Usage Tips

Tingley should be used with extreme caution. Penny Douglass, in a footnote in a 1992 article on Robert Blott, says "Torrey's suggestion, in brackets and with a question mark, that Ralph Green's wife was born a Jeggles probably comes from Raymon Meyers Tingley's Some Ancestral Lines (Rutland, VT, 1935), pp. 164-65, which states that she was a daughter of William1 and Mary Jeggles of Salem. Tingley presents no evidence for this conclusion and his work is known to contain fraudulent data." Similar comments by other reputable genealogists are found elsewhere in the literature.--jaques1724 16:55, 18 May 2012 (EDT)

Any data reported by Tingley that cannot be supported by reference to other, more reliable sources, should be considered suspect. See William Jeggles and William Varney and Bridget Deverell for two examples of problems with Tingley's information.There are undoubtedly others. --GayelKnott 20:48, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

General Comment regarding Tingley from The American Genealogist, Vol. 74 (1999), p. 74:
"questions must be raised about Ramon Meyers Tingley's Some Ancestral Lines (1935), which is full of invented dates, sometimes for actual vital events but more often for genealogical connections that have since been disproven." --GayelKnott 15:22, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
