Hi - I removed a lot of information recently and I wanted to put a note here in case anyone thinks there's been a vandalism. There was a lot of information that did not pertain directly to Marvolo Gaunt and it was removed.Mafalda Hopkirk 22:44, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Antecedent vs. Ancestor
Hello. I have a question. What's the difference between antecedent and ancestor was? Aren't they just synonym of each other? The reason why I asked is because JKR recently used antecedent to describe Corvinus Gaunt to Tom Marvolo Riddle. On here, it reflects that and it list Corvinus as such. She usually use the term ancestor in the series. If the two words have the same meaning, won't it be consistent if we just keep one term, be it ancestor or antecedent, instead of using both? I understand we are trying to reflect what JKR said, but just to avoid confusion and have consistency. Seasrmar (talk) 18:56, November 5, 2012 (UTC)
