What you don't know about the above website is that it is a mirror site for mine, which is at http://www.wa4kdc.net/http://www.wa4kdc.net/ but it is not an _identical_ mirror site. She has her 'look and feel' that she's comfortable working with and I have mine. She makes changes to hers that I don't to mine and vice-a-versa.
Mine has always been the primary site but both operate on several _mutually_ agreed upon principles, one of which is that documentation and facts must go hand-in-hand when it comes to genetic genealogy, and our project is devoted to this surname's genetic aspect but does not neglect other aspects. If, when I die, she happens to decide to change those rules, that will be her choice. But I seriously doubt that will happen.
Therefore, if you find an ancestor whose genetics is identical with a group's genetic profile or just slightly different, but you do NOT have definitive documentation to prove him a close relative to another of that same group it counts for little if you claim they are father and son if you cannot prove it. Y-DNA data can and does trump a missing or incomplete documentation trail, but don't underestimate _our_ dedication to absolute and factual documentation.
Finding Robert and James in the same household on an early tax list does NOT indicate the exact, that is, EXACT nature of their relationship. Only, repeat, ONLY clearly stated documentation can do that and a tax list has never been thatclearly stated documentation. A deed that says 'my late brother's son James' is much better. But you do not have that at all. Because it's just NEVER there in a tax list!
Here's another primary principle: do not evaluate documents from another era based on your understanding of the timesyou live in. You are doing that: we demand a higher standard than you do.
Give it up, Charlie: when it comes to the bedrock of this matter, what the two of us post on our sites and what you believe do not have to agree. You can assume whatever you desire to from incomplete evidence. What we post on the web is only what we can definitively document. And Margaret and I are both stubborn: you won't ever convince us to do differently. I believe it is said that "He who pays the piper calls the tune." So if you want to call a slightly different tune, YOU go out and create AND maintain YOUR own website where you can say any damn thing you want to!
