Well you little rascal. So you posted those census records without believing yourself that there was a connection! No wonder I could not for the life of me figure out why you grouped them. Several different families, in different counties, in different decades, of different nationalities, carrying common names. Whew.

Of course the census records for John and Mary Bell in Moorhead were cohesive.

That's okay that you did that - you meant well! - and your answer is kinda cute. But seriouly it's not a good approach. It's a "set up" for your poor unpaid volunteer helpers. Instead tell what you know about your people.

I am soooo glad I threw in the towel when I did, and that you answered. Still, that's 45 minutes of my life I'll never get back. You owe me lunch! :D

Really glad the tiny addition I did make - the Findagrave memorial and the name Synneva - was actually of help.

Not related, just a volunteer, as are most people who reply to queries on Genforum.

Happy hunting.
