It clearly _IS_ a threat to privacy. If this were not so, why do you
suppose the Census Bureau does not release even the basic census
information for 72 years? Why would the Church of JCLDS, an organization
devoted for many years to genealogy, follow those guidelines? Why was this
standard ethics of genealogists up until the Internet?

- 3. Survey Companion needed 
- Hi Folks,
Well I've reached a phase in my cemetery surveys where I need a companion. I was at Baker-Lain last Sunday when a man approached me and I felt a little spooky. My older brother got kinda up set when I told him about it.
For anyone who might consider working with me you might want to know. During the summer I get up around 4 AM and am at the cemeteries by day break. This lets me get in a couple of hours work before it gets too hot to work. I do this a couple of days a week.
The first step i

Thought I would put my 2 cents worth in. I am one of those that will publish
info on living people. Name, parents, siblings, DOB, and birthplace.
I am of the thought that if someone wants the info it is readily available and
my web site is not going to give them anything they can't already get.... And
it is not difficult to find. I have found my address, my phone number, my
family members names. That much I simply can get from Yahoo or any other search
I have also seen my voting history! When I

One thing that you may have forgotten is cemetery
records. You really need to write or call ahead for
Cleburne Memorial Cemetery as the caretaker is not always
on site. I checked at one of the funeral homes for my
great uncle who is buried at the cemetery in the north
part of town.
The public library also had microfilm of some city
directories. I got good information about my great great
grandfather from them.

- 11. Trip to Cleburne 
- Hey all,
I am leaving next week for Cleburne from New York and was wondering
if anyone can help me out with something.
I am going to the library in Cleburne for obits, birth and death
announcements on microfilm from Newspapers, County Court House for birth,
death, and marriage records, also for land records in the basement room.
Most of my research is from 1880-1920 so hopefully the records are there.
What I would like to know is if there is anything I am leaving out? Do

- I would like to hear from anyone in Johnson County who might have some
information on the family of Peyton Parker, married to Emeline or Eveline.
They were on the 1900 census with children, Minnie L, Horace B., Dora B.,

Emeline or Eveline Parker is buried in the Cleburne Memorial Cemetery, along

- Hello all,
I am trying to locate my great grandmother, Maud Robinett-Hightower. Her
mother and father Elbert Jennings Robinett and Sousanna (Anna) Thomas are
both buried in the Venus Cemetery in Venus, Texas.
Maud died in the year of 1917, in Electra, Texas. We believe she died
approx. at the age of 30 putting her birth approx. 1887. She was married
twice, her first husband we believed was a Waggoner or Wagner but we are not
sure. Her second husband my grandfather was Edward Monroe Hightower who is

- Joyce Street
Joyce, I do really appreciate your having gone through the 1880 Johnson County
Census microfilm attempting to find David Angel and wife Nancy Elizabeth James
for me. They are known to have married there in 1878, so i really expected to
find them. Perhaps they are one of the unreadables!
If you get a chance to finish reading the county, I will certainly appreciate
your letting me know the results. You are so nice to do this work and I know

- 16. Fighting Chiggers 
- Hi Folks,
I found a new way to fight those chiggers while you're walking an old cemetery. Guess it could work if you're just taking a walk out doors too.
Wrap a cat's flea collar around the calf of the leg and there won't be any chiggers.
I've walked enough cemeteries to put this into practice and it works.
- 17. Church Records 
- I need to know what churches were in Grandview, Tex. in 1900. I don't
know which denomination my gr.grandmother was, so I would like to know which
ones were active at that time. Maybe I can go from there and find membership
rolls to check.
Thanks for your help.
- 18. Thank you all so much 
- I just wanted to say thank you to all who responded about the records in
Cleburne at the court house and library. I got a lot of great suggestions
and I really appreciate it. Thanks again.

- 22. Everett Elza/Elzy WOOD 
- Can anyone help me locate information on Everett Elza/Elzy Wood who died in Johnson County 6 Feb 1964? I am also looking for information on Ina Mae Cavender who died there 25 Feb 1976. I believe Ina to be the brother of Everett. Ina and Everett's parents were W. W. and Ellen (nee Buxton) Wood. Ellen died within a few years of Ina's birth. Her father remarried. They would have at least two half siblings named Andrew and Lora E.
Any help is welcomed.

- Hi folks,
The covers for the book on Rose Hill Cemetery were drying at 3 PM today and will be picked up tomorrow.
There has been a new development in the copyright of both Rose Hill and Cleburne Memorial Cemeteries. I have received copyright acknowledgment of two versions of both books. So now there is a choice. The two choices are The Library Edition or the Personal Edition.
The Library Edition has the latex coated cardboard cover in dark blue marble with the names Rose Hill Cemetery and Cleburne M
