problem with an ancester with multible conflicting info
I have been trying to obtain the correct information on my 7th great-grandfather. I have multiple birthdates, names, birthplaces, and wives. The death information is correct through all resources. The names are Andreas Martin Kepner 1699-1766, Andreas Martin Kepner 1700-1766, Johannes Andreas Kepner 1699-1766, Andrew Kepler 1699-1766.
Our last name has many variations. Keplar, Kepler, Kepner, Keppler, Capler, ect.
I have resources information from gravestones, Find a grave, Ancestry, Family search, genealogieonline/stamboom and Ludwig, story of a dozen generations, Heritage, GeneaNet. These sites contain multiple profiles of this person under different names.
How do I untangle this giant mess to get the correct information? Most of the profiles share the same information when it comes to wives and children with some variants.
I sure could use some insight before I go insane trying to figure this out.
Thanks for any help.
