What is listed in this section?
In this genealogy section you will find individual family groups. Not all surnames will be listed but the more research on each group I have, the more likely they will be listed here. This is an extensive collection that I have so I will guarantee there are duplicates and errors. I use a genealogy program and it has error correcting software, but I am still human. If you know of an error, feel free to message me using the contact page and submit your information.
Knowing Facts and Fiction.
As a genealogist we often go with "assume-ability". Yeah, crazy word right?! Well we assume tons of information that we gather is accurate until proven one way or the other. Much of a researcher's life revolves around whether or not something is Fact or Crap. Some items we can actually get a hard copy of such as birth records, census reports, wills, deeds, death certificates and many more. There is much though, that we can not necessarily depend on. Is the census report of the same Samuel and Isabella in my tree or of this other one from another state? It can get really confusing.
If I think this is my tree, can I take the information?
Sure you can. But I don't recommend it. You will want to do your own fact or crap checking and verify that these really are your ancestors. If you have done that, then by all means message me and we'll determine where you fit in the tree and get you the correct information in a format that you can work with. If it's one thing that genealogists are all about - it's about preserving and sharing the history. Please do use consideration with regards to my personal photos. These are my personal items and unless you have my permission, you may not borrow, steal or other wise use them for any reason at all including for your own files. Chances are, if you ask, you will be given permission.
