Several days ago, I created this image (left) from an accurate image of careless documentation by a subscriber to Ancestry.com. I attached it to the individual hoping to encourage subscribers (readers) to double-check their records. To my chagrin, today I saw that I had a similar error in my tree.
Years ago, I earned my living as a “proofreader.” Errors have a way of “popping off the page” to me. Furthermore, I check and double-check each person before I move to siblings or parents. According to comments I attached to Phoebe Gaffield Watson, it has been five years since I last documented this family. Five years with this gross error. Shame, shame, Lorraine!!
