Is it Scotland or England The earliest Musgraves lived on the English-Scottish border. According to Wikpedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westmorland & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumberland), Westmorland was a part of Scotland until 1092, when conquered by William II. It had been historically associated with the Kingdom of Strathclyde. Briefly, it returned to Scottish control from 1135-1157 when, upon the death of Henry I, King David I of Scotland reclaimed several border counties.In 1157 Henry II of England resumed possession of the area from Malcolm IV of Scotland, and formed two new counties from the former earldom: Westmorland and "Carliol". To get the correct country, there are just a few dates to remember -- Before 1092 - Scotland 1135-1157 - Scotland Anything else ancient- England Modern times - Great Britain or United Kingdom
It makes it easier to read a profile if the "about me" information is filled out in this fashion:
- (vitals, summary)
- example profile: Stephen Hopkins, "Mayflower" Passenger
- Future releases of the Geni Project module will create a dynamic library of downloadable media for profiles associated with the Project.
-- The media tab of the MP should be used for documentation files. Websites, biographies, census reports, image files -- the richer we make the profile, the more historically and genealogically accurate and meaningful it will be.
-- Adding a source validates the MP, and creates a "timeline" for each life represented by a profile. The more information we add, the more detailed and accurate.
-- Original source data includes: birth certificates, census reports, immigration records, ship rosters, obituaries, marriage licenses ....

- Citation data (MLA format is good) should be noted for each source. If someone else can't replicate research, it's not acceptable.
