Well, the folks in Provo seem to have been busy! Last night a flurry of updates came through. Interesting enough, different relatives appeared on my Android device than on my iPad.
On my Android, Marilyn Monroe, Walt Disney, Benjamin Franklin, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt were reported. The first three were previously shown. The difference in this run was that the MRCA for Cousin Marilyn switched from Pretitia Tydings to her husband Dutton Lane.
On the iPad side of things, Thomas Edison, Sarah Palin, Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, and Matt Damon were reported. The only common report was Matt Damon. Of the others, they had all been show in earlier reports. Thomas Edison still has the incorrect lineage mixing up my ancestor for her cousin. Cousin Helen Keller also had the MRCA flipped from Henry Botsford to his wife, Elizabeth Woolhead. Interestingly enough, President Lincoln was reported with a whole new MRCA lineage. Stay tuned for a future blog entry.
So, no change of topic, we continue to look at and review We’re Related and the clues it can provide.
