- 401. Re: [ROOTS-L] Crediting your sources 
That wouldn't be "personal knowledge" though. Your source in a case like
that would be that your father told you he was 45 when you were born, or that
your birth record lists your father's age as 45.
You also know that your brother was 2 when you were born because someone
else (your parents most likely) told you that--so THAT is your source--not
There is a difference.

This is specifically stated in their policies, though one has to look
carefully to find them:

saying, and it makes sense the way you put it so clearly. Somehow, I
read that exactly backward, and read it as the need to invest
significant effort rather than that NOT being a requirement. But then,
I read it at midnight and was tired.
I still have a problem accepting that inaccurate information can be
considered a fact by definition, though I can see where it could be
considered to be such until more accurate information

- James L. Sorenson, a pioneer in DNA research has died. A self-made
billionaire, he used his wealth in many causes.

- 415. [ROOTS-L] Spanish Surmanes & Argentina Census 
- You are correct. It is standard practice in all Spanish-speaking countries for a woman to keep her father's surname and when she is married to add her husband's surname preceded with "de." Thus, Sanchez is her maiden name (father's surname) and Botteron is her husband's surname. Any children of Juana Sanchez de Botteron would have Botteron as their first surname and may also use her maiden name as their second surname. Thus, if Juana had a son named Arturo, he would list his full name as Arturo Botteron San

- Not in mine either. If I had to generalize it would be something like this:
First son: named for some relative.
Second son: named for some prominent person.
Third son: named for a character in a book.
Fourth son: named for the milkman.
Two of my fairly recent ancestors were the ninth sons in their
families. The parents obviously had to look long and hard for names.
