-in-law, Margaret Nisbet back to Adam & Eve :) There are probably 100-200 Nisbets in that line.
