Catching up

I have not been posting to this blog, but have been busy.

I sent this as an e-mail to my cousins and family.

A few weeks ago I was on Family Search because someone had made a change on a record that I had put a watch on. 

It led me to pull out my Stoltz/Stults files. I had received quite a lot of information from a lady by the name of Denise Rosenbluth. She and a lady by the name of Ora Porter Wood had done a great amount of research on this family. 

I had not been working on this line since I was in Germany. I had entered the names into PAF and called it my Altgelt Frankfurt file. 

I came across someone in Family Tree who had a source from Find A Grave. When I looked at the record I was curious as to who had entered the information since there was no cemetery noted in Germany. 

I emailed him and he replied and gave me access to his website with 24,000 individuals going back to 1404.  His name is Andrew Outcalt.

I have received some files from him, which I would like to share with you. 

I have been working on the Stambaum pictured above and making sure that all the names are in Family Tree. 

This is a preliminary report. I am happy to answer any questions you might have. I have a great deal of work yet to do.  I attached a tree document to show how my family is connected to the Altgelts.

More correspondance with Family Search

Details: Laura Gee 1878-Deceased • 9NQL-T1X listed as Male Laura Gee 1878-Deceased • 9VY9-3B5 Female. She is listed as a female in this family in the 1880 and the 1900 census I am unable to merge these two because of the difference in sexes. Please refer to Data Administration

Details: Harry Lukin 23 April 1897 – Deceased • L76B-JLK Female the source lists this as questionable sex. Parents are John Lukin Deceased • L76B-JLL Ernnretta Ken Deceased • L76B-JLG Here is the real Harry Harry Lukin 1897-1967 • KZZ4-WZZ He is a male. Parents are John Luken 1858-Deceased • KHYT-3D2 Emeretta Kerr 1860-1880 • LCVD-3F Because the two Harrys are of different sex I cannot merge them. I have eliminated the duplication of parents and now both Harrys appear in the same family. One with a birth date 2 days after the other. I would appreciate it if you could send this to Data Administration for correction.

More merging in Family Tree

In looking at the descendants of Solomon Gee database, I found the following information. It comes through the descendants of Salmon Gee.  

Annie Marilla Davis KWCF-64W 8 July 1875 – 1 April 1971
All ordinances complete
Annie Mayrilla Davies
8 July 1875 – Deceased • K2W9-MFN

ordinances only partially complete, but the baptism and confirmation dates are the same for both individuals..

Seem to be the same individual. I am unable to merge.

Duplicates Abound

Family Tree is a work in progress. Today I found a duplicate that I could not merge, so I sent the following message to Family Search.

1884-1931    •  K2HX-V98 is the wife of

Daniel H. Simkins

5 January 1883 – 21 January 1951  •  KWJ8-8ZV
They have 5 children listed

She is also listed under the ID of LKVB-MZL with no children.

The program will not let me combine the two individuals, although they are the same.

Would you please forward this to Data Administration for correction?
