Georgge Whitney


On the original version of the page the son's name was misspelled, and it was at that time that the bot ran. The page was then corrected, and the son is now correctly listed on the George Whitney page. The issue is that name pages are not removed when no more family group pages point to them. This shouldn't happen too often, but something we'll need to keep an eye on.

John and Elinor Whitney lineage

Hi Robert,

Thank you for updating my "Whitney Line"

I knew of the ancestors you added from the WRG website, but did not want to "borrow" anything without permission. It would be great if someday we could follow this line further back, but I understand the limitations of proving a connection to another line.

Best regards,


Power Outage

It's windy here today and we just had a 10-15 min power outage, so the site was down. Seems fine now though.

Adding Wives


I think this is a good idea and one I think we may be able to do automagically, at least in part. Wives listed in the main section of a page should be between bold markers, after the word "married", and before a period. Correct? Wives of children who don't have pages of their own might be a bit more difficult.

Very interesting! As you've probably seen, I did some census research and found he had two daughters, moved to Washington, and ran a hotel. His daughters moved out when they probably married, and he and his wife (who was from Kentucky) grew old in Tacoma. Unless they were thrown out, one of the daughters probably inherited the glasses, so we'd need to determine who they married.
