As many people new to genealogy are now using
the Web and genealogy software to research their family history, it seems
appropriate to issue a few cautions. Some of the material in this database
is still provisional, not proven to the rigorous standards of historical
proof, and some of it was provided by collateral lines, where I cannot
personally vouch for the research. In exchanging information with distant collateral lines, I have not attempted to check the correctness of the data.
This [a GED2HTML output] is one of several
different formats I am using to put my family history data on line. For
more than 40 years, since I was in high school, I have been doing research on my ancestors, and this
has included considerable research on the lines of my wife, Tamar Ann Mehuron.
I was trained as a professional historian, and have sought to document
every statement IN MY DIRECT LINE, with some exceptions which are
important to note:
This data has been "crippled" to remove information about persons
still living. In the former version of this website I gave the names
but not any personal information. But as identity theft has grown even
such basic information as mother's maiden name will be compromising, so
I no longer include the names of living persons, let alone any data about them. Of
course I have this information available if I am sure you are kin.
Since I do not always know when someone in the database has died, I
have defined "living" as anyone for whom no death date is listed and
the age is under 99 years. Thus many people who are deceased will also
not appear, unless I know they are deceased.Thus YOU WILL NOT FIND YOURSELF LISTED HERE, I hope. My name should not appear except on the main pages, either.
On some of the earliest lines, I have entered
data which seemed probable in the database, while in a highly detailed
history which I am writing (and which will gradually appear online as well),
I will provide full documentation, and cautions where appropriate. PLEASE
DO NOT ACCEPT EVERY CONNECTION AS PROVEN, especially in some of the
very earliest generations, or some of the collateral lines well removed
from the line I researched myself. There are some particular problems on the Vinson line.
Due to a glitch in my programming, some people's
military service is currently shown under "Title" in this database. this
will be corrected in a future update.
Please also understand that much of the data on
collateral lines of descent were not researched by me. I have had to rely
on the researches done by others, and cannot personally vouch for the quality
or accuracy of that research. I would ask that no one enter my data in
their own databases without at least spot-checking it, particularly when
it is a line of descent far removed from my own.
