- 501. Re: [ROOTS-L] Genealogy program to create web pages 
- I use GED2HTML. It takes whatever you put into a GEDCOM
file, and creates web pages for you. Those web pages can go onto
a CD (for easy sharing with relatives), or onto the internet.
Your present Genealogy program can create the GEDCOM file,
and you can control what goes into it. i.e. ancestors only,
all ancestors and all descendants of all ancestors, etc. It is
very versatile, but it will take a little studying of the documentation.
But you can include photos, links to other web pages, different

- 504. Re: [ROOTS-L] SSDI -- who is included? 
Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason as to who does and who doesn't appear
in the SSDI -- but it is based upon reports of death to the SSA. It is
possible that your mother never worked under SS herself and might not have even
had her own SS number/card. Perhaps she only received benefits on her
husband's account--in which case there could have been more of a reason for SSA not
bothering to place her name on the SSDI or it could simply have been an

- I finally have to put in my "two cents worth" about Ancestry. Like many, I
am well into the senior citizen category and on a limited income.
Having done genealogy for over 30 years, I also go back to the days of mail
queries to town clerks, finding a place where I could access census info (and
having a heck of a time figuring out how to use the darn microfilm reader) and
even paying people to access certain deeds or probates for me. And, then the
wait for replies...and the cost involved to acquire

My address growing up was 145 West 169th Street but I can't recall any

- 510. [ROOTS-L] Ancestry 
- The bottom line is they are out to make money from people who are
looking for family. I am sure plenty of people have given them information they
didn't get by themselves and they didn't pay for. The price won't go down.
If I needed it I would look to share a subscription with a few
people. After all if you buy it for a year do you use it 365 days
I still think that ancestory basically takes
information that belongs
everyone .Then they monopolize it and cha

- I have an ancestor, Charles McGregor, who supposedly had a warrant issued for his arrest by the Crown about the time of the Battle of Culloden in 1746. He was a resident of Glasgow, Scotland, and fled to NC where he took the last name of a cousin, Bannerman. Anyone know how I can find out about this warrant? Thanks.

documentation for everyone. Very few people in your line are going to have
legal documentation for such as birth certificates ,wills ,death
certificates ,or census .If you don't have proof beyond a reasonable doubt
.then I feel you should add a note to that person,noting that this is a
work in progress ,and not a definate finding . Then folks should see this
and realize it is not proven , and work towards also proving it and not

than men, would go by their middle names, instead of their first
names. My mother, grandmothers, aunts, friend's of the family they
would go by their middle names. It was not until I was years older I
discovered what their first names were. It apparently was some kind

The Roman world was in upheaval when the "barbarians" invaded Rome and there
were not enough troops to man the outposts, such as England.
In the 5th century there was a Roman general who went to Spain to recruit
soldiers to fight the invaders. This should be in the section that listed the
Welsh ancestors that included Madog, the explorer who may have been to the
new world in the 13th century.

Wrong. I submitted my tree to rootsweb which gave it to ancestry. I
deleted it from rootsweb but can't delete it from ancestry. That means I DO NOT

- Regardless of it being correct or incorrect to post a living persons name, a
lawsuit can be very costly to defend your self and if you lose you may have
to reimburse the other side for attorney's fees and other cost. And yes,
there are always unscrupulous attorney's out there that will take ANY case,
so long as you are paying them.
I know because I went through someone suing me for something so stupid and
it cost me over $12,000 to defend myself, plus lost time from work and it

- 521. Re: [ROOTS-L] Ancestry and help 
- Hello, I haven't had any trouble with anyone saying the images have been illegible and I have been sending them for years. As for Ancestry.com having ads on the images that you send, I would expect nothing less. They are a business trying to get patrons. That is just good business sense. And whether people want to accept it or not, genealogy is BIG business.
I have been a subscriber to Ancestry.com for years. While I don't like the rising prices any better than the next person, I also know that I co
