Very Impressive Mr. Richardson,

OK Mr. Paul C. Reed, FASG

Its your turn ! -Lets see your credentials!!!!

OR what were you saying about hypocritical calls for collegiality ?

Where did you GRADUATE from?,

with what DEGREE(S)?,

Are you an accredited or certified genealogist?,

Or, as private posts to me have been intimating, is your only
qualification that you are Neil Thompson's "friend"?

To quote you:

Since Doug already announced that he has advanced degrees in History
(didn't he say history?), and the universities where he obtained them,
why is there any difficulty in stating what those degrees in history
were and when?

I'd assume he would put that sort of information in
'Who's Who in Genealogy" or an application for the position of
editor of NGSQ without a blink.


Cheers, Uriah
