I'm trying to find lots of records for people looking for their ancestors. For those concerned about following the rules, "Please limit the number of "Suggest A Correction" requests you send to an individual contributor to no more than 20 per week." If you insist on blasting out thirty or forty in a short time, I'm more likely to make mistakes trying to catch up, and to miss making family links. I try to do SACs within forty-eight hours but may not have time to message you. If sending SACs, please finish your research first (I got five non-duplicate SACs in twenty minutes on the same memorial from the same member). I'm willing to transfer memorials to relatives. If you sponsor a memorial (not in my family) that I created, I'll transfer regardless, you paid for it, you should get something. It was a wild "first year". I doubted I'd ever get 5000 memorials, now I've transferred more than that. If you list no email address or place to leave public message & I need to contact you, I'll send a SAC ;-) I probably won't find many more but I'll still be here for maintenance. I might even work on my *own* genealogy. E-mail address is

Hopefully you understand how I'm avoiding spammers.
