Get Your Facts Straight

Speaking to mom cleared up some things. It turns out there are two Dora Griffins. One is his wife, whom is simply Dora Mae. While the other is his daughter, Dora Mae Griffin. I was using the latter as his wife on Ancestry.com. Suffices to say I didn't get very far. I kept the earlier date of birth of course (Circa 1902 for both Dora Griffin and Benjamin Franklin Griffin)...But the rest of the facts for each respective Dora Griffin were a mess. But i've fixed it.

Moral of the story is: Get your facts straight.

Thanks mom.

  2. Greetings and welcome to AAGSAR! The moral of your story is so true -- get your facts straight. Those same names we find for fathers and sons & mothers and daughter in our research process can be quite troublesome at times -- LOL! But the best part, or important part, is that you are now back on the right track with both Dora Maes in your tree!

    Wishing you continued success with your family history in the New Year!
