Bio and Links
I am in the process of trying to identify descendants of Thomas Blanchard who came to Massachusetts in 1639 and and his brother, Joseph,(I just found out that DNA tests indicate Joseph was not a brother) who also came to New England, to add information and links as appropriate. As of Dec 2014 I have been able to identify about 18,500 descendants. In this process I have come across many descendants of a Blanchard line that came originally to Rhode Island and then mixed in with Thomas's descendants throughout New England and New York.

I put everything back the way I had originally had it before the edits. The edits you sent took out place of death (and full date) for Horace, and removed Amherst as the birthplace for Carrie.

When someone sends me an edit for the first time on a profile, I like to spend a bit of time on that profile as it is of interest to someone.

No harm done of course, it just surprised me that someone would want to change a profile from a specific place and full date of death back to just the year and place unknown.

as with Carrie you sent edits removing data I had entered (that he died in Belchertown)

His death occurred in (and is recorded) in the town of Belchertown. I am an avid genealogist and if I enter data for an individual it comes from a primary source.

I was going through my edits for Carrie Cornelia Blanchard, you sent one removing the information I entered from her death record.

1) She was born in Amherst
2) She died in Springfield , 29 Aug. 1908

Was there a reason you sent those edits?

Thanks for letting me know about the duplicate; sometimes Find A Grave is slow to respond on my computer and I get impatient, so it rewards me by duplicating my input! Linda
