Back in the 1980s I gave a cousin a GED file of about 600 people.
This was of my other's 2 families and my father's 4 grandparent's
families - in total 6 families.
Although she has listed my grandfather, his family is not one that interests her,
and in the last 30 years I've found more information, conflicting
information from what was available in the 1980s.
I know the information is on 2 sites, but I ma no longer interested
in correcting them. I will share listings with any relative, but
no longer GED files and my listings warn that the information
may be incorrect and should be verified if used.
A major problem other than everyone had the same given name,
many had the same family name and were born in the same year.
Saul J. of NJ and Saul J. of NY were born in the same year, one mother
was named Rose, the other had an older sister named Rose. NY Saul J
did not know his birthday so celebrated 2 dates.
I was watching Gunsmoke when Festus said something I did
not understand when I was younger, but now know what he meant.
When you start to read readin,
how do you know the fellow that
