You say I do not know how to assemble evidence>

How do you account for the fact that DAR has recanted
50% of their mistakes (2 our of 4), If I do "Not
understand how to assemble a body of evidence"?

pray tell, how would you have improved upon this?

The Mistakes of the DAR Genealogists Addressed below
(DAR 3 Feb 2011)
”you have nothing that links Reuben (Junior) to Reuben (Senior)...”

(Bates 16 Feb. 2011)
above said In the face of 3 items that linked Reuben to Reuben.
(Bible page - Statement from Junior – DNA Confirmation (Triangulation)

In email to Wayne Witt Bates, the DAR recanted this mistake – copy available
What we have here is arrogant ineptitude, and the DAR is not big enough to admit their mistakes.

AS a Whistle Blower with some successful experience, the best way to right a wrong when dealing with a bureaucratic
organization, such as the DAR, is to go public. Don't let
them hunker-down and hide their mistakes.

In time, perhaps a new Executive Committee, they will want
to cut their loses. I get a good bit of hate mail, but
on the other hand, I get a good deal of support.
