Patient Genealogists #5

From here to eternity: Internet research for patient genealogists

Patient Genealogists Do make safe cousin connections to avoid the riffraff.

  • Set up a free Yahoo Email or Gmail account, just for your genealogy correspondence
  • Consider a PO Box to receive snail mail safely.

Patient genealogists understand it is wise to go to the effort of obtaining a PO box, and never give out phone numbers or true street address of private residences. This might mean it will take a while for the receipt of a package of photocopies from a newly-discovered distant cousin, but the peace of mind in the safety department more than compensates for the time spent.

Happy family tree climbing!
