I absolutely agree, I think other people "facts" should be used as clues for your own research. Too many times I have looked at something, checked it for myself and found it to be false, however their have been occasions when I have been lost, seen something on someone's site, checked it out and it has been correct. Just use the sites but only rely on your own research

Thanks SilverVixen.

Yes I too have been stumped and then found something on the net that has helped me find the next link.

What scares me is the listing given for the parents of Henry LUCE that are presented on the family search org. site that someone has given the LDS and this is then seen as factual.

Also, what is a worry is that usually people in England & Wales prior to the 1830s married people within their small geographical area and usually in the bride's home town. This was what first disturbed me as I look up on a map I have of Britain to see how far places were.

There are quite a few sites that have Henry Luce's parents as being from Israel Luce and Remember Munson with no hard evidence. Just because there were these people does not make them his parents. Facts must fix not because you think they should.
