Dear Matthew, and Curators

I am contacting you about this profile: Jacques Des Marets, Sr.
It appears that some how this profile has been placed in the wrong generation of the tree. He is valid, just not here.
Could you please move him and his down line up the tree where he belongs? There are curators who can help you do this, if you are not sure how.

This is where I found the Jacques Im writing about, in this Davids generation some 200 years late. He is obviously in the wrong place.
If you'd like to accept collaboration, I could try to help you also build our tree. These are my multi GG parents also.

Curators help please.

Curators help please.

you WILL get a MUCH quicker response if you post your request in the Curator specific thread. Most of us do NOT check ALL of the Public Discussions, all of the time. There are at leas 50 of these each day. I would help, but know nothing of this part of the tree.

So put a comment in the following discussion:

Also have you tried contacting the manager of that profile? Private User.

Just by chance found this, I have done some work on a parallel tree, so will merge them and fix the issue.

Thank you for the direction Shmuel, I had tried to contact Mathew, but he has not been online since August. Im just trying to clean up obvious mistakes prior to a merge.

Thank you Margret, you have helped me again with your magic Geni wand.
Merry Cristmas or Seasons Greetings to you all.

Does anyone know if these Des Marets connect with the Jacques Des Maret (Desmarais) born 1630 or 1625, in France...I have come up with a dead end, but in some genealogy there seems to be a connection to these ones...but I think whomever has done it, mixed up the Jacques. Because they have connected my Jacques (married to Martha LaPorte) to the Baldwin Des Marets but there is a 300 year gap. Ie they have Baldwin Des Marets born late 1200's/early 1300's as his father...he was born early 1600's...this is impossible...

Cindy that does sound like a Mis merge. Could I trouble you to post a link to the profile?

9/2/2012 at 7:07 PM

you could, except it was not on this site. lol. It was when I was researching...the line on this site, ends at Jacques Des Marette/ Desmarais, born 1630 (or 1625)....there are no links after that, that I have been able to find.

9/9/2012 at 8:34 PM

Jean of 1450-1498 had four wives and children. Any one of them could lead to the the Baldwin. If you do find a connection it would be great to fill in the family gaps. So many were named Jacques, in so many generations, just as bad as David in the line into America.

I will definitely share, if I figure it out. Hope anyone else does as well. :)

And yeah Jacques and Francois are in abundance LOL

Micharel, I'm confused as to why you think this is misplaced. Can you enlighten? Other than pinning the brithdate as 1481 instead of abt 1480, and listing his mother as Catherine Des Marets instead of Catherine Gerardel (Des Marets), which are more conventions than errors, I don't see a probelm, so I must be missing something. THere were lots of alternating generations of Jeans and Jacques, so it does get confusing.

Back to this conversation.

I am uncomfortable linking Jacques Des Marets, Sr. up the chain past this moment.

In emailing the US Des Marets genealogical society, there is no evidence that things go past Jacques Des Marets, Sr. Please remove this link from the big, big tree.
