You eat an elephant one spoonful at a time. If I can put one record a day 
online, eventually I'll have all my file cabinet stuff organized and accessible 
for all. That's if I live long enough.

Mary,

That is a great idea to put proof arguments in the 'stories' section. I had not 
thought of that. 


I also hope to post fully documented family trees online, but have not had the 
time. Thanks for encouraging us to do a little at a time.

I've enjoyed this thread on public family trees. Some months ago I decided to 
take a pro-active stance on this subject by posting (very slowly, as I have 
time) 4 trees, one for each grandparent, to Ancestry, complete with documents, 
citations, photographs, etc. as an example for the 'name collectors' to follow. 
I ignore most hints that refer to either an undocumented tree, or the old Yale 
collection, now known as US records or some such. I use the 'stories' section 
for proof arguments for conflicting data. It's a way for me to preserve what 
I've researched.
