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

Art and Arlene, thanks for the reply (support).

Honestly I don't know why. The individual has not responded to my last email. I tried my best to lay out the facts, especially the interviews from those that knew my Mary Itha.

I'm trying to understand this growing trend; just take information without properly vetting. Forcing information into a pedigree because the given name and birth year match.....I've seen some of my old material uploaded to numerous family tree's and thank goodness when I felt secure in my research I put "transcribed by Lyle Gibson; based on the inference of sources a; b; and c".

I don't mind sharing and exchanging--this helps me vet my information but if I see something that is "inaccurate", I'll address it and I would hope that someone would be willing to question my research.

As they say, "it is, what it is".
