Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Seems that unless there is a coincidence with names AND place of birth, there is some type of connection (perhaps brothers?): I've written names and dates down given to me by relatives. There was a marriage between John Rideout born Jan.29,1833 Passe Island, NFLD to Dorcas Rideout (Hannom) born Jan. 10,1851 Harbor La Cor, NFLD. They gave birth to a son, Fred April 23, 1886 Ingonish, NS who went on to have several children, including a son named Thomas (my great-uncle - deceased.) Please see message #233 posted by my cousin, Lori Anne, who mentions that her father may have better information on whom to contact for further history.
