Day One – Starting Over

Topic: When there are just too many errors, what’s left?
Family Name Associations: The entire database with the exception of the Agners and McDairmaids.
Location: Barrie, Ontario
Mood: Resigned. I have a headache but I’m gonna take advil 🙂
Music: Beyonce – If I were a Boy

So… When do you work to fix the errors, or give up and start over?
Last night at about 1am we decided the errors in the uploaded trees, specifically the McKenna – Hedgecoe line, are just too much to continue fixing.
Of course, this adds another week onto our projected timeline, okay, my timeline… And the concept of having to redo the Keffer or Lequyer trees is giving me a few rough moments, but really… Mark fighting with deleting 4 copies of the same person is a nightmare he doesn’t deserve. And there’s just no promise that the horror of Legacy isn’t lurking behind some corner with living people.

If we enter everything manually, at least we’ll know we’re done right. Linking the documents will then really fall to Jules and Kev… And if we have to re-add everyone it’ll take us about three weeks in total I think. But it’ll be done right!
LOL At this point that’s the only thing I can cling to and keep saying.

I’ll put in a good three days here, we’ll spend the weekend or at least Sunday in Bracebridge, and we’ll get ‘er done with good old fashioned team work. Yeehaw.
Alright… Here we go! Hang on to your hats…
