I have enjoyed researching my families and love talking with others who also enjoy genealogy. You just never know what you might learn! IF YOU USE A PHOTO FROM ANY MEMORIAL THAT I HAVE CREATED, PLEASE CREDIT IT TO ME AS A SOURCE!* I don't mind if you use them, but there are far too many family trees with inaccurate records or undocumented records. Hopefully, those who are downloading and using the photos I've added are just as concerned as I am about preserving family history, about the facts and not just a list of names and photos. If you are not sure, I will be happy to try and answer any questions. Thanks!

A source, is a document, index, book, person, or other material from which you find information related to a fact or event in your family tree. Reliable sources are a critical element in family history research because they help you prove that the information you are compiling is accurate. When you run into conflicting information, it is much easier to decide which source is more reliable if you know where your information came from. Additionally, others may want to verify that the assertions you make about people in your tree are correct—they use the source information you provide to assess the validity of what you say about your ancestors. In order for others to retrace your steps to find the same information you found, you should create a source citation, the actual reference information about the source.
