View Full Version : Many people with the same name, same town

I'd like suggestions for keeping track in Reunion, until I can sort them out, of several Lydia Stanleys, all born in Beverly, MA early in the 19th century. One of them is my GG grandmother, but I haven't yet figured out which one. They are probably all related in some way.
How do others record uncertain data like this?
