I have been working on various Miller families found across America, and some Alexander families too. These families have extremely tangled backgrounds, and they are difficult to trace. At the moment, I am out of time for any more research work. Maybe someday....
I appreciate the many kind words of encouragement and support.
YES, YOU CAN QUOTE MY WORK IF....
I get a lot of email, asking if it's okay to copy and repost biographies that I have written. It's okay to quote me for non-profit purposes, as long as you include basic info such as my pen name, the date, and the web link. That way other people will know where the material came from originally, and they can find the latest version of the entire article.
However, please note that I do not give permission for anybody to put their own copyright mark on anything which I myself have written, or to claim credit for what I wrote. If you want to write a book or an article and sell it, then I would suggest that you read the original reference materials yourself, and publish your own project using your own words.
Sample Credit Info:
This article was written under the pen name of MarthaHopscotch, and last updated on XX/XX/2018. The text can be reproduced freely for non-profit purposes, as long as credit is given to the author. See more info at FindAGrave.com memorial page XXXXXXXX.
By the way, if you want a permanent copy of anything I have written, you might want to print it out. Some of the text and photos which I posted to FindAGrave.com disappeared from the site, as of November of 2016. I have no idea what happened. I would recommend that you keep a hard copy of anything you want to keep from FindAGrave.com, since things seem to disappear.

GREAT SITES FOR EBOOKS
Archive.org has a collection of online historical books, which are past their copyright dates, and are available for free. More books are available on https://books.google.com/.
Sometimes old books which are not available online, can be borrowed with an interlibrary loan for the mere cost of their shipping fees.
