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

vkn: I may not be able Virginia but I am always avaiable to try

Selma: 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


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

Selma: LOL

vkn: 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

vkn: agreed

alt: me too Virginia, good choice LOL

Virginia: Got it from you alt.

vkn: sweet

alt: oh, okay...
