Subject: Share your work
Date: Wed, 21 May 2003 22:24:20 EDT
I want to speak to you about sharing your genealogy with the rest of us. I
managed to help about 5 people make a positive connection to the missing
ancestors this week. This is a very rare occurrence, but it won't of happened
at all if they hadn't shared their ancestors with me.
You may be saying to yourself, but I only have 2 or 3 generations. All it
takes is one name. You might also be saying, "Well, I sent it in before and
nobody contacted me." I highly recommend that you submit whatever you have to
the mailing list about every 2 months.
New people join and leave the mailing list all the time. Even more people use
our archives. You never know when a distant cousin might be looking for just
the people that you have in your genealogy.
You old-timers might be saying, "Well, I've found my ancestors already. Why
do I need to share my hard work with others?" My argument to you is this.
Didn't others help you out whenever you were just starting out?
So please send it in to the mailing list again.
