    No, the links to his prominent ancestors were removed :(

    I think it’s interesting to have the link to famous ancestors there to click on, even if they don’t have an Ethnicelebs page, especially if they contain information that was interesting or useful when researching the genealogy.

      I moved one link to external links. The other link was to Wikipedia. Since I’ve seen people say that ethnicelebs isn’t reliable because it cites or links to Wikipedia, that’s usually my guideline.

        I don’t think linking a Wikipedia page to a well-known person is the same as citing it as a source. Since this site only includes information about genealogy in the text (or sometimes a short background description), it’s interesting to read more about an ancestor that is important or known, but not famous enough, or in the right area, to have a page of their own. It gives the site more depth.

        And I have almost never seen a page here that cites Wikipedia as a source, so I don’t understand why that’s a problem.

        Do you have any information about her mother’s side? All I know is that Ralston is a Scottish surname.
