Guidance on sources
I am a ward FH consultant and received this request from a ward member which is over my head. Can anyone help? Ann is his wife and from Belgium. Our local consultants have no answer.
Ann has a relative that put together an eleven generation family history book with hundreds of names. I’m making entries into Ann’s line that haven’t been entered before. We know of the relative and know that he put a great deal of effort into the record he built, but he doesn’t include any sources in the document. He mentions in the preamble that he found records from municipal sources, and I have seen where he has left blanks where he couldn’t verify dates/places. Should I stop creating records until we can verify sources ourselves? I know the church has done a lot of indexing for Belgium. Where would be a good place to look for record sources? Many relatives were born in or around Merchtem, Flemish Brabant, Belgium for the last century. Does Familysearch have collections for European areas?
