Please, please, please ... all of you who are reading this ... contact Ancestry.com and ask them to add a merge feature to our Ancestry Family Tree site. I know I'm not alone in saying, I have so many duplicate entries all caused by inter-marrying with siblings (of opposite families), cousins, aunts and uncles, and brothers and sister marrying their siblings living loved ones.

For example, I have a huge brick wall with my GLASS line, and I'm grasping at every piece of information I can locate to bring this together. (And, yes, I am waiting for my DNA results to arrive).

My third g-grandparents are John Nall & Sarah Glass. My John had a brother, Thomas Nall, who married Sarah's sister, Nancy Glass. Get the picture?

I know this sort of thing goes on constantly with all of us at Ancestry. So let's pool our resources, which is Us, and ask Ancestry to consider this "merge" option. They are often improving the website, so it stands to reason they would consider our plea.

Thank you for listening.
