Genealogist and Researcher
I am no longer the ACC for the above counties, I was removed without any
notice or warning or reason other than, because the CC said so. I was
in the process of adding a contributors obituary records to the site and
could not complete the task because the password necessary had been
changed and that is how I found out that she decided to remove me.
The only explanation that I was given was that she did not need the
records that I was contributing (Obituaries), however, I had much other
information on these sites including:
Revolutionary War Pension Records
2000-2002 Death Index Records
Family Group Sheets
Many Many Photographs
As well as over 3,500 Obituaries that I have personally transcribed for
The good news is, I will let you all know where I will be posting all of
my new records shortly at a new URL..............
If anyone needs any help or has any questions, please feel free to email
me. As always, I am available for lookups, I don't live in Kentucky,
but I have access to many sources.
Welcome to the KYOWEN 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 email@example.com
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.

2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
