Re: Verifying Sources
In Response To: Verifying Sources ()

Hello Lyle,

Amen!!!!! I share your sentiments on verifying sources.

Hopefully without sounding like an older person just griping about the mis-information that is being perpetuated by online family trees, the 'genealogy explosion' of the Internet and with the help of TV shows like Finding Your Roots and Who Do You Think You Are I feel it is a shame and dishonor to our ancestors for NOT verifying our information as we connect to other family lines.

We can all be wrong and/or mistaken in some of our genealogical efforts, but I would hope that we all have the ability in accepting the fact that a conclusion we have made along the way may be incorrect.

All the best to you Lyle and keep on vetting. :)

Art Thomas
