Yesterday I was checking my tree on FamilySearch to see which children of direct ancestors still needed to be added. I was stopped with the first family. I found that four of Fred and Elvira (Bartley) Gerner's 16 children were missing -- all sons. Alfonzo and his twin Alonzo, their oldest children, were missing. I added Alfonzo and then noticed a problem with the wife's information which didn't match the information I have. It's created enough uncertainty that I need to search deeper to see if I can sort out the wife problem.
Sometimes records leave such unlikely messes: names confused, mis-recorded, not recorded, typos or print errors, etc. Of course the individuals may have left messes, too. I hope records can help me sort out Alfonzo's wives (but this record adds to the confusion rather than clarifying).
Thanks if you can read Alfonzo's wife's name and leave a comment.
