YOU EMAIL ME
more than one website and receive about many, many emails per day.
I would love to help each and every one of you, but I simply can't.
If you have information to contribute, please let me know as I will
be glad to post it here. You also need to be aware that although
my ancestors were from Genesee County, New York, I live in the Western
United States. I am posting everything available to me here (primarily
contributed by kind souls), but I can't do personal research.
are some examples of personal research:
"Grandpa Smith died in Lennox around 1920. He was married to
Mary Jones who was the dtr of Davy Jones and Mary's cousin was in
prison and her 2nd cousin Jane Smith was related to the King of
Clubs or maybe it was the Kingdom of Lilliput, who might have migrated
from Boston in 1741, or 1745 or maybe 1800. And his cousin Don Johnson
was the father-in-law to the former governor Ed Miller of NY at
the turn of the century. What should I do now?"
A. Sorry, but I don't know and my eyes glaze over at all that
gibberish. You should probably post your query on the Rootsweb Query
"Do you have a list of all the churches in Genesee County?"
A. Did you search the entire site? I have posted everything
I have on the site.
"Help! I'm a beginner and I need to find some information on
Grandpa Jones, who lived in New York somewhere"
A. You need to go to a beginner's site such as Rootsweb Site
for Beginners. You need to be systematic when you are working on
your family tree and you have to document everything. So start things
out right by learning the proper way to start your research. It
will save you gobs of time down the road.
"I have transcribed some old death records for Genesee County.
Would you post them on this site?"
A. You bet! And you'll receive good karma and a nice credit on
the page for your kindness.
you read all of the above and understand it, please email me at
