Thomas F. 'Tom' Mitchell, Bee
Dear Jesse, I was hoping that you may have additional info on Tom's (mem# 12222704)mother, Mary J. Davis Mitchell. I think that she may be Elizabeth Mary Jane Grant, daughter of Frances and Thomas Grant, (she remarried A. W. Davis.) She may be the half sister of my ancestor, John Wesley Dickey, who I've been stuck on since 1984, when I began my family history project. Thank you for your time. Becky Sager Guess

Hi Jesse,

I recently sent you a couple of updates to two burials (A. J. & Nancy Key) and you transferred them to me. I am not related to them but was giving you updates to their records via the EDIT mode which is now available to let people like me update the records versus sending you notes and having you update them.

So, am transferring them back to you and all you need to in the future is to look at your EDIT(s) tab in the upper right to see what changes are being suggested, and if you accept them, they update automatically. If for some reason you don't want to update them (e.g., the sender might have an error), you can refuse the updates.
