Hey Nancy, long time since "talking with you" on one or two of the other boards.

I've been doing this genealogy hunt for a few years, and sometimes I'm on the computer all day and part of the night....hunting, comparing, sending queries, etc.

And then months will go by and I do nothing......have lost interest at times...

Just recently decided to put my tree on reason is because I thought I could help "correct" the facts....don't think it has helped at all.....

I write comments and see that nothing changes.....lazy people, I say.

But I have "met" some wonderful folks through the message boards on county sites, Genforum, etc.

As to the wrong info in state Marriage books.....guess this could happen...the worst for me is when an official death certificate has a date for birth and death different than the tombstone! (But of course, the death cert. info is given by a next of kin.....and way back, some of the kin did not know exact dates, or even who the parents of the deceased were.)

I will probably start back up in January finishing inputting my info onto Ancestry.....if I can get the "drive" to do so!!
