I do not want to start a big debate but, I must disagree with the lettertoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
complaining about questions asked of this group. I find that learning the
genealogy is not just about names and dates and places. It is about life
and culture. It is about the customs that people bring with them from
where they came.
I have learned many things >from the letters to this group and benefited by
questions that I have not yet thought to ask. If anything, I have been a
little disappointed to not be able to see all the answers to the questions
asked because most seem to be answered privately rather than to the group.
Also, I don't think there is anything wrong with utilizing the collective
knowledge of hundreds of people researching essentially the same subject.
Published sources are helpful but, so is the dynamic, ever growing body of
knowledge that this group represents.
