In Response To: 1880 Census on familysearch.org is a GIFT! ()
I stand corrected!!!! I sincerely appreciate the feedback that I'm receiving from my message! Thank you!! I simply stated an honest opinion and response to what I discovered and the changes (to that particular search tool) that occurred in a very short period of time. Indeed, the information provided on the LDS website is extremely valuable and with their addition of the online 1880 Census was a blessing to genealogical research. however, I do have a right to critize any change to data representation and any altering of that information that was presented in its original format. You are absolutely right that family history REQUIRES "LEG WORK". I have done it in my own research and are continuing to do so... However, as someone who works full-time, one appreciates the online information to be as accurate as was when presented in its original form. As far as the mean-spirited comment goes, I believe that I presented what I found online and addressed my concerns in the form of a question. But, I believe to question everything, especially when it comes to information that is presented online and can be easily altered....
