I do not say it's neglect; if so, more than one organization is accepting the identical source. I've used the Wilkinson book as a source for more than one society!!!! M. M. Wilkinson's book has been so well accepted, that I'm having problems, even at the local level, to get folks to accept the fact that it's nothing but one error after another. And I have included copies of my proofs, made from the original records. We're talking about a family whose progenitor in this country was in PA>VA>OH, whose son was in NC. Maybe it's just a bit difficult to concede that the necessary proofs are to be had at Franklin, St. Mary Parish, LA!!!!! Probate records in LA are an excellent resource because this state, unlike any other in the union, has forced heirship (or did!). Unless one has dealt with LA inheritance laws, they're a bit difficult to comprehend and many persons never do.
