Thanks Jan,
The Sherwells are in my family a few times my 2nd great grandmother was a SHERWELL who married a cousin also a SHERWELL. The family tree program is having a hard time with it. So am I, it keeps throwing up error messages telling me I have duplicate people, to make it worse that's not the only connection we have with the family. Others try to fix it.
