Why Copyright Is Important to Me
In a recent posting to his blog, James Tanner writes: "I am talking
about all the other stuff, blog posts, notes on family trees,
biographies, surname books etc. that have absolutely no expectation of
making a dime for their authors. What then is the ben...

Martin - personal trees and unified trees
So far, my family tree experiment has not garnered any responses from cousins on my Smith line, so I'm continuing with my Martin line: My mother, Altha Corinne Martin (she's listed as Alta Corene Martin on her birth certificate), was born in Moon Township (...

Find A Grave - an experiment to transfer memorials
On Facebook (in some genealogy group) there was a thread that discussed experiences in having Find A Grave memorials transferred.  I decided to test this myself today by going to all of my parents', grandparents', and great-grandparents' memorials and reque...

Hopefully you have a Find-a-Grave account and hopefully you included your relationship to the deceased in your requests. I've read stories in the forum in which non-members have gotten very upset that a memorial couldn't be transferred (to a non-existent account).

Smith - Unified Trees
It's time to look at the options for unified trees.  I'll save the RootsMagic/FamilySearch sync for last. First, Geni.com.  I entered my Smiths, and when I got to great-great-grandfather James Smith, I was told that there were 40 possible matches.  I then e...

Expertise is Neither Dead nor Sequestered
In a very recent posting on his own blog , James Tanner wrote a response to a posting by Michael J. Leclerc, who himself was following up on an article in The Federalist by Tom Nichols.  (Are you with me so far?)  In a nutshell, Nichols was lamenting that t...

B.G., I not only have a Find A Grave account (I was logged in and used the "Other" option to make the request), but I also indicated in each request exactly how I was related to the deceased.

Smith - Some concluding thoughts
1.  I like putting folks up on MyHeritage (and synced with Family Tree Builder), but I've no luck yet with matching anyone else with Smart Matches on my Smith line.  I may find that some of my other lines will have better luck in that area. 2.  I have a num...

Smith - Personal Trees
It seems appropriate to begin the experiment with my Smith line, since here we are the day before St. Patrick's Day, and my immigrant Smith ancestor was from Ireland.  I've previously written about these Smiths just last August. So we begin with the persona...
