<< Hello Howard and all,
I'm afraid I disagree. Many times the answer to someone's question had
given me valuable information that I didn't even know I needed.
It has given me new ideas on where to look for information and provided
addresses and URLs for places and websites that I didn't know existed.
I often read someone's questions and wait to see the answer come along.
When it's replied to privately I am denied a new avenue of research.
Please everyone keep sending answers to the list unless it's absolutely of
no benefit to others.
It's sort of like tearing the pages out of a medical book that deal with
cancer because you don't have it - yet.
Read and delete if it doesn't help you.
Thanks for letting me get my two cents worth in.
Best wishes and good hunting
Madeline, I agree with you 100% as long as the content pertains
to genealogy and doesn't get too chatty with current events, etc.
