Discussed how to fix information and relationships for one person in Geni - see example at http://www.geneamusings.com/2015/02/fixing-online-family-trees-one-person.html
Since I have contributed a number of profiles to many online family trees over the past 15 years, I need to try to correct erroneous relationships and information that have been added by myself and other researchers over time...

+Michelle Entrop I don't think we should talk about it yet on Mondays with Myrt.  We don't know what's in the 332 pages of regulations.  It may be exactly what the proponents think.  It may open competition and entrepreneurship, it may restrict competition and entrepreneurship.  It may be restrictions on speech, "fairness" doctrine, higher taxes, licensing websites, etc.  We just don't know.

Introduction

I am a native San Diegan, a graduate of San Diego State University, a retired aerospace engineer, a genealogist and a family guy. 

Angel Linda and I love to travel to visit friends and relatives, to sightsee, to cruise or to do genealogy. Our travels have taken us all over the USA, to England and Scandinavia.
 
Did I mention that I do genealogy?  Just a bit...almost every day, every week, all year long.
