    Your response is well thought out and addresses the points that irritated me the most.

    This may have brought him lots of hits to his blog but I’m hoping everyone simply deletes the feed from their readers.

    Right on Granny Pam! I am glad you went to the heart of the matter and wrote this heart-felt post about what it means to be a genealogy blogger.

    You said exactly what I’ve been thinking, but didn’t know how to say myself. A heart-felt thank you for this post.

    Thanks, Apple, Thomas and Dawn. I guess to get more comments, I should write on controversial topics more often. Seriously, I am glad that my thinking is somewhat in line with some other genea-bloggers.

    I agree with everything you have said, Pam. Thank you for taking the initiative and laying it all out for us! I for one will try to be diligent about sourcing my information and my conclusions to the research I have done.

    Your response is very well written and you have done what I consider is most important for all writers, you said what is the purpose of your work. Many folks just want to be able to copy what they see on the blog, Internet, or wherever and not worry about verifying it’s accuracy. They are not really doing genealogy if they do such. They are simply repeating stories. If the objective is to pass on historically accurate facts, the responsibility of verification is theirs, not yours.

    Thanks for the comment, Don. I appreciate the feedback.
