vkn: Update your research Virginia
alt: long time Virginia, I hope you are doing well.
vkn: Update your research Virginia we missed ya
Virginia: vkn, have met a couple of relatives of the Washington family living right here in Philadelphia. They don't know as much as I know so been trying to enlighten them,but also finding new names.
vkn: wow nice to meet local kin Virginia
Virginia: Also trying to set the record straight on my branch of the family. VKN almost emailed you. Found a bunch of erroneous trees on ancestry.com
vkn: I may not be able Virginia but I am always avaiable to try
Selma: Virginia..do you know the folks who posted the trees?
daviss: lol I found one with the name Mariah's Zepher on it as it were a relatives name Grrrrr
Selma: LOL Poor daviss.. LOL
vkn: GRRRRRRRR GRRRRRR GRRRRRRR
Virginia: Thanks VKN. These trees are by one person that I have spoken to a couple of times and even corrected him on my branch, to no avail. Still giving wrong info. Don't want to say too much on here. That's why the email vkn
daviss: I know Selma, I am really beginning to think it is sins of the father lol
alt: Virginia, erroneous as in names, dates locations ... or connections ..... or all of the above LOL
vkn: Gotcha Virginia
Virginia: alt all of the above and anything else you can think of.
alt: okay Virginia
Virginia: Not even a blood relative. Spouse.
alt: oh, those are the worst "offenders" in-laws ... LOL LOL
alt: IMHO LOL
Virginia: I wanted to start putting my tree online. Afraid.
vkn: I say DO NOT
Virginia: Thanks vkn. That was one of my questions to you.
Selma: Gotta run folks..have a great day Bye all
alt: yep Virginia, I say stay away from Ancestry/FamilySearch and those types of "public trees"..... I think a tree on a website, blog, or something you can control is diferent, but even then there can/may be problems
Virginia: Okay alt. I am using tribalpages for mine
alt: me too Virginia, good choice LOL
Virginia: Got it from you alt.
alt: oh, okay...
Virginia: Access is going to be real limited. And that's a shame because that's the purpose of putting up a tree.
HistoryBuff: Gotta run. Next time folks.
daviss: bye History
Virginia: So long History Buff
alt: yes, that is a problem Virgina... I've put all of my stuff up there on TP, but only limited information visibilty to deceased persons and living persons with a password & permission from me to view that information take care HistoryBuff
Virginia: I've got to talk to you about that alt.
alt: okay Virginia, anytime .. email is firstname.lastname@example.org
vkn: Do you allow other admins alt
alt: no vkn, just myself
Virginia: Thanks Alt. That was my next question VKN.
Virginia: So no one else can edit.
alt: and I change the access password on a regular basis. exactly Virginia
