Here is a query I received a while back. I forgot to forward it... Can
anyone help this lady? If so, please cc her on the email or send your
response to her directly.
Mary, I am trying to find out some information about my great-grandparents.
No one seems to know anything about either one of them. I believe alot of
my great-grandmother's family are still in oblong. I believe both of my
great-grandparents are buried there. I think I found them on the state
death index. I just wonder if you can be of any help. Their names are John
Price and Effie Hawkins Price. I'm not sure how to spell her maiden name.
My dad thought Effie's family ran some banks or had something to do with
oil fields in Oblong. I'm just kind of at a stand still. IF you can be of
any help, I would appreciate it. The John Price I found on the death index
died in Oblong Twp, Crawford County. Effie died in Iroquois County and that
is where she resided and that is also where her son lives today and where I
live. John Price died Dec. 22, 1934. I believe Effie is buried in Oblong.
Anyway, my email address is yoyoyojen(a)mwisp.net. My name is Jennifer
Schunke. Thank you so much for any help you can give me.

You all might want to check out this bill. It apparently has rather large
ramifications for all types of data (read that as genealogical data). The
way most people understand it is that once some data was published by
someone, it would then be considered "copyrighted" by them, and would not
be able to be redistributed. If you do a Google search (which, BTW, might
also be affected by this type of a bill) on the name of the bill (HR 3261
or HR3261), there is more information out there. Does anyone know more
about this than me, and am I worrying for nothing? If not, we might want to
contact our representatives on this one.

Welcome to the ILLAWREN mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
