Firstly, many thanks for all your work. Next, re Thomas Maxwell I108550 you correctly have him as the son of the 1st Baronet of Orchartoun, but his brother Robert, the 2nd Bt (who's son was the 3rd Bt) is not mentioned. The 4th-7th Bts descend from Thomas. I have a pedigree which I can email to you, if you send me your email.. Many thanks

Hi, I make Elizabeth Glendoning I108548 daughter to be by her first husband John Maxwell 2nd son of the 3rd Earl of Nithsdale, from my reading of p 487 of Scots Peerage - I admit it is confusing, but there would be no sense in them putting her as the daughter of someone else (i.e not under that particular peerage). Kind regards

Can you tell me how you put the button links on the bottom of your great pages? I am starting a Who's Who section that I made in the Media section. I would also like to make an information page with a similar link button, which would house things like articles. For instance Encyclopaedia Brittannica has a nice article on the House of Plantagenet, and one describing differences in Dukes, Lords, etc. I hope I have given proper credits for your wonderful site, although I know I have missed some when I have been tired or in a hurry. Hopefully I will tidy things up, although I can see this can become a life's work!

The Who's Who, Sources, In War, and Changes pages I coded myself, using HTML, CSS, and this JavaScript ToolTip generator by Walter Zorn: [www.walterzorn.de]

As for putting the links at the bottom of the page, TNG (The Next Generation) has a footer.php file. You put your footer code into footer.php and upload it to your TNG installation.

I am curious about the reliability number. Did you assign it and, if so, how did you determine it?

Thanks,
Barb

The software I use to maintain my data (Legacy) allows me to assign numbers 0 through 4 for reliability of a citation and defines 0 as "undecided".

I generally assign 4 to source documents or facsimiles: census records, marriage licenses, death certificates, obituaries.

If a FamilySearch International Genealogical Index record has a scan of a death certificate I mark the citation as "verified" and assign a reliability of 4. With no scan of the document I assign a 3.

I generally assign a reliability of 2 to FamilySearch Pedigree Resource Files and Ancestry Files and RootsWeb or other unsourced and uncited online genealogies ... or even 1 if the data looks flakey. I do not consider a list of sources at the end of the genealogy to be "cited". Cited means each item of data is sourced.

There's also how I'm feeling at the time, the mood I'm in, and if I remember to set a reliability when I create the citation.

If it has a 4 you can generally assume I have seen a reliable source document, or a scan of one.

I generally give Find-A-Grave a reliability of 2 or 3, about the same as a FamilySearch Pedigree Resource File, unless they include an obituary with the name and date of the newspaper or other publication. Frankly, some of the stuff on Find-A-Grave is blithering nonsense.

As with the FamilySearch International Genealogical Index, if they provide a scan of the document I will give it a reliability of 4.

Legacy provides the following guidelines for assigning reliability:
0 - have not decided yet
1 - marginal evidence
2 - probable conclusion
3 - almost certain conclusion
4 - convincing evidence

What does this have to do with anyone in my data? Nothing that I can see.

But thanks anyway.

Thank you for your work. It's definitely fun to read through and gives a good jumping off place to further document or verify from. I have used your materials and sources in the past. I descend through the Garretts and Owsleys. It is through the Owsley/Poyntz lines, I believe,I apparently trace back to Charlemagne.That was a shocking eyeopener when I discovered that a couple of years back! :)

Just discovered I’m related to William HOGUE 1660-1749 child of Sir James and Marjorie HOGUE. He married Barbara Lambert HUME in 1695. William died in Frederick County, Virginia. William and Barbara are my 8X GG.


J. Craig Canada Saturday, 17 December 2016 08:00
Do you have a source for the "Lambert" part? I mean besides some wiki entry that cites a FamilySearch "contribution" for a source?

Marjorie Lambert was Barbara's husband's mother, wife of Sir James Hoge. So why on earth would she be called Lambert-Hume?

Barbara's mother, wife of Hume, was Marjorie Johnstone. If anything, Barbara would be Johnstone-Hume.

Or Hoge-Hume.

My opinion is that you get a "C" for presentation and a low "D" for technical. Sorry, but the internet is just getting up to speed [in 2016] where one can accomplish much that was not possible a mere five years ago.

I see a lot of 'hooey' [such as the references to the Australopithecine called Adam and Kin Priam of Troy.

Keep at it though, in another 10-20 years you might 'get' there.

I am in awe of the "extras" that you have built into your site. The content and the presentation are both superior.

I am a distant cousin, descending from John Ware GARRETT, III (1675-1728). I am in constant search of extended family data and am so glad I happened upon your site.

Heartiest congratulations!

Very imparessive. I really appreciate the Gregg research. I am a cousin, descendant of William Hanby and Mary Pedrick, parents of Mary Hanby who married George Gregg.
They were from Salem Co. NJ, moved to West Nottingham PA. Attended New Garden and Nottingham mm where they would have meet the Greggs.

Very impressive!!! I'm researching the guy who edited the San Francisco Examiner -- Benjamin Franklin Washington. I can't seem to locate a library that has microfilm or digital copies of the paper for the 1860's. Do you know where I can find it?
Thanks,
Bill

Just wanted to say how much I love your site and the information you've shared. I've worked on several other lines for many years, but I'm only starting to tackled the Farrar/Barnett ones. Thank you for your dedication to accuracy!
