Oh, oh...someone has been reading my mind...this has to be the best warning (1st person's generally are)... but, too late for me. Others take heed.
What Almirus Fuddius wrote with great humor thrown in, is what I have worried about ever since I was notified of the death of a newly found, (after my shock of his untimely death) never met personally, 2nd cousin. We, too, exchanged everything we had on the family, and after several years, even our own family. Of course, we said, not for publication. We had planned to meet up this May in Reno, Nevada with another 2nd cousin, newly found.
From what I understand in speaking with his family by phone, no one is interested in carrying on...What will happen to my immediate family data? 2nd cousin told me he printed it out as well as saved it and added to his own, but I don't know to what generation! I hope his family will use good judgment and delete all my living people. I hope they will not post it on some genealogy website, thinking that was what he would have wanted...I wish I saved his emails where he and I discussed this at length, how I felt, how he felt. Perhaps no one in his family will bother with it. One can hope and/or I can adopt this wonderful attitude that Mr. Fuddius has. And, last but not at all least, I sincerely hope I do not find myself in the "pickle of a mess" he unfortunately found himself and family in....But, I surely enjoyed my few years swapping data and photos with my 2nd cousin. It was an exciting time. I, too, sorely miss him.. Who will I tell now of my latest find?
