Happy Thanksgivibg to you and you family and Happy Christmas too when it
I did not think I was making a fuss and that was not my intention.
If I have ruffled some feathers then I apologise.
I agree that verification of 'data' is of extreme importance and just
because something is 'posted' somewhere does not make it authentic.

I don't see what all the fuss is about. A California lady sent me her
lineage several years ago that takes the Lovelaces back to Adam. I am not
saying this in the figurative mode but in concrete terms. It is a few
pages long and makes terribly confusing reading. I think she retrieved
this from a book. Some of the allied families have traced back to Alarius
(sp) the King of the Visigoths, the tribes that burned and sacked Rome and
was buried sitting upright in a chair in a diverted stream to keep his
enemies from having their way with the corpse. We need to publish a book
on some of the unprovable stories, sort of like a Scopes or what ever the
Internet myth killers are, to help the new folks sort out the fantastic
from the fantasy. Have a Happy Turkey Day and a Great Holiday Season.
( I would say Merry Christmas but that, too, would cause a flurry!)
