Sorry, have been quiet recently, but still working on the We’re Related project. I think I may have had a break through on someone of interest in my database, but could not figure out where he fit in. But that’s for another Blog Post. My notes and earlier findings, along with the APP has given me some information to research.
I have 107 APP Cousins in my database and I have done some analysis that I want to share so far. Looking at the Common Ancestors from the APP, I have 30 of them in my existing database. Because I was tracking which of my Grandparents the Common Ancestor was part of “that line”, it didn’t surprise me which Line I have done the most research on, what were involved with the APP cousins.
Of the 30 Common Ancestors that are in my existing database 9 of them have issues. As it turns out, all 9 were through my most researched line. Here is what the issues are:
No Direct Relationship
Spouse of the APP Cousin
This comes after the data is in my database and the evaluation of the relations is review with the program I use. The 5 issue that I have identified are problems with a relationship around the Common Ancestor. For example: A second spouse, where I come down from one spouse and the APP Cousin was from the 2nd spouse.
I have been able to identify that the APP cousin was really the spouse of the APP Cousin.
The 4 with “other issues” are ones where I need to revisit the data entry and and APP data.
In addition to the 30, I have 15 more, where I am one generation short of the Common Ancestor in my existing database. 2 more Half Cousins appear and the Spouse of another Half Cousin. 2 need a little more research.

Based on my experience with the Hints, it would appear that the data isn’t too bad. From what I have experienced with hints, the Relationships, Dates, and Places increase the number of hints. The ones that I have followed or just looked at, they appear to be good hints to follow.
Of the 45 profiles mentioned above, 30 of them are Facebook Friends. 5 of my non-Facebook Friends are among the group where the Common Ancestor is already in my database and I haven’t found any issues with yet.
Clearly having Colonial New England and Maryland ancestors have helped these numbers.
5th Cousin 1x Removed to 9th Cousin 1x Removed are in the list of 45 people.
