Source of note attached to great grandfather's profile Harold Arthur Crighton/Crichton
I asked user MJ Hurter about it, but he said he only edited the note and that Family Search (? FS archivists/volunteers) had posted the original note. What is the source of this info - it would help my research greatly if I could find out and contact the person who posted the note.
When some of the previous versions of the FS website were moved to the newer version, the names of contributors were lost and replaced by the generic FamilySearch reference. In other words, that comment was probably not posted by FamilySearch but rather by someone who worked on the profile at an earlier time.
I sometimes see things I posted years ago attributed to "FamilySearch."0
Many thanks - would there be any way of finding out who the original contributor was?1
You might check the changelog of the PID (profile) and see if there are any other contributor names there.
Is the "Sussanna Johanna Le Grange" a signature - possibly the person who left the comment?0
No, Susanna Johanna Le Grange was the name of Harold Arthur Crighton/Crichton's wife - the name of the ancestor (1898 - unknown) the contributor was looking for. It would be very helpful to identify this contributor, because the comment about SJ Le Grange living in Port Elizabeth seems plausible, because her father and brother lived there. It indicates that this contributor's information was likely accurate. I will try to check the changelog of the profile.0
Well, given that Family Tree is based on historical records, you could treat that note as a research hint and never mind who wrote it. Whether it is correct or not, it remains a hint not a record.1
Based on contributions around that time (2013) I have an idea who it might be and will contact them.0
