  • Married to:  Blanche Isabelle Bangs

I initially received two Ancestry Hints for Henry.  I merged the two hints with Henry then received an additional hint. After merging that hint, two more hints appeared.  Strange how that works.   The five hints were for the following sources.

Henry’s Overview page after completing Hint merge:

I will next manually edit the Facts to include the information that Ancestry.com did not automatically merge. For example, the dates for Departure and Residence are missing as seen in the above image.  This can be done by viewing the scanned images for the original documents provided by Ancestry.com and transcribing the necessary data.  I will share the updated Overview page in a future post.
