@Mary Winslow (Chilton) is one of about 30 Mayflower passengers in my family tree. I am trying to eliminate the many, many duplicates that have occurred with merges. There are as many as 20 entries for the same person. I spent several hours eliminating the duplicates for Mary and her husband John Winslow as a starting point. Please help me make this historical tree accurate. Thanks for any help.
I'm rather new to posting so thanks for the info. The Mayflower passengers are well documented through the Mayflower Society and various other sources online. There are other organizations such as the John Howland Society, one of my grandkids' ancestors through their other grandmother. The trees on Ancestry.com seem to follow the official documents fairly well. Thanks for any help.
I'm putting the URL's here for my own reference, if you don't mind.
This profile looks like the main one:
I sent you a request to "collaborate." If I get confused I'll leave it alone and post back on this thread for more assistance. Sound like a plan?
For anyone researching Mayflower passengers,a good website is www.mayflowerfamilies.com.
Richard Warren (Mayflower Pilgrim) is your fifth cousin.
Governor William Bradford III is your 6th cousin.
John Winslow, Sr is your 6th cousin.
So apparently I have a dog in this race. Who knew. Thank you, Geni.
Pointer to a parentage clarification discussion here:
Edward Winslow Sr. and Jr. Wives
I see some progress in the Mayflower tree, but there is stil incorrect information about the wives of the two Edward Winslows.
1.Edward WInslow Sr. (Not on the Mayflower( was married to Magdalene Ollyver. Three of their sons were Edward (Jr), John and Gilbert.
2, Edward (Jr.) (Mayflower passenger) was married to (1st) Elizabeth Barker (Mayflower passenger) who died in 1621. He married (2nd) Susanna White (Mayflower passenger) whose husband William White was a Mayflower passenger who died 1620.
B. Gilbert (Mayflower passenger) later returned to England and died there.
C. John Winslow (Fortune passenger) married Mary Chilton (Mayflower passenger).
Anyone who knows how to make these corrections, thank you!
Robert, please provide links to the profiles you are discussing. It can be especially confusing when they have similar names. just type the @ symbol and a name and then check if the name pops up at the bottom of the box you are typing in. If that doesn't work, just copy and paste the number of the profile. Makes it a lot faster to fix errors.
@Edward Winslow Sr.
@Gov. Edward Winslow (Mayflower)
@Susanna White-Winslow (Mayflower)
@William White (Mayflower)
@Elizabeth Barker (Mayflower)
@John Winslow Sr. (Fortune)
@Mary Winslow (Chilton)
These are the Mayflower passengers and related family that I mentioned in the previous posts. I'm still learning how to post so sorry for the confusion. I accidentally posted from my husband Robert Arnold's webpage. I didn't get any pop-ups when I added the names above. Mary Arnold
The @ thing doesn't always work for me either. I just grab the URL.
I think these are the "main" profiles for the pilgrims mentioned:
Magdalene Winslow (Olyver)
Gov. Edward Winslow, "Mayflower" Passenger
Susanna Winslow, "Mayflower" Passenger
William White, "Mayflower" Passenger
Elizabeth Winslow, "Mayflower" Passenger
John Winslow, Sr.
Mary Winslow (Chilton), "Mayflower" Passenger
Gilbert Winslow, "Mayflower" Passenger
It's good to get them on one list like this. We can more easily see differences in naming conventions and work to bring them more into alignment. We can also see who "owns" the profile (listed as "Managed by"). Some of them I collaborate with, some I don't, so I will work first on trying for collaboration rights. I do that by requesting merges.
I just copy and paste from the address bar. I'm very fast at it. :)
Do you export out your tree on a GEDCOM file and save it to your computer? Geni.com makes it very easy to do. That way I feel comfortable that my "real" genealogy work maintains integrity.
Once I hit "the cloud" I figured I might as well give back what it gave me.
I'm getting some decent response on the merge requests; too soon to tell, really. It's holiday season. I've been doing some unraveling and re-merging back down the line while I wait for the merge requests to come through. Don't look. It may get uglier before it gets prettier.
There's another fellow who's been working away on another corner of the Mayflower tree. I imagine he'll pop by.
And I want to keep this discussion visible so more people join in if they are able.
This profile looks more or less correct: Hannah Bosworth. Is there another I'm not seeing?
Hannah Howland, the daughter of Mayflower passengers John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley, had husbands Jonathan Bosworth(correct) and John Tinkham (wrong) on the tree. John Tinkham was the husband of another Hannah, her granddaughter. Perhaps someone removed John Tinkham from the wrong Hannah. Thanks.
Anyone have info on this person? Is she a Snow or is she a Paine? Thomas Paine has a daughter by this name. Couldn't find much info to give me clarity of what to do with her.
I found a great reference for intermarriages between Mayflower descendents that contains lots of good info. It's www.mayflowerfamilies.com/mayflower/mayflower_intermarriages.htm. This should help clear up some of the confusion.
