  • Discrepancy between two "gronofamily" pages. The "freepages" said "© Grono Family Association 2006-2010" but "This site was last updated

29/05/2009..." (though other pages show different dates, which presumably indicates that the wording should be "page" instead of "site"). The AWT was "Updated: 2010-03-01". They should be in agreement on family details despite a few months of difference in updating, unless the family is still discovering new conflicting information. The glaring discrepancy is with the children. See Talk:Grono Family Reunion for details and resolution.
