I agree that the public must be educated as to what real research and
documentation are all about. When I first subscribed to ROOTS-L about five
years ago, there were many messages asking for a "Look-up in CD #whatever".
Now such subject headings are rarely seen. Is it because people are
discovering that the data on the CDs isn't reliable? I'd like to think so!
This message came to my mailbox today via my subscription to the Bowers
List. Here's a person who knows how to document data that she puts on-line:
> I found these BOWER/Bauer entries on the following state of WASHINGTON
>-- BOWER David Bower was born February 8, 1870 in Russia, the son of
>Jacob Bower. He died November 26, 1939 at Toppenish, having lived in
>the state 23 years. He was survived by his wife, Mary. He was a member
>of the German Lutheran Church and is buried at Elmwood Cemetery.[CFH ]
> -- BAUER George, born in Russia May 4, 1870, was the son of Henry Bauer and
>Elizabeth Yost. His wife was Margaret ?. He died October 21, 1924,
>funeral arrangements by Sourwine Funeral Home (now Merritt Funeral
>Home) at Wapato. He was interred at Portland, Oregon. [MFH]
