Found Missing Info and More

In looking at my likely relative, "P.V.", managed by suepage6063, I found Agnes C Nelson in their tree, and husband and kids etc. Entering that info into family search. Hopefully this link still works for me: https://www.ancestry.ca/dna/tests/3B0F211F-8181-4C65-8034-41EB5B41BE28/match/C66199CD-ABF6-4921-BCD5-80BD0C275B45?filterBy=ALL&sortBy=RELATIONSHIP&page=1 Also started recording child "Agnes Margaret" to family search and uncovered an existing individual who's likely the same, but who name is "Agnes Margaret Agnes" or "Agnes Margaret Agnes Connacher". I started a separate research goal to confirm that: http://deadeasyfamilyhistory.org/research-goals/confirm-agnes-margaret-agnes-connacher/ Found suepage6063 attached a source for Agnes C Nelson's birth, see Added this source to my Family Search Sourcebo\x and attached to all family members Added Edith to Family Search, but also noticed suepage6063 attached a source, which mentions Edith's husband John Holdsworth Dimsdale. Her father-in-law, Joseph Cockfield Dimsdale was an MP for London https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=20805709. Added Edith's father-in-law and mother-in-law (Beatrice Eliza Bower Holdsworth) too. Also of note: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimsdale_baronets Left off recording John junior's birth and death LTB8-51W. Started adding next child, Amy Beatrice, but while suepage6063 has a bunch of sources for her, none of them indicate why suepage6063 thought Amy Beatrice was daughter of Agnes C Nelson. Also, Amy Beatrice's son should be recorded. Next up... -add children of DUncan COnnacher from https://www.ancestry.ca/family-tree/person/tree/81550566/person/42443591289/facts to https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/LY5J-FT6 -add siblings of John Connacher: https://www.ancestry.ca/family-tree/person/tree/81550566/person/42443590843/facts -Also, I just noticed that suepage6063 actually did have a ton of sources, they just weren't available from the ancestry.com page I was looking at (I needed to go to the individual's page)
