Sad really because in the future, another ancestor of my g.grandfather may be looking for answers as to their origins and find all these trees.

I really don't think that is likely to happen. ;D

I have found that adding 'Comments' to a person's profile can help, especially where there is dispute/confusion, and also sometimes by adding a couple of asterisks before or after a particular person's name...which will then lead anyone to read the comments.

Hi lydiaann, yes adding the asterisks can help. For example Betty "Roberts" Winterbottom.

But why would it be necessary to put 'base born' in her profile name.

In the case of Betty Winterbottom (1753 - 1773) there is no confusion or dispute regarding her parentage.

She was baptised in 1753 'Betty Daughter of Lucy Roberts, Spinster & Henry Winterbottom, Clothier'. She wasn't recorded as the reputed daughter of Henry, which would indicate she was accepted as Henry Winterbotttom's daughter.

The register did not say she was 'base born' or allude to anything of that nature.

Her parents married in 1758 'Henry Winterbottom, Clothier of Thorns and Lucy Roberts, Spinster of Saddleworth'.

And she was buried in 1773 'Betty Daughter of Henry Winterbottom, Clothier, and his Wife Lucy of Round Hill'.

In between her parent's marriage and her burial, 5 of her siblings were born at Round Hill, all entered in the baptism registers as Son/Daughter of 'Henry Winterbottom, Clothier, and his Wife Lucy of Round Hill'.

If Betty's identity needed further clarification, wouldn't it be more useful to add a 'Marriage of Parents' Fact/Event to Betty's profile and enter the date and place where her parents were married. You can even attach their marriage register to her profile, but this does take a little tinkering around.
