I am happy to inform all those interested in our James West descendant tree that the problems with random duplication of individuals has been corrected. Though it’s not clear why it occurred, all sixteen pages listing people in the tree have been reviewed and the extra individuals have been deleted. If you find anyone who is “unattached” to the tree (no parents, spouse or siblings), please let me know.
Now that we have more than a thousand five hundred entries, I am allowing the tree to show in searches of Ancestry. The tree is still private, in the hope that if someone discovers they have a place on the tree they will contact me so that we may learn about their branch of the tree as well as share what we have built together. Lots of “hints” to review. Lots of documentation to be added by those who feel ambitious. I have heard no more about the results of the dig to date, but will let you know if I learn of any plans to move forward in the coming year. Here’s to a bright and productive New Year for all my cousins, however distant you may be!
