126. [ROOTS-L] LDS Family History [1]
I have gone into the LDS internet site and while it is a wonderful thing . I have a complaint about the various folks who submit their research.In many cases it is so far removed from accurate that the truth will never see the light of day ,many are flagrant plagerisms of others work.unfortunatly it is often repeating others bad research .It is like some of the folks submitting their data have rushed to put anything down as their family tree ,it appears they don't care if there is any accuracy .

127. [ROOTS-L] Daniel Boone's son, Israel [1]
On the CNN main page this evening, it is commenting on what famous people were Quakers. It says: American settler, hunter, and folk hero Daniel Boone was born and raised Quaker. In fact, his family emigrated to the U.S. from England partially for that reason. What's more interesting, however, is why the Boone family didn't stay within the fold. Apparently, Danny's sister Sarah made waves in the community when she married a non-Quaker. That, in itself, might not have caused a controversy. The fact tha

there is an index online already-just used it last night. http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/archives/databases.html there's military, death, marriage, coroner's, wills, probates, homicide, etc. some are not state wide, but the death index is. happy hunting Cornelia
129. [ROOTS-L] Nickname Sukey [1]
The suggestion that the names Sue or Suzanne were the origin of the Sukey does not fit the case in my family. I have a sister, Dorothy Gail, who was called "Sukey" by my father since she was a baby. I had never thought about where this nickname came from, but the suggestion someone made that it meant "dear one" or "beloved" may well have been it's origin. It certainly did not come from her given names. Dad called her this almost as much as he called her Gail. Wish he were still here to ask why Sukey.

131. Re: [ROOTS-L] GenCircles/MyHeritage Merge [1]
my experience has been the same, Peggy. the site was sent out in "beta" with some hitches and some rough edges, and the main issue I have with it other than the hitches and rough edges is the lack of response to emails. no matter what I've emailed them about, I've never got a response. I did finally find where to upload a file, but I didn't understand what they wanted so I didn't get it done. I, too, wished to upgrade my files but couldn't find where to do that. so, I will continue to upgrade to GenCir

This seems like a really good idea, so I have started doing it, but in a spreadsheet, not Word, because this is easier for me. I printed out the Master Source List from Legacy, and am discovering people I should have sourced and did not. Thanks!

134. Re: [ROOTS-L] Norweigan ancestors [1]
The reasons why Norwegians emigrated are many and varied but include free farmland under the US Homestead Act of 1862, shortage of farm land in Norway, difficulty in farming what land was there, crop failures, lack of jobs and a degrading caste system. There was a great wave of emigration from Norway during the period 1866 to 1882 but it continued to a lesser extend afterwards as well. The later immigrants were certainly influenced by letters back home from those who had arrived earlier telling of the fer

All individuals born after 1910, even if deceased should be treated as "living" and their details remove. Too many people, are listing the living with birth year, and there address. This is spoiling genealogy. Joyce Joyce

137. [ROOTS-L] Please help yourself [1]
All this discussion about copyright laws and plagiarism reminds me of a time when I was attempting to work with another researcher on one of our mutual grandfathers. I emailed her some notes and half formed thoughts to be checked out which later proved to be about half right and a lot wrong. I kept a copy of the email because I like to keep track of what was being discussed. Anyway about three months later I was browsing the web looking for some information when I came across my email to the lady, not once

140. [ROOTS-L] Crediting your sources [1]
Folks, it's just not that complicated: If you have personal knowledge of something, then, by all means, put it in your database without sourcing it other than "personal knowledge"; if you take something, anything, from somewhere or someone else, then credit the source. This practice is common sense, common courtesy and ethical behavior. If you don't know how to credit the source then invest in a copy of Elizabeth Mills' book or borrow a copy of the book from a library. By the same token, I don't think y

When I read through the entire copyright law on the internet about 3 years ago to update myself, this statement would have been considered to be in error.

I have seen the following site recommended several times and it may be one those looking to build an online tree would want to investigate. I have not used it but it looks as if it might be easy to work with. tribalpages.com Of course what many find so handy is the hints and links to other trees within Ancestry would not be there. I started my tree on Ancestry over 3 years ago and I could always access it even when I did not have a membership. Now that is not so easy to do. The one thing I would suggest

150. Re: [ROOTS-L] Invasion of Privacy; other considerations [1]
Here's another thing to consider re obits and privacy. When my grandmother died (1969) it was customary to publish the funeral and burial dates and times so that those who wanted to attend could know when these were taking place. I don't remember if the family's address was also published, but it wouldn't have been that hard to find in the phone book. My grandfather (or the funeral home) published this information, and per custom, we were picked up by limosine and taken to the funeral home, t
