329. [ROOTS-L] Bartlett family Information [1]
I am trying to find any information I can on my grandfather's family. Thomas Redkison Bartlett was born in New Zealand around the Nelson area we think, about 1888. He immigrated to Australia around 1910-12. His father's name was Charles John Bartlett and his mother's name was Matilda Evelyn. Charles committed suicide either just before my grandfather immigrated or just after. He was a builder by trade. Any information would be gratefully accepted. --

What is this guy hiding from. I have been doing my family tree for over 6 years and I found my name on their list and when I e-mail them about it they said they had my name from a family tree, But my name was for other cousin who was 20 years older then me and I got more info on my side of the family. This was a good deal for me and it did not upset me. I had nothing to hide. If some one was checking me out all they had to do was go on the internet and pay a fee to know all about me. The goverment has our n
331. Re: [ROOTS-L] Using census as a source [1]
"Garbage in, garbage out". You are so right, and it is not just census forms. All forms were filled out by someone giving an oral history, whether it was a doctor after a birth or a family member after a death. The events were just more recent so hopefully fresher in their memories! One of my Jamestown relatives has a will that consists of two witnesses' statments as to what he declared on his deathbed.

332. Re: [ROOTS-L] copyright [1]
Micki- You seem to have quite a few misconceptions about copyright and what constitutes "publishing" a work. Publishing is merely putting your words in a fixed media of expression. If you write an email you have put your words in a fixed media of expression, for instance. You don't have to formally publish a book in order for your words to be copyrighted. Your statement about an unpublished genealogy chart "even if it's found on the Internet" proves you do understand what constitutes publis

335. [ROOTS-L] Living people [1]
I have heard several way of filling in names in FTM, Paf, and other programs. 1-living male/female with no birthdate 2-living male/female with birthdate 3-living persons name with no birthdate 4-living persons name with birthdate 5-living male/female with birthdate Which is the best? I also heard it is OK to use names and birthdates of living persons as those who are born after 1930 will automatically be deleted. Sallie TX
336. Re: [ROOTS-L] Donahue from Kent and Cassnovia MI [1]
Thank you, Vic for taking the trouble to look him up. The 1920 piece, "parents born in MI" is the first clue I've had about where they originated. I still can't find anything that hints what the Vermont piece is. Maybe it's tied to another family member that I haven't researched yet. Racine WI sounds familiar for those dates, and I believe his daughter was born there. The SSDI says that he died in Casnovia, Muskegon, MI and that's probably where he was buried in Feb 1969. I can see where his
337. Re: [ROOTS-L] To share or not [1]
Lois, your answer to whether or not to share is right with my thinking. When my cousin (#2) requested that I not publish his work with mine, he didn't specify not to share names, dates, and "public knowledge" info. That frees me to send the essentials without revealing private info. I will see how much my cousin #1 is intent on putting this in his family tree online, and will take it from there. Anyway, the info I received, and am most thrilled about. dates back to the 1700s. By sending h
338. [ROOTS-L] personal evidence [1]
I sat in the waiting room while my wife gave birth to our first child. When our second daughter was born I was in the delivery room. (The first husband that hospital had allowed to do so and staff told my wife and I not to tell anyone it had happened because "we aren't prepared to have husbands in the delivery room.") I obviously have birth certificate for both. But do I have personal evidence only for the second birth and have to rely on the documentary evidence that my eldest daughter was born on Jan 21?

I disagree regarding's OneWorldTree. Yes, it is garbled and many of the trees are completely worthless.

344. Re: [ROOTS-L] Family Trees on line - An invasion of Privacy? [1]
Vicki I'd take them off. While they really couldn't "sue you", it's really not worth the hassle. And, the "general rule" for on-line genealogy databases is "no living people" (except yourself, if you like) and, most of us use the "1930 rule" for those whose deaths may not be known. If they were born before 1930, they are on the 1930 census, and therefore "out there." BTW, all, please don't tell me there is no "general rule" -- it's like common sense, perhaps not as common as we would like! Pat (in Tucs

Joan: And I've been using these sites for almost 10 years! Can you imagine how confused new users must be? All the more reason for folks to clearly understand where they're posting their trees, where they will appear, and how they can or cannot be controlled since there are so many options. I think by far, the safest and most straightforward path is for new users to post at RootsWeb WorldConnect as both you and I have said. Thanks for the correction and clarification.

347. Re: [ROOTS-L] ROOTS Digest, Vol 3, Issue 55 [1]
You are lucky if you find a birth certificate on older people. The only reason my mother has a birth certificate is she had to get a delayed one for a passport 20 years ago as the court house burned down. A lot of states don't have them for the early 1900's. In fact there isn't even a death certificate for my grandma who died in Texas in 1953. Texas sent my all the paper work to go to court to get one, but due to the fact that I live quite far from there and I was living at that time, plus my mom and da
348. [ROOTS-L] regarding copywrite, errors, etc [1]
I think some people need to get a life, if this is what's bothering them. I have been doing family genealogy since 1979 and it was a whole lot harder then. There were no census indexes (except one year), just books and a few files, ordering microfilm and a lot of snail mail letters, and a lot of checks written. I have typed up quite a few wills and posted them on the internet so people that follow my footsteps don't have to spend all the time and money that it took me to find these things. So there are
