Pierce Mothershead Family Ties

Pierce and Related Family Lines

One big problem with researching family history, it's easy to think something's true simply because it's on the Internet, in LDS records, or in a book and we end up "adopting" ancestors who aren't really ours. We assume the people publishing the information have done adequate research and verified sources, and that just isn't always the case.

Even records found with the Mormons. They do not have the resources to verify the validity of the information sent to them; they simply publish the data the researchers give them.

There's a wealth of well-meaning but misleading information available, which makes it doubly important to verify sources and not take things at face value. Ask yourself - better yet, ask the person publishing the information - how do they know it's true? Sorting out what is true, and what can't possibly work is time consuming, but can yield wonderful results!

We will be adding more information to this page as as we can. Eventually, this section will likely replace our Family Group Sheet page, since this is essentially the same data, but with even more information included. The families listed here do not necessarily have to be related! If you'd like your information included here, please email!
