Not exactly sure why you responded with this message the way you did ... but it is always good to have a reminder. I always find that positive supportive messages will promote a great 'genealogy code' ... sharing bits of information, you never know who you may help.

As an addition re: censs records, the early records true will only give you head of house but it will give you a 'range' to their approximate birth year ... and it does allow you to match known children to the 'hen scratches' for household members. The problem comes in when more than one family is living together. Worst case, it will tell you the family's migration. the Pre-1850 records should never be ignored. It might also be added is that the information on ANY census is only as good as the 1) person providing the information and 2) the literacy of the enumerator and his/her ability to get ALL of the families and not skip any houses.

Actually, I do have bible records and have also traced this family since my 2004 message.

Since my WELLS/WELLES are from CT, VT, NH, NY and OH ... one never knows who may be researching a leg of the family and have some 'family' information that will tie all the information together.
