Darrell said in part: If you really want to keep control of information you
you have only one way to do it: don't tell anybody. Oh, and don't forget
to mis-file the original documents, and destroy all the copies, so
nobody else can make the discovery after you....
Have you noticed in your research, especially from pedigree charts and
trees and other data put on line, that many times a date is one or two days
or months or years off from other sources? Like I might see 4/1/1836 and
in another place March 1, 1836 and in another place 3/1/1837. I know that
sometimes the old year-new year thingy comes into play and is not stated as
it should be, but have often (in an evil way) suspected that there are
people who purposely put in incorrect information just to "track" their
misbehaviors at other sites and publications. What they gain from this is
beyond me. But I find myself being suspicious of all of their data then. I
tend to trust more, the old book-written histories, records, etc. and of
course even then, I find discrepancies. I guess the only thing I can do is
document why and where I use the information I choose? And I get even by
using a "-" in the source confidence element in TMG.
