Borrowing some well-worn expressions…

“Can of worms” and “Thick as fleas.”

I don’t want to sound disrespectful (with well-worn expressions) but I was “going in circles” with many “same name” and “cousin marriages.” It was a “can of worms” because the families are “thick as fleas.”



When I failed to find information in Ancestry, I went to FamilySearch. The sources are valuable but they led to the documentation of dozens more family members. That’s not a bad thingjust more work. There are many careless errors and I repeat an oftmentioned statement. “Just a janitor cleaning up messes.”
