Tree updated at last!

I cannot believe how the last 12 months has flown. It’s taken a year but I’ve finally updated the tree on my blog (find it here).
The update is substantial (approximately 45% more people and 71% more families!) and corrects some previous errors.
This update will be rolled out to Genes Reunited, Ancestral Atlas and Ancestry in due course.

Mistakes will happen … but confirm & move on

Whilst searching RootsWeb today (another valuable resource), I came across a page which suggested I had made another mistake on an ancestor’s surname.

I had my gt(x3)-grandmother as Ann MEASBY, but the new source suggested it was MEASDY (or MEASDAY). I rechecked her marriage certificate (which I have), and sure enough, I had misread the (poor) handwriting for the father’s (sur)name. Double-checking the witnesses confirmed them as Sarah MEASDY and Charles MEASDY, not the former MEASBY.

Never assume you’re wrong, but never believe only you could be right … I was fortunate enough to have the certificate to double-check and confirm the new source information.

I will update the tree accordingly soon.
