As I see it…

This old lady’s vision is poor but “as I see it,” the image of “Myrtle Blickenstaff” does not match the images of Martha “Mattie” Burgard Blickenstaff. In Ancestry’s  “comments,” I verbalized that skepticism a couple of days ago (when I published the earlier blog message). I strive for an Ancestry database that is 200% accurate. The “long story” made short: Remove her…

Why the confusion? The “kind, considerate man” who sent the pictures read the name as “Mattie Blickenstaff.” When I found the name (after viewing the folder in both lamplight and sunlight, with a magnifying glass), I saw “Myrtle Blickenstaff.”
