I have been getting "Hints" for obituaries in genealogybank.com. The obits are generally for a moth
An example is my grandfather shows a hint for an obit that is my grandmother's. When I review the hint, should my grandmother's obit be attached to my grandfather? Also to her children, listed in the obit? If not, how do I remove that hint? I'm scared to say "Not a Match", for fear of doing something irreversible.
Sorry to be pest. Thank you!
If someone is mentioned in the obituary and especially if it is indexed and offered as a hint then yes you attach it to each person mentioned in the obituary. It helps show the relationships between people. If you mark not a match then it can mess with the computer algorithm that gave you the hint and may give less good hints in the future. You can never have too many sources for a person, attach anything if it is correct.0
That is exactly what I needed to know. Thank you Cindy!0
Obituaries can be viewed sort of like Census records. they can show family groups and so they get attached to everyone in the group.0
