Fam search information.
« on: Monday 04 January 21 19:43 GMT (UK) »
Hello all you Rootschatters!

Happy New Year to you.

I have been at a bit of a standstill with my Anctry family, so had a look on Fam Search.
The tree which popped up had ancestors back to the 1500's which astounded me.
I could not find an owner of said tree and wondered if it is a Fam Search tree  which has no owner to follow up?
My tree on Anctry is Williams Family Tree and I am researching the Cave line of Gillingham, Dorset.
My direct line...
Charles Cave   b.1789 Pitney, d.1850 Adelaide South Australia.
John Cave...b.1753 Compton Dundon, Somerset, d.1817 Compton Dundon, Somerset.
William Cave...b.unknown died 1779 Compton Dundon, Somerset.

William married Mary Butt in Gillingham, Dorset 1735.

His father, also William, according to Fam Search, also came from Gillingham and took on an apprentice ( Poor Law Apprenticeship Records)
Now when I entered (on Anctry) father as being William. (From Fam Search)...12 records also popped up. 
I can delete this person, but can I prove he is mine?
I am not used to this happening..

What do yo think?

Cheers,
Chris.

There are a few contributers on the Cave tree, F Search.
Mostly old updates, but, there are 2 recent ones on Thomas Cave, 1551 - 1590 if you check the vitals, one of which is 6 months old and his updated info was taken from Ancestry.
Try messaging the person who added it, you might be lucky.
I did that on FS for one of mine and it turned out to be a 4th cousin.

Thankyou Griff, will do.
At least I will attempt to do that...I'm not really good at navigating FS yet.
Cheers,

You're welcome Chris, yes, it can seem a little daunting at first but you'll get the hang of it.
Next to the updated info on the "vitals" page for Thomas Cave (1551) is the name of the contributer, highlighted in blue. If you click on that, it brings up "message" and "email" so you can contact them.

Ok, thanks again Griff.
Hope this year is good for you.

Here in South Australia we seem to be in an insulated place. The only covid cases are returning travellers already in quarantine.

Good wishes to you and yours.

Hi Chris, you're welcome and thank you.
Luckily I'm in a "safer" part of the country but of course we're on a nationwide lockdown again. The infection rate is soaring, 61,000 today, but vaccines are now being done so hopefully it will start to improve slowly in the next few weeks.
A belated happy and safe new year to you,  :D
