Hi Elizabeth, I hope you don't mind that I did some changes on the page for Martha A. Wakeman. I have been adding all of the Wakeman's in the U.S. and have a lot of info on them if you need any help in this area. Dave Wakeman
Hi Elizabeth - the Timothy Burr merge looks fine to me; this is a record created from an older genealogist in my wife's family and I know nothing about it, so if you have a potential merge I'd go for it as it will be a while before I can get around to combing through some of the individuals in the GEDCOM upload. I didn't get a notification about a merge request initially but I may have missed it.
Hi Elizabeth, just a general question. I noticed that you corrected a lot of the current last name of my female family members. Is there a special reason why you did this? Within the Dutch Roots group we talked about what was 'common' and it is not needed to register females with current last name as name from their husband. So that's the reason why I left it like that. Especially for the current generation, because it's not needed in the Netherlands to use the name of your husband. So I was wondering why it was corrected.
