Joyce,, One of the things I did about 10 years ago was to try matching Clute same names with areas..or other criteria for being together. I know that this caused some pairings that are not accurate. However the Clutes and the passion for the same first names over and over makes them difficult to sort out. One of the earliest ways they actually used to determine who was who, is that theAlbany, Schenectady and Saratoga people used their DAds first name as their middle one or at least the initial.. Helps a bit, but sometimes confueses the issue.
