We’ve got watchdogs among the genea-bloggers. Sometimes Ol’ Myrt gets it – like the previous posting about MyFamily, where the reviewer was simply unaware of default settings and some customary practices. But, even I (the great Myrt?) sometimes miss the boat. See:
- Randy Seaver’s Ancestry & MyLife Public Records Index
- Randy Seaver’s More on Ancestry.com and MyLife.com
- Dick Eastman’s Ancestry.com Adds Huge New Content Addition for More Recent Years (Scroll down to readers’ comments, to see what people have experienced with MyLife.com’s previous incarnation Reunion.com.)
Randy Seaver was right to call me and Dick on the carpet for merely cross-posting an announcement from Ancestry.com, without researching the projects listed therein. Randy and Dick Eastman’s readers are on top of the issue concerning Ancestry.com and MyLife.com. I’ll leave this game to them, and travel to Virginia to attend this weekend’s Fairfax Genealogical Society’s annual Conference. You’ll find me at the society’s booth in the vendor hall at the Fairfax Marriott at Fair Oaks. Check the society’s website for details.
Happy family tree climbing!
