I'm a newby, and REALLY confused now because I've been making a gedcom based upon stuff retranscribed and retyped, etc over the years.
I'm descended from John Ellison Auten (the spelling by our branch after 1814 the manuscript says), b. Aug 1814 d. 19Aug1895.
He is shown in this unreliable compilation as the second son (after Jacob Cotner Auten) of Henry Auten and Sarah Gortner (m. 12 Mar 1812). Henry is said to be the first son of John Aten and Jane Mordan --or Morden --or Morgan. John is shown to be a son of Hendrick Aten and Mary Bellas. Hendrick is described as the son of Adrian Aten and Jacobje Middaugh. Adrian is said to be son of Hendrick Aten and Mary Demotte. That Hendrik to be the son of Adrian Hendrijksz Aten and Elizabeth Thomas, with whom the ascent ends.
It appears that this family compilation has collapsed some generations and got folks switched around.
Is there a chart or gedcom file I could get that would set all this right?
