Although a date is given, it is not always accurate unless there is a citation attached. I do plan to go back through past posts and get the citations attached to each family member and if time permits, a link to the cited document(s). All thought I believe most of the information be to somewhat accurate, I do value any and all criticism and help in finding the correct information.
