Albert Henry CRESSWELL + Annie Dora SIGGLEKOW

Journal by ngairedith

it highlights the dangers of the ridiculous practice of copying & pasting stuff found on the internet without doing a scrap of research first, when a recent short post had ANNIE SIGGELKOW as Alice GIGGLEKOW ???
that was copied just as it appears on the site, familysearch.org, about Albert Cresswell and then posted, as is, here. So not an accidental spelling mistake. Articles like these are very misleading for members who are seriously researching their ancestors. It shows no regard for them and their long and difficult search - we are here to help not hinder ...

There are researchers, and there are 'Clayton' researchers.

Clayton was the drink you had when you never had a drink.

So this means a Clayton researcher is a researcher that researches without researching, if you get my drift.

It took a bit of time to work out but it can be very easy to misspell ALICE for ANNIE.

ANNIE - drop the NN and replace it with L, now slip C between I and E and you now have ALICE. See how 'easy' it is to misspell a name.

I sometimes misspell PENHALLURIACK and PENHALLURIACH, but that's another story.

thanks for that Tonkin

- the problem is not about the spelling mistakes of course, but the admisssion that it WAS a simple spelling mistake when we all know that the keyboard is not used in copy & paste :)

The Family Search Org. Do post this warning for people researching;

Ancestral File is a collection of genealogical information taken from Pedigree Charts and Family Group Records submitted to the Family History Department since 1978.

The information has not been verified against any official records. Since the information in Ancestral File is contributed, it is the responsibility of those who use the file to verify its accuracy.

Actually ......the Alice.......it comes from NZ BDM record that states her name as ALICE Dora Sophia Sigglekow on her marriage index to Albert Cresswell. And the 'G'instead os S for Sigglekow, guess that just a typo.
