Merger of two charts

Recent information from Katrina Hodgson has meant that two of the Yorkshire charts can now be merged.

So Chart 43 which started with John Halstead born prior to 1760 will now past of Chart 45 which start with John's father Isaac. Chart 45 did include John as a baptism but I had not made the connection.

This highlights one of the differences between a one-name study and ones personal research. With the later you are simply looking for the one many and in one-name studies you are trying to merge all the entries into the one tree.

With smaller one-name studies like my own personal one that was easy as they all come from one person in the 1690's where as with the Halstead's there are in fact over 1,000 trees. many are really small and just need the spark to find the right link and many time it is information from others.
