Next year I am going to RootsTech and starting a Genealogy Do-Over, so have decided to see what gaps I have on my tree. I had a large blank tree, so added what I knew from memory and then what was missing from the data base and certificates. I have names and basic information, some more detailed than others, back to all my 2xgreat-grandparents, not to bad.
What I’m doing is finding the information, that I will be able to check, when in Salt Lake City, at RootsTech. However I have a bit of a problem with my great-grandparents and their parents. Ann Enright married Henry Nicolls on 16 July 1860, here in New South Wales and there the fun begins. Nicolls and all it’s variations, plus common Christian names are giving me more children than I know about. Ann’s death certificate has her son, Frederick as living and a female deceased. IF I take this as gospel, the female is my grandmother. The parents names are the same as on the marriage certificate, so that is a plus BUT it is the other 5 children that are causing me problems. Do I ignore them and only concern myself with the two I on the death certificate or do I continue with trying to add the others? A cousin is convinced that the children belong but I’m not so sure.
