I tend to agree with John in this. In my opinion, there is much ado
about the subject and not a lot can be done about it. My father told me
when I was a little girl (many moons ago) "Don't worry about what
everyone else is doing, if you make sure that you are doing the correct
thing then the rest will look after itself."
And odds are that it will do exactly that, so let's make sure we do the
best we can to make that come true.
Thanks for listening,

Subject: NOT NESESSARILY INCORRECT!
| Folks, who are looking for information of genealogy take notice:
| "IF YOU CANNOT PROVE IT, BY ACTUAL DOCUMENTS< IT IS NOT NECESSARILY
| The following statement is misleading, by those in Genealogy:
| "IF YOU CANNOT PROVE IT, IT IS NOT NECESSARILY CORRECT".
| My findings are that many normal people who just want to record their
| individual parents, grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, Great Uncles and
| found many of the birth and death dates, and do know where most lived
| died and whom many of their children were named. These people do not
| the efforts of obtaining written records from government agencies.
| people know who their close relatives were and ask sources for dates
| want to keep in their records or list in their Bible records. hey may
| not know all the burial locations. These are the people I term "normal
| people". It is the computer whiz and the collector of genealogy that
| PROVE IT!
| Therefore, and Thereas, these normal people are NOT NECESSARILY
| Their personal collection of genealogy should contain enough
| hand down to their individual descents, and not worry about us
| on the Internet.
| I do applaud those who do contribute and tell us about their facts of
| genealogy, and the readers can judge about how correct it is they
| Many questions on the Internet are submitted at various sites, and we
| learn and make new friends. Even on the wonderful COMBS site, the
| concept still has data NOT NECESSARILY CORRECT! Much disagreement
| exists on the "COMBS 8" among professional genealogists. Professional
| conclusions are sometimes based on LACK OF PROOF, to PROVE IT!
| Even a few records contained in Virginia library for the Internet
| contaminated and NOT NECESSARILY CORRECT! Records made by human
| often misleading unless examined and PROVE IT!
