I have spent the better part of today uploading biographies onto my new
"Bourbon County, Kentucky, Biographies" web page. I have completed the
Paris, Precinct. Next week, I will begin uploading the other precincts.
I strongly encourage input from you on these biographies. Most of the
biographies are from William Perrin's "History of Bourbon, Scott,
Harrison & Nicholas Counties, Kentucky" and, as many of you know,
Perrin's--while a fabulous resource--is filled with errors. These
errors include incorrect data, misspellings of first and last names,
erroneous historical references, etc. Please understand, I am NOT
putting Perrin down here; I am simply acknowleding the simple fact that
in works of this sort, errors inevitably creep in.
Now is your chance to help "fix" the errors. If you know of an error
(or errors) in biographies concerning your ancestors, please send these
corrections to my attention. I will duly notate the error and the
correction. I must insist, however, that *your* information be
correct--it doesn't help to correct an error with an error. Therefore,
when you send a correction to me, please send documentation to prove
your claim. Unless I receive such documentation, I will not post the
correction. I'm not trying to be a "bad guy" here; I only want to make
make sure we do this right.
If you have forgotten or misplaced the new web page address, it is:
Thanks in advance for your support--and HAPPY 2000!
