Just maybe a lot till you figure it out.

- 377. Re: [ROOTS-L] Invasion of privacy 
- Let me echo what Joan said (and which I and Joan and others have said
repeatedly in the past):
1. There is no evidence that online genealogical information has led
to any instances of identity fraud.
2. There is no evidence that simply listing someone's name and other
public information on a website is legally actionable (I'm not a
lawyer, but if someone has information to the contrary, provide it).
3. Personally, I see nothing wrong with listing a living person's
name on a website. I recognize that ot

The RAOGK Guidelines state:
"When can I submit a different request to that same volunteer?
"After one month. If you make more than one request of any
one volunteer per month, that volunteer may request a
researcher's fee. It4s up to the volunteer to decide what to
charge for this."

- I had the same thing happen in our family. I found my ancestors listed on another family tree. When I asked where we were connected since I could not find it -- I was told WE WERE NOT RELATED!! BUT OUR FAMILY WAS SO FASCINATING . . . SHE HAD TO ADD US!
Guess if you don't want to do the work . . . or if you don't like your own ancestors, it is OK to just adopt another family.

- 382. [ROOTS-L] O'Doherty's Rebellion of 1608 - a new book 
- I have assembled three newsbooks about Sir Cahir O'Doherty's 1608 rebellion
into a book. Parts of the originals are nearly illegible so I have reset
them in type using fonts that are replicas of the 17th century originals. An
introduction explains the historical context and history of the O'Dohertys.

- 383. [ROOTS-L] How Green Was My Valley Quote 
- Each year I do a unit on genealogy with seventh graders. The very first thing I do is to read that quote to them. In so doing, I believe I give them all the rationale they will ever need as to why this is such an important undertaking. I have never heard anything better on the subject.
However, I do very much enjoy the following quote as well:

- 385. Re: [ROOTS-L] Family History 
Then you didn't submit your data to RootsWeb (you submitted it to Ancestry
World Tree or Online Family Tree) or you are talking (as Kirsten suggested)
about One World Tree and not your original family tree housed at WorldConnect.
You have complete control over a WorldConnect (RootsWeb submitted) family
tree and can update or delete it at any time.
If you are talking about One World Tree (which is a search engine and like
any other search engine must be reindexed to be kept current) it

revenues and profits! I personally recommend some of the ink refill

- 389. Re: [ROOTS-L] Re SSDI 
- Today all deaths are reported to the SSA - this is done as part of the process of alerting Federal & State agencies that the person has died and to cease issuing checks for whatever level of assistance the person may have been receiving.
Governments concluded years ago that such a centralized list would be the most effective way to get this information out to all levels of government. The cost of doing this was more than offset by the savings to government agencies by removing the deceased from their rol

- 394. Re: [ROOTS-L] [FTM] Christmas Money Part 3 
- Different first names are not all that uncommon. My mother was Sadie in the
1910 census and later preferred Selma the rest of her life, and my dad was
Ike also in 1910 and became Ernie and sometime Ernest the rest of his life
and changed his name legally. His brother went from Isadore to Irving.

- 395. Re: [ROOTS-L] LDS Family History 
- Most of the information I have I have obtained by exchanging US Mail with others, writing newspapers, using The Gealogist's Helper at it's top, and doing some searching myself. Much of that sent to LDS, Ancestry, etc, has many mistake, guesses, imagnation, and wishful thinking. I have made some mistakes which I have tried to correct. This on several of my lines.

- 398. [ROOTS-L] Ancestry.com 
- I think if everyone stopped subscribing to Ancestry.com for a year, they would have no choice but to lower their subscription prices. They have increased the subscription prices because apparently they figure everyone will still renew. I understand that every thing must eventually go up. But to take advantage of it's members, that they know are mostly seniors, is unfair.

- 400. [ROOTS-L] Stephen (Steven) Augustus WILSON 
- I am lost in my search for my maternal grandmother's brother. I
think he was Stephen but could be Steven. He was born 12 August
1875. His parents were Stephen Wilson and Augusta Young Croly. My
mother remembers that he was "involved in the movie business" in
Culver City, CA. She members him sending her pictures of movie
stars. Not much to go on but the unusual middle name may be a
help. I have looked in the SS index but he may have died before 1937.
Any help would be appreciated.
