You are right, I am ashamed of the fact that I spend approximately 10 hours a day preparing information so that researchers in New York City or Billings, Montana will have a chance to locate their ancestors. Think what I could do with my family in all that time?
You say " I spent a lot of money collecting this genealogy. And you are giving it away." Would you like to guess what it cost for me to provide this information online each month? And I don't even charge for it.
1. I do agree that all information that is present should be with the approval of the person that walked the cemetery. If you will note the information says "Submitted by" I am sure that S????? is ashamed of trying to provide information to people but he didn't take the credit for transcribing and he didn't sell the information.
2. Yes, sometime I AM ASHAMED of the actions of some people, but I AM PROUD that MOST are trying to help, There is even a great deal of the time that "I TOTALLY FEEL OUT OF MY MIND'
3. FYI I am glad that you belong to the Genealogy Society and believe that if more people supported them that it would be a good cause.
4. I think that ALL should remember that Cemeteries Records are Public Records and should not be considered as OWNED by a few. Too bad, we can't work together. If you decide to submit your information, please let me know.
Thanks you for emailing Gloria
