I have been so happy working on genealogy for over 35 years now, and love helping people and helping myself or others get their families connected.
I do not consider this a "numbers" game... these people that have passed were here among many of us, or in my or your family... and this place is the best for getting folks connected. I do not agree with the guidelines of parent, grand, whatever... if anyone I have listed were in your family, and in no way connected in my family, just ask for the person... no matter if your 15th cousin.!!
I do not sit and copy cemetery names from books... I go and try and take pictures, hunt down obits as much as I can, or copy tombstone information, and then enter that person. I do NOT just put in a name to have a higher count. Why any of you want to keep names that is not your family, is beyond me.
I just hope all of you continue to add folks to YOUR families, as we are doing this now, we won't be here forever... but many in our down-lines "may' continue.
Much Thanks to many of you that "have" found a relation of mine, and transferred that person to me! You do NOT have to ask permission to use anything on any of my memorials.
