PLEASE REALIZE - THE vast majority of what you see in FamilySearch -- was in some way made possible by in part (and often a LARGE PART) by VOLUNTEERS.

Just adding branches that have not previously appeared in Family Tree is my main contribution. I started this to clear-up the mess between IDs / branches of similar identity. The obstinate user will still insist that therir "Family Bible" detail carries precedence over no amount of evidence to the contrary, but I have found it of great pleasure to separate the muddled records of cousins (of the same name) and even totally unrelated families who have been treated as if they were connected.
Many users seem not to think it right that others should interfere with "their family", but I treat my work on unrelated families with just as much respect for accuracy as if they were my own (close) relatives.1
Thanks for your service!!!0
