July 24, 2011 is on a Sunday this year I believe and not a Tuesday.
Brigham Young's profile is in much better shape than it was back in November when I started working on that area of the tree. His "about me section" is looking fine at the present time.
In the fall of 2010 Brigham Young had listed 74 spouses-- where he actually had "only" about 55 wives. After several weeks of careful merging, his profile has now been cleaned up to just 51 spouses attached to it. In other words 23 of the original 74 profiles were duplicates along with several duplicate children. But now things are much better.
...Now if I could only use the spouse re-ordering tool on more than 10 profiles without the drag and drop giving me fits:)
PS. We should hit the 3,000th profile added to the http://www.geni.com/projects/Mormon-Pioneers-1847-1868-Master-Project soon. When I ran the numbers last week I had added the 2,812th profile.
John Webster, 5th Gov. of Connecticut Colony
Governor of the Colony of Connecticut, 1656
Since we're on Connecticut history, this profile needs help. I'm starting off by searching for a better image.
Good luck Erica...
There is no portrait of Governor John Webster.
Prepared by the History and Genealogy Unit, Connecticut State Library, April 1999."
Gov. William S. Livingston, Signer, US Constitution is cleaned up and removed from the project.
Samuel Wakeman who was an "Original Proprietor of Hartford" has had his "about me" section cleaned up and is now removed from this project.
Well, it's not April anymore, but here's post #100...
I just finished and removed Ann Alice Kimball.
It's far from fully cleaned up -- it's really just his abridged Wikipedia page right now -- but I just stripped all of the copyrighted information (which seemed endless...) and inappropriate personal tributes out of General Robert E. Lee (CSA)'s profile. I figure that's a start, though I'm obviously not removing it from the project yet.
We may need to keep a close eye on that profile as we're clearning it because it clearly attracts a lot of people who want to have their say about him, and Geni's really not the forum for that. :/
Removed Bunker G. Hubbard. Unfortunately, there isn't enough information him to expand the profile much -- he's an ancestor of mine and we've been fruitlessly chasing details on him for decades -- but at least it's tidy now.
I cleaned up James Hopkins Woolsey and removed him from project.
I've removed the following:
on the grounds that having *no* "About Me" profile doesn't equal needing to be cleaned up. (In other words, almost all of these "About Me" fields are empty or have only one line.)
My guess is that these profiles were added by someone who wanted to see them expanded, so I've taken them out; that's not our project's purpose.
Opps I forgot that I already had completed George Leavitt last week.
He's done and removed now from the project:)
Orson F. Whitney, Apostle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is cleaned up and removed from the project
I have Barack Obama´s complete line back to John Lackland Plantagenet, as well as, his relationship to Mitt Romney, listed in 23 Generations, as well as, John Lackland Plantagenet. These are "non- public" documents, though... (as they are being offered for sale or some for free, if you register, but not my property to "post".)
All from BridgeAnne de Avingnion and her Grandfather´s work @ http://www.weareallrelated.com.
BridgeAnne has assured my per email, that her Grandfather´s extensive life´s work (He´s been researching the United States Presidential lineages now, for some 60 years.) is extremely accurate.
So, save a few very human... end typos (mostly just 1 letter missing or two letters, switched around.) it´s CORRECT connections.
IF anyone would like to have these, email me at Walker2021@yahoo.com
WHY!!!! ERICA! did you keep encouraging my work, and then set this up.
I am dyslexic, have to copy ad paste.
Why did you send me all those messages praising me, and encouraging me to continue, knowing others would be seeing what I have done, knowing it was wrong, and having to change it all.
I wonder sometimes where kindness is in this place, REALLY, the "game" is sickening, and I am thru with this site, I am disgusted.
