Burklow Orphan Lines
Orphan lines, by definition, can be any lines with ancestral OR descendancy connection problems. They will invariably lack hard evidentiary documentation such as bibles, church or probate records. In some cases, lineage can be reasonably assured by other kinds of evidence, not just an obvious spelling "relationship" with one of the five major branches. Unfortunately, those who are quick to accept data from GEDCOM generated online databases have already propagated numerous unqualified connections, and need to amend their records to include ample("??") question marks, or footnotes, to remind other researchers their data is still not documented. Because I've seen some of my "best guesses" appear as assumed fact, I'm hoping this feature will resolve some of the problems by alerting those who want to be sure their footnoted sources depict fact, and not supposition based on the assumed accuracy of proliferated GEDCOM files.
