This is to apologize for a e-mail sent last Wednesday to this and other lists
sent by my niece but written by me and I never intended it to be sent. Once
written, my anger was released and I thought better.
However, my niece can go from Lady to the word use for female dog in 4.2
seconds. I did not realize she had sent the message until the next morning.
That being say, some good things came form the e-mail.
1. After a discussion with AOL, I now get it for $7.00 less.
2. Many e mails were sent in agreement.
3. The lady who ripped me off has now listed my research as hers on her web
site, with the a Mulatto slave as the great grandfather of her husband. She
said she did the research herself.
4. She sent to me updated information about her family with birthdays and
maiden names of living people. Smart enough to ripped me off, dumb enough to
send that information to a total stranger.
On the downside after doing genealogical research for thirty-three years and
having two articles published in The American Genealogist, I will now quit
genealogy. I will leave it to the new breed of Internet Genealogists that have
no sense of right or wrong.
So no need to unsubscribe me for an apology, I will do that soon myself.
