This is very true--but on the other hand, if someone lists a source as
"personal knowledge" for an event that occurred in 1800 at least the person
reading it would have a clue that the source might not be one they can trust.
I have personal knowledge of when and where I was married, who my husband
and children are, and when and where the children were born. I have
personal knowledge of where and when my father and mother, and grandparents,

If there is a problem getting help at RAOGK one can try to find a volunteer by going to the appropriate GENWEB site. Often there are volunteers listed there.

think Ancestry is the DEVIL and that they somehow are being controlled
by the demons of Ancestry. LOL -- no one makes them use Ancestry,
Rootsweb or any other part the TGN network, but they seem to think
everything should be free, search engines don't exist outside of
GOOGLE, and that their data is theirs alone. Geeze this topic has gone
on for days and days. Maybe the pre-screeners can give us a break and
just allow posts that are actua

I still think that ancestory basically takes information that belongs to

it .Now you can call it what ever you like but that is what they do in a

- I find items, not being document, in family tree's, on line. A lot of
people, are using undocumented information.
An invasion of privacy, is so wrong. I have found people, putting living
people's name, with birth year on line. Also finding people using social
security numbers, with family members, that has pass away. There is
still love one's, that are still using those social society numbers.
I wonder, how many people knows, how genealogy got started!
Genealogy use to be fun doing, not anymore.
