Reasons and logic of sources in genealogy

Drive-by genealogists should learn a few rules.  An absolutely great article worth reading.  Sharon Tate Moody breaks down the "source" hierarchy for "drive-by" genealogists to learn.  Everybody should read!

A lot of us are guilty of releasing incorrect and unproven information. Yes, in my early days I was also guilty of this, hence my drive for cleaning it all up and removing a lot of unnecessary data and let the next person find the source themselves. Correctly entered sources are mandatory!

New England's History: Dainggatti Entry Page

For those interested in my Farrell family you will be aware that my grandmother's people are Dainggatti. Jim Belshaw has some excellent articles on his blog New England's History: Dainggatti not only of the Dainggatti but the New England history as well.

Thanks Jim for making the entry page for the Dainggatti it will make it easier to keep track of the relevant post's.

Cummins and Miller Family

This book is dedicated to all those fellow researcher's in my mother's birth family - hence the 'maternal' category. If you haven't been here before or know us, my mother Peggy was adopted. We have no past personal historical history with this line except what we have learnt from our massive network of family members. Along the way we have met and maintained relationships with cousin Toni in WA (Miller family), cousin Tim in Qld (Melrose family), cousin Sue (Melrose family), cousin Fay (Fritchley/Saich famiy), Gail (Mundy family).
