Warning: If you don't understand what I am talking about after the first sentence, then don't worry, the people I am writing this to know all too well.
It is interesting to "watch" some of my IOUS ancestors on FamilySearch.org's Family Tree program. Lately, LDS Church Membership has been getting into the fray and making wholesale changes to the records. The results so far are not too promising. My Great-great-grandfather Sidney Tanner's (b. 1809, d. 1895) family was looking pretty good. For the first time in recorded history, they (all of the combined changes for the past 100 years or so) had been straightened out and he had all the right wives and children. Too bad all that didn't last very long. He is back to a profusion of duplicates and missing wives and duplicate wives. Normally, this would not be much of a problem, but he did have four wives (not all four at the same time, but some at the same time).
As I watch all these changes (not so patiently I might add) I am now getting slightly amused at the iterations. This is due to the fact that my Tanner line back to my 3rd Great Grandfather, John Tanner (b. 1778, d. 1850) is probably one of the most heavily documented family lines in existence anywhere in the world other than the royal families of Europe. I just keep wondering when they are going to get through fixing the line so I can go in and straighten it all out with the correct people, dates, places etc. Not that I am any kind of ultimate source mind you, but I have been researching my family line for a very long time and have a huge number of sources to add when they get done. Perhaps it is time to add the rest of my sources to my Great-grandfather Henry Martin Tanner?
If anyone has made it this far in this post, I was just wondering if there were any Smith, Flake, Morgan, Snow, Brown, Hamblin, Sirrine, Pomeroy, Bushman, Randall, Udall, Richards or other families who have people waiting around like I am to work on the Joseph City, Arizona folks or the Mesa, Arizona folks?
