~ My Grandad was X Mutch who came from Aberdeen. Are we related?
~ What do you mean by 'open source genealogy project'?
~ Why are my family missing? What are the limits for inclusion in the database?
~ Why are these funny [G1] codes all over the place?
Having 113 John Mutches & 102 James Mutches can make referencing which one we are talking about difficult and lead to errors. I therefor started coding each Family Line entered with the first letter of the first name plus a sequential number. If your John doesn't have a code then he is either, out with the limits for inclusion (see relevant FAQ) or, details are not known yet.
It also makes my life easier if you refer to the relevant code in any correspondence.
