Maybe what we need is someone who didn't contribute to the earlier thread to PM that information to Candybar.

It's a pity that online trees are sharing the wrong information

Indeed. I wish I could snap my fingers and cause all wrong information in all online and published trees to vanish forever in a puff of blue* smoke.

*or any other colour - I'm not fussy.

I'll certainly drink to that!
The supplier of on-line information is just as guilty. One popular site has a 1901 census entry for my great-grandparents in Motherwell, they were very respectable "Wee Free's" but according to A******y they were living in a sort of commune with my great-grandfather as its head, with several wives and about 20 children, all with different surnames. I have contacted the site several times over the years pointing out that the address was a small tenement building with four individual unrelated families living in 4 separate dwellings but they still wont change it.
The maddening thing is, some idiots have accepted this information and have their trees full of spurious relatives. So my granny and her siblings have about 15 other step-siblings, one of them is the famous (in Motherwell anyway) "Wee" Jimmy Hamilton. Do you remember him Sancti? He had roller skates instead of legs. He was friendly with my grandparents (they had all been at school together) but they never knew he was a relation!   ;D
