I am relatively new to researching but have populated my tree and find working with census reports fine. My question is on birth, death & marriage certificates. When I get to an index of the person I am tracing and get the reference. How do I know without buying the actual certificate that its the correct person?
To give an example. I have a great aunt who seems to have died pretty young between 1901 -1911 as she is declared dead on the 1911 census. I also believe (but not certain) that she married a man between these dates (gleaned from another myheritage tree). I have progressed to a marriage index but not certain its them? This is probably going to be true for other research results, getting to an index but not certain before spending money on certificates to discover its not my relative?
I want to find out when this aunt died, was she married, any kids and what she died of. Am I approaching it the correct way or totally up the wrong thought process?
Most Kilcrease Trees show William Edward Gilcrist born in 1835. According to "The Red Hill of Florida "by Clifton Paisley and Jans VIew of the world "History in a Letter" he was 50 years old when he married Rhodain (age 19) in 1853. This William Edward is born circa 1803 settling in Gadsen 1848. He was referred to as General William Edward Gilchrist, but that does not appear to be true according to "My Autobiography by Charles Hentz". I do not know who is buried in the Western Cementery in Gasden, Quincy, Florida with a tombstone that reads General William Edward Gilchrist, botn 1835 died 1860.
I'm just curious, as I found a census record match for my great, great grandfather but the name was incorrect. His name was Daniel, but on the image of the census record, it's smudged and written partly over with David. Every other record has him listed as Daniel Skode, from immigration to marraige, death, children, etc. How do I notify the powers that be that this record is incorrect?

I received my DNA recently. When it says Middleastern 8.5 % , would that also mean Jewish, as I have 6.4 % Ashkanazi in my DNA. I understand there are other peoples in the middleast, therefore might be difficult to know, I would really love to know which group.
Received a Super Search Alert originally posted as my search in May and June of this year. The alert notified me: " Oops, we no longer have the info you requested " ( or similar ).What a waste of my time (and your "researcher") as all I needed was to contact the webmaster of the Geni site. My g-grandmothers surname is misspelled by ONE letter and am simplytrying to have it corrected. There are other sites on MH with the correct surname who would like to see their ancestor correctly acknowledged.
Through DNA, I recently found a previously unknown aunt and cousins (she is my father's full sister). I also uploaded my daughter's DNA from Ancestry. My Heritage shows my daughter's DNA connection to my aunt and to my aunt's granddaughter. My DNA shows a connection (24.6%) to my aunt but none to my aunt's granddaughter! How can that be?
Searching for any information about John and Dorthy Watetstradt that lived in danville illinois in vermillion county starting around 1868.
I have discovered a lot about their children but have never figured out any siblings, or parents. John waterstradt b.
1840 and d.1907. Dorthy(born huckstadt) b.1846 and d.1931.
They were both born in germany and their first child Lena(prast)waterstradt was born in germany around 1863 and in morgansdorf. I have been interested and I hope there are people around that know these facts. I have always wondered what my great grandparents may have looked like.

My grandfather, Edward DAMS left Prussia/Poland about 1904 and emigrated to Canada. We have been told he did not want to "run the family hotel." In Canada he married Marguerite Decker b. 1879 from Mondorf-Les-Bains, Luxembourg.
According to Edward's birth certificate and baptismal record (translated from Russian) he was born in Wielki Piatek, Stawiszyn, Poland on April 5, 1881 to the parents of Ferdinand Dams and Henrietta Kubisch.
We have a hand written note (about 1911 or later) by Ferdinand Dams b. 1843 (Edward's father) with a return address Sorau N/L, Lugeberge, Deutschland (present day Zary, Lubuskie, Poland) written to Canadian family members. I don't know if Sorau was a permanent address after Wielki Piatek. I don't know where Ferdinand Dams died.
I was told in 1994 by Edward's daugher, that the family hotel was located in Langendorf but was now called Langen.
My family line is: Hotel owner, great grandfather, Ferdinand Dams (b. 1843), then my grandfather, Edward Dams (b. 1881), then my father, Ferdinand Edward Dams (b. 1907) then to me, Doris Peters.
If anyone has information about the DAMS' Family Hotel and would like to share it, please contact me, Doris Dams Peters, at email@example.com. I thank you for any information you may be able to provide.
I have an important family video that has ended up on Google photos. I would now like to add it to an individual on My Heritage but does anyone know how to accomplish this? I usually save these files to desktop and do it from there, but these don't seem to work in that fashion..?

I wish i read the replies messages first before i order the DNA Kit, one of the bottles does not contain the liquid. I tried to communicate with them by phone but there is always a long waiting list. I wrote them an email and I have not received a response yet ..
And Now i found that the results are inaccurate !!!!!!!!!
