Tuesday morning I started a small genealogy for someone so I could put more information into Find A Grave about him.When I set up his name and a wife ( I knew there were 2 as I had photos of their stones) just not which wife was first. The 6 Public trees that I looked at showed all children (8 in all ) under the one wife and never showed the 2nd wife.Turns out with a little digging and collecting of Maine birth records, Maine marriage records, Maine death records and census records, I could connect all the children (5 to wife #1) and (3 to wife #2) plus connect the first wife's parents and aunt also buried in the same lot.Interestingly enough, it took a couple hours to dig and straighten out what the family dynamic was and made me realize that some people simply copy information and NEVER go back and check the sources or in many cases even add a source.My Mom who has been doing Genealogy for almost 50 years has constantly said. Source, Source, Source, if you can find one source, okay, a 2nd source better a third source better yet.... Linda
