Waste management !?

Seriously, I find myself cleaning up the mess that folks dump on Ancestry. Granted, there are so many families where the children have the same name. My most recent “mess” was two men named Amos Brubaker. “My cousin” (3rd cousin 3x removed) was confused with another Amos who belongs to the “Brewbaker” tree. ~~ Approximately twelve hours ago, I started documenting the (just arrived) obituary for a 6th cousin 1x removed. All this time on the extended family plus the creation of a chart establishing relationships.

With all the “family togetherness,” I couldn’t imagine that Amos was from an entirely different “tree.” I got out my shovel and started digging. (It’s a dirty job but somebody’s gotta do it.)
